[AFRINIC-rpd] Commencement of the last call

Dear all,
This is my last comment on this policy.
I wonder if we can move forward by thinking about future of our people
specially academic institutions and provide a policy that will not focus on
V4 space and providing V4 addresses (because of i) impact on short term
afrinic's revenues; ii) his focus on south region without any provision of
equity; iii) his tends to introduce an exception on critical resources
management only in africa).
I would like to see policies and actions which will allow our academies to
act as first mover and catalyst for IPv6 adoption in our region.
Best Regards,
