The only wrinkle I can think of here is who would then decide if a
new site should come or go, or check up on a site in that zone if
a random net user complains the site vanished.
The options I can think of:
1) dnsadm@ (my guess is they don't want it but I can't ask).
2) the first entity that appears inside a new CC becomes
the zone's administrative contact but dnsadm@ handles
the nameservice on their behalf.
3) Someone volunteers to perform this role for any CC that
can't handle their own DNS. They become the zone contact
but (unless this volunteer can also supply their own DNS
server too) they handle the actual updates by asking dnsadm@
to do it.
4) As someone else suggested - we recruit existing admins of
delegated zones to handle the new CC in addition to their
I'm sure there are more options... The easiest is probably (4).
They also would be "entering" by having noticed there is no existing
admin structure for their country code, and taking the next step
described in the manual which is send mail to hubs at . Whoever is
responsible for taking care of their email will need to fit into
this somewhere. You make the most sense because they probably
needed access to ftp-master.
