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

Sounds like a plan and let the process consider publishing this information
each quarter if not annually please.

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

Looking forward indeed.

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

Yes I am and we look forward to a simple tool that is easy to parse and
find such information  from the stat file as well.

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

Perfect and looking forward to that too.

publication mandatory.

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.

In all honesty this is very disappointing. Even the so called friendly
version of the annual report which is VERY IMPORTAMT for members and the
community to assess the organization's achievements for its core activities
yet it's not ready 6 months after end of 2016 [1].


[1] If we are too improve accountability and transparency across the board,
having this reports published as earlier as possible will be better perhaps
within Q1 and before next AGMM please.
