There are two key issues that need to be addressed, however whether they can be treated separately or not is another matter.
In the first instance the IEDR is attempting to setup a policy advisory board of some kind that would help with policy issues and development.
The second matter is to formalise the relationship between the registry and its resellers through a formal registrar contract.
Unfortunately not many of the 100 odd resellers have taken the time to give the registry feedback on its proposals.
Does this mean that the reseller community is apathetic?
I somehow doubt it.
What is more likely is that there is a combination of legacy issues from the previous administration of the registry combined with business pressures ie. resellers are too busy running their day to day business to get actively involved in discussing contracts and policy matters.
