[AFRINIC-rpd] IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment proposal

Hi SM,

Then it is a fair question to ask of the directors who are present on this
list, what is the situation when a new policy conflicts with an old policy,
and we get an explanation of the decision making process to figure out which
policy will end up winning the day.  I would hope that a review and decision
like this by the directors would not be an arbitrary process and there would
be a set way to evaluate this and come to a decision.  As such I would like
that process explained to this list.

AFPUB-2010-GEN-005 covers the development and modification of policies for
handling Internet Number Resources within the AfriNIC service region.  In
theory a new policy should not conflict with an existing policy as the new
policy is supposed to be reviewed carefully by all the people on this
mailing list, all the people at the meeting, all the people on this mailing
list, and all the directors of AfriNIC.

It would be up to the directors of AfriNIC to decide what to do.
