[rpd] Policy Development Draft Agenda for AfriNIC 25

Hi Sami, Dewole,

I would like to congratulate both of you for the work which you have 
done as Working Group Chairs during the last public policy 
meeting.  I don't think that the two objections from a director of 
Afrinic Ltd were valid.  I preferred not to argue about that as it 
would make future discussions more difficult.

I suggest requesting Afrinic Ltd to publish an analysis of the impact 
of each draft policy at least two weeks before the agenda for the 
public policy meeting is announced.  The purpose is to give the 
author of the draft policy enough time to make changes to the draft.

It looked like the tradition of the Working Group is to rely on 
voting to take a decision.  Some of the decisions of the Working 
Group Chairs during the discussions were not clear.   There was an 
assessment from an independent law firm which contains an incorrect 
description of the policy development process.  I leave it to the 
members of Afrinic Ltd to see whether it would be useful to do 
anything about these implementation issues.
