Thank you for suggesting 3 weeks for the “legal due diligence” work. It works for me.

Kind regards,

did we get a due date for this? my eternal worry is that we simply
allow this to become Yet Another Deadline that goes swoosh.

we have seen on other mailing lists that afrinic’s legal department
*can* indeed be quick to act if they desire. at the risk of censure
myself, dare i ask : what does this working group think is a reasonable
deadline that we should give to the secretariat (afrinic)? personally,
i think three weeks is more than reasonable ..

most of this seems reasonable to me, and thank you for indulging me,
ben. might i ask that the co-chairs *soundly remind* the secretariat
and/or their legal counsel that joe public is - and has been -
patiently waiting. wishy-washy no commitment dates, and long, silent,
pauses between interactions, do not help build accountability and trust.
