[AFRINIC-rpd] IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment proposal

I have to actually agree with what SM implied in his below emails.

There has been a deafening silence of late from the PDWG chairs and various
AfriNIC staff.  (I realize that AfriNIC staff and board members seldom
comment on policy, but at the same time, the silence is rather worrying).

I'd also like to point out that many emails directly to AfriNIC staff
members also go unanswered for long periods of time (I have asked a series
of questions with regards to the bylaws and submission of resolutions for
example, sent 48 hours ago, and as of yet despite a resend, have still not
received any acknowledgement.)

Can we get this lack of participation rectified?
