During the AfriNIC-13 Public Policy Meeting, the "IPv4 Soft Landing 
Policy" (AFPUB-2010-v4-005) was discussed.  There was consensus on 
progressing the "IPv4 Soft Landing Policy" to Last Call, subject to 
the following changes or clarifications being made:

       * Policies under the exhaustion phase apply equally to all IPv4
         address space available to AfriNIC during this phase, regardless
         of whether or not the address space is part of the "Final /8".

       * Change the names of the two sub-phases within the Exhaustion
         Phase (sections 6.1a and 6.1b) to "Exhaustion Phase 1" and
         "Exhaustion Phase 2".

       * Clarify that the maximum allocation size of /22 (section 6.1b)
         applies independently to each allocation.  There is no limit to
         the number of times the same organisation may receive allocations
         under this policy.

We would like to solicit comments for a final review of the "IPv4 
Soft Landing Policy" proposal (AFPUB-2010-v4-005-draft-03).  Please 
send substantive comments to rpd at by 27 May, 2011.
