I will finish mine and join your list permently :-) though had a pretty test
mode after the training.

My be we can have more volunteers trained across the AfriNIC region say
based on country representatives and they take the responsibility to have
more training and readiness awareness carried out in their respective
countries, and of course those that have already implemented help on the
upcoming ones.

For those that have not implemented we help them and make the environment
conducive enough in any way to have them start thinking about v6 as well.

When you check on the Ghost Route Hunter out of the 54 countries only 19 are
up and running, meaning still more needs to be done.

So that we can have v6 live all the way.
