From a recent Nominet email: ----- quote ------ As a reminder, rights holders have until 06:00 BST (05:00 UTC) on the 25th June 2019 to register their reserved .uk rights. Any unclaimed rights for second level .uk domain names will then expire and will not be available for registration until the 1st July 2019. The Release Process A dedicated RoR EPP connection will be available for registrars wishing to register those domains for which rights are released starting on the 1st July 2019. A testbed will be made available in June 2019 for you to test your connection ahead of the release. A draft of our proposed release plan and a list of remaining unclaimed rights will be made available in May 2019. The finalised release plan and a list of domain names that will become available will be shared on the 26th June ahead of the 1st July 2019 release. Please Note: Web Domain Manager (WDM) will not support the registrations of release rights during the release period to mitigate potential risk ----- end quote ------ It doesn't sound to me as if the ror expired domains will just become available for registration (why would there need to a dedicated EPP connection if they were?) sounds like there's going to be another money grab to me. Have Nominet said anything about the intended release process that I've missed?
