[AfriNIC-rpd] What is our take on the central pool IPv4 exhaustion?

Hello Adiel,

The point relating to route objects databases refers to the fact that at the
moment, in order to register route objects, it is necessary to use the RIPE
database, at least to my knowledge (if I am incorrect in this, I apologise
and I would *WELCOME* an AfriNIC route objects database)

Basically for clarity, a route object database is a publically queryable
database of which prefix's are actively being advertised by an ASN, and
possibly to who they are being advertised.

Such a database is necessary for proper bogon filtering and tracking.
