Hi Dirk,

Quoting Dirk Hunter on Wednesday August 31, 2005:
| I'm going to assume that there were a few names that didn't have a
| single entry for the ballot - are these now open for "general
| consumption" or are they still held as geographic names and are unable
| to be registered?

The will be, but not yet. Here are the relevant parts of the auDA FAQ:

Q: What happens to domain names that are not allocated by ballot?
A: Domain names that are not allocated by ballot will be released by auDA
   at a later date. auDA's intention is that the names will be available
   for registration on a first come, first served basis in the same way as
   other domain names.

Q: Will auDA publish the list of domain names that are not allocated by
A: No.
