This is great news.  Can Afrinic and Alain also open source the code on
Github for any applications they build around that?  RIPE does a great job

I also hope they'll use Python since all the high level RIPE Atlas stuff is
already built with Python so collaboration will be easier and deeper.

This sounds great and I'm looking forward to the outcome of the research.
