Are we replaying the discussions on the rpd list exactly a year ago?
.. and many other mails for those who care.
AfriNIC cannot and should not discuss the details of specific
allocations on mailing lists, just because members are asking.
I think we should let AfriNIC run as an organization, reporting and
responding to the community as properly constituted using proper channels.
I hope we would move on to more productive things, instead of pulling
down our own RIR.
