In deed the discussion is meant to throw light on some of the challenges
facing the community (both members, staff, board etc) and surely policies
may be born if necessary. I believe I am not being biased to any party but
rather seeking for the good interest of our organisation.

A board member has assured the community hostmasters will soon respond to
the questions asked ...

What are the processes followed for evaluating huge first time allocations
(/16 IPv4 downwards)? They should also tell us how additional request of
similar order is handled.
Do they make any recommendations? To whom?
Who currently signs-off to approve such requests?

I hope the community will much appreciate the need not only to discuss
policy and vote to implement it but will consider to be the ultimate
quarters to interpret and sign off on such allocation for the regions
