Dates are finalized and a lot of applicants have work to do before tomorrow.

ICANN just provided a timeline for the new top level domain application process going forward.

The “big reveal” date, when ICANN releases the full list of applicants and the strings they applied for, will be June 13.

Digital Archery, which will be used for slotting which batch an application falls into, will run June 8 to June 28.

Additionally, ICANN says there are over 500 incomplete applications currently in its system. This means the applicants haven’t yet completed the applications or haven’t paid for them yet. The application system is scheduled to close tomorrow, so it will be interesting to see how many applications are abandoned.

A full schedule is here.
