Technical Summary WHOIS output objects from registries (including both Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) and Domain Name Registries (DNRs)) were collected and analyzed. This document describes the statistical analysis process and results of the analysis of existing WHOIS information. The purpose of this document is to build an object inventory to facilitate discussions of data objects included in Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) responses. Working Group Summary The document received light review, but its content is well understood by the entire working group, was presented and discussed during at least two meetings, and has always been non-controversial. The consensus was "good but quiet"; the WG had much more meaty things on which to focus. Document Quality Early discussion of the document centered around whether to publish it at all. Consensus of the WG is that this is useful work to record as it draws a line from WHOIS to RDAP explaining some of the choices found in other documents. It may also be referenced by ICANN work as their policies transition from WHOIS to RDAP. Personnel The document shepherd is Murray Kucherawy (WEIRDS co-chair). The responsible Area Director is Pete Resnick.
