Based on the Last call, Discussion and the Consensus calls on the list, the following are the points that still have not gain Consensus AFAIK and how i feel we should proceed with them.

3.5.1 (Para-2)
Exhaustion Phase 2
During this phase a minimum allocation/assignment size will be /27, and the maximum will be /22 per allocation/assignment.

Based on the deliberations, i will change the minimum to a /24 from the current  /27


3.8 (Para -2)
AfriNIC resources are for the AfriNIC geographical region. For each allocation or assignment made during the Exhaustion Phase, no more than 10% of these resources may be used outside of the AfriNIC region, and any use outside the AfriNIC region shall be solely in support of connectivity back to the AfriNIC region.

Based on SM's email summary of the Consensus on this paragraph, I feel that very pertinent arguments have been raised for and against this.

Because i feel strongly about it, i would personally like for the statement to be stayed. Albeit, It is the responsibility of the  PDP Chairs at this point to draw rough Consensus IMO.

I am open to revising the statement or even totally removing it, but my actions will be guided by the recommendations of the Chairs which i believe will be a result of an analysis of the deliberations on this Paragraph.

Life is the educators practical joke in which you spend the first half learning, and the second half learning that everything you learned in the first was wrong.
