We will develop processes for publishing a summary of recovered space in the future.

I will find out why that space is marked as reserved.

I think you are asking for Afrinic to publish similar information in future.  Yes, we will do so, but it requires new internal tools to be developed.

The existing process is purely internal.  We will produce a public summary of the process.

The friendly version of the annual report will be published by 15 July.  The mandatory requirement in the bylaws is satisfied by the audited financial report, but we recognise that members want more than that, and we are committed to delivering a friendly version of the annual report.
