this is to continue the open RT ticket #5340 - register .wiki gTLD domains
it's a long ticket and all about the .wiki TLD. we once got it from Raymond King of ICANN wiki and .wiki and met at office and already had it working for one day but then ICANN took it back and we're still waiting on the outcome of that.
quote from Yana: "
"Ray has agreed to give us w.wiki. It will take a few months as the TLD is still in the period when only trademark registrants can register domains."

"comment: unfortunately w.wiki as taken from us again shortly after we got it, by ICANN. we are meanwhile waiting on info from Ray when/if this can continue.
setting to stalled "
the issue is about 2 letter domain names. Ray can give us 1 letter and 3 letter domain names, but ICANN has special rules for the 2 letters like "de" "fr" etc. that we wanted for the language versions, because they say they can be confused with existing TLDs .de .fr etc.. afaik.. ianal
we need to ask Raymond King about the status here at some point
