Although I was not asked this question, I perceive that some people may
expect me to answer it.

Hi Alan,

Yes certainly....

Yes, resources from members who go out of business are recovered.  The
recovered resources are quarantined for two years, during which time they
are marked as RESERVED in the WHOIS database.  After the ene of he
quarantine period, the recovered resources are released to the pool for
possible re-use.

We do not publicise the names of the members concerned.  The reserved space
may be found in raw data published at <ftp://ftp.afrinic.net/pub/

As far as I am concerned the list of members who defaulted and/or under
closure used to be published for example the below AFRINIC link.


Why are we being less transparent about this now? In fact since 2014, how
many members were closed up until 2017 as that record doesnt exist today?

I also checked the
ftp://ftp.afrinic.net/stats/afrinic/delegated-afrinic-extended-latest as
you recommended.

Are all those 2411 INR marked as “reserved”, resources from recovery?

If not how can one tell the difference between which are the recovered
space and everything else?
