Dear Andrew,

AFRINIC has found no indication of a problem with publishing the stats files in recent days.

We have checked several recent files from http://ftp.afrinic.net/stats/afrinic/2018/, and see the following numbers of ASN allocations:

~ grep -E "asn.*1.*2018" delegated-afrinic-20181201 | wc -l
~ grep -E "asn.*1.*2018" delegated-afrinic-20181202 | wc -l
~ grep -E "asn.*1.*2018" delegated-afrinic-20181203 | wc -l
~ grep -E "asn.*1.*2018" delegated-afrinic-20181204 | wc -l

The delegated-afrinic-latest file is a link to one of the numbered files, and the link is updated only after the new file has been put into place.
