Seriously transparency triggers competition which is healthy for innovation
and self check for fraud and other frowned on vices. I stand to be
corrected but within the scope of best practices and community engagement
(e.g. adopting tested democratic methods) can we se the benefit of methods

"Dear Members/ Community,
Organisation X has requested /14 IPv4 resources to be used for providing
hosting services, Afrinic hostmasters has evaluated the initial resource
request and find it to be compliant with current policies for IPv4
allocation. In line with allocations greater than or equal to /15 to be
referred to the community for comments before approval the community is
hereby welcomed to share its opinion regarding this request"

another example which may be implemented as quarterly summaryreports to the

" .... out of the /15 IPv4 requested within the second quarter of this year
/18 were requested to provide hosting services .... "

How does this jeopardize members business and NDA.
