Recently NIC México (Manager of the .mx ccTLD) along with eCOM-LAC (Federation of Latin-America and the Caribbean for the Internet and Electronic Commerce) were appointed official sponsors for this campaign. The full proposal was supposed to be presented to ICANN during 2008  but the new gTLD process in ICANN has been delayed and now it is expected to be presented by mid-2011.
The official gTLD name will be appointed by ICANN if the proposal is approved. Other names that are being considered are .latin and .latino. Similar proposals have already been approved like the Asian gTLD (.asia) and the European Union's ccTLD (.eu).
