Hi folks,

I hope you consider this operational and on Topic:)

We have been receiving some reports of rejection of TLD strings at the 
ISP level. Some of this may be due to length limitations set in peoples 
software, there may also be other causes.

We want to make sure that there is a place where people can go and pick 
up a current list of the strings that are in the root zone. (Without 
having to parse the zone file itself). To this end the IANA is 
maintaining a list that can be downloaded from the following information 

If you have questions please feel free to use the e-mail listed on the 
above URL.
