I understand the Anycast policy proposal was moved to last call today.

thanks for that, I know there is at least one African network operator
who will be able to
use their business plan when this policy is formalised.

On a related note, I understand there was some questions about why
this doesn't relate to IPv6>

Please see my mail from Nov below on that topic:

Since I got no guidance, I made no changes.

I still think this is only a v4 issue and would not arise in v6, but
am happy to hear other views.
