Just got this back from InternetNZ re the .geek.nz submission.
Interesting to note two things.
1) My request to have .geek.nz processed at the same time as .bank.nz was
rejected. They can only apparently handle one at a time.
2) There will be no more 2ld's until they finish a full review.
Got in just in time but there will be no .celt.nz =(

The .nz Oversight Ctte (NZOC) reported on their planned work schedule at
today's Council Meeting. NZOC noted that the review of both the new 2LD
creation process and the surrounding discussions about the nature of the
space itself, was high on their priority list after the SRS is implemented.
On that basis, and in line with the sequential process adopted for
.maori.nz/.bank.nz, the Council passed the following resolution:
MOVED: Streatfield/Bourne 'THAT
(a) a moratorium start today on all new 2LD applications (no more will
because of the upcoming review of 2nd level domains by NZOC
(b) that .bank.nz continues
(c) that .geek.nz proceeds sequentially after .bank.nz is concluded
ABSTENTION De Salis/Davidson
Given that the review of the 2LD process will involve public consultation,
and given the nature of your community of interest, the consultation would
benefit from the input of your knowledge, experience and expertise.
We will keep you posted on the progress on .bank.nz. I am unable to give
you a precise time frame, as the Request For Discussion (RFD) for .bank.nz
opened on August 26 and will not conclude before October 25, nor later than
Nov 24. At that stage the straw poll will be arranged, which runs for a two
week period, finishing around 9 December. Until then, we will not know
whether that application moves into the next stage of public submissions, a
period which runs for another 30-60 days. Note, that should .bank.nz fail
to meet the threshold in the straw poll, that would mean that the .geek.nz
proposal would move into the RFD stage in mid-December, a timing which may
not give the proposal as much attention as might otherwise be the case. The
timing is negotiable with the proposer.
