[AFRINIC-rpd] PDP discussions

Dear All,
I would like to express again my concern about this policy which is a
strategy to hold our precious v4 adresses and deprive Afrinic from its
unique source of revenues. Then how will AFRINIC continue serving this
continent by providing training and support for internet growth?
I call all board members and the whole community to take their
responsability to avoid any action which will jeopardize afrinics' future.
Best Regards,
