Hello Mr Alan,

I have a question: I heard the term bottom up a lot during the last AIS. So
it occured to me that Afrinic is driven by the community wich decides , via
consensus, on policies and such. This is such a refresher from real life
and politicians who enforce their rules on us...

Then I'm wondering : is this the same for bylaws then? Community draft
policies and ask members for approval? Going by the same tangent (bottom up
model) is it wise for the board to participate? As this could lead to
unfortunate situations (like what I mentioned with real life politicians)

Sorry that is two questions :-)
