[rpd] [Community-Discuss] Controversial anti-shutdown policy discussed at RIPE

Thanks Marcus,

Just some feedback for the community.

It's been a great experience here at RIPE and some of the ideas given and the extensive discussions following the presentation referred to by Marcus have been both useful and informative.

Draft 2 will be submitted shortly very much in line with what I presented in that presentation - and before the 7 day deadline as per the PDP so we can discuss on that basis.

Following the meeting in Nairobi, I suspect we will then be gathering still further input and further drafts will follow, if there is no consensus found on the floor for the draft 2 that will be submitted.

I think for myself, the most important thing I have seen at RIPE so far, is the huge willingness by people from every walk of life to engage in dialog and discussion over this, and it was heartening to see both my own positions and the positions of those I was discussing with shift as explanations were given and questions were asked and answered.  Since giving that presentation I have barely had a minute to think as people approached me to talk this through - and I really hope to see such engagement in Nairobi, because it truly showed the benefit of a multi stakeholder approach where open dialog and communication can happen, even in the absence of agreement and in the face of controversial material where people hold strong and emotive views.

I look forward to the discussions on the floor of the PDP and engaging with all of you to hear your thoughts and views and finding the right solution to the issue.

Subject: [Community-Discuss] Controversial anti-shutdown policy discussed at RIPE

Dear Colleagues.

You might want to see the presentation of the controversial draft anti-shutdown policy (AFPUB-2017-GEN-001-DRAFT-01) at a recent RIPE meeting.  I found the questions/comments from the RIPE community similar to that shared by many on the RPD, mostly about the inappropriateness of such policy in our region… or any other for that matter.  Enjoy watching it.
