[AfriNIC-rpd] Return of Policy Proposal RPD Mailinglist: Abuse Contact Information in the AfriNIC Service Region

 Dear Colleagues,

The Abuse Contact Information Policy Proposal did not gather consensus
during the AfriNIC 12 Public Policy meeting held on 3rd June 2010 in Kigali,
Rwanda. In line with the AfriNIC PDP, the policy proposal returns to the
Resource Policy Discuss (RPD)mailing list (rpd at for further
discussion and may be presented at the next AfriNIC Public Policy meeting.

1. That a role handle (abuse-c) is used instead of an IRT Object
2. That the role handle (abuse-c) is made optional.

clearly understand the policy proposal. The discussions that have ensued
after the AfriNIC 12 public policy meeting are an attestation to this and

I therefore appeal to the community to participate in the discussions on
this (and other policy proposals) so that we can all contribute towards this
all important process.
