I'd like to emphasize the importance of an expedient resolution to this
issue. There is now AfriNIC members asking the RIPE DB-WG to delay
closing the security hole that exists in the RIPE DB:


It is of course very strange that AfriNIC members feel they have to rely
on RIPE infrastructure and services rather than be able to use AfriNIC
services (which as an added benefit are the only authoritative source). 

It is becoming a very unfortunate situation, with a very clear solution
on the horizon: just make the IRR route-object creation process the same
like how RPKI ROAs can be created without the consent of the Origin ASN.

Kind regards,
