As far as the CoCCA Registry is concerned, .af ccTLD
is currently using CoCCA registry along with other
ccTLDs and we are happy with it.
However, I am going to present a demo of the CoCCA
OpenReg in APRICOT 2005 in Kyoto Japan, if anyone is
interested you are most welcome to come and see the
demo. Additionally if any ccTLD is willing to use
CoCCA we (CoCCA) will be glad to help them with it.
