[rpd] Last Call for "AFPUB-2016-GEN-001-DRAFT-04 - Internet Number Resources Review by AFRINIC"

I think that the problem here is that anyone can ask for a review on any
member, with no restriction on the number of times. Tying up the member
and AFRNIC and a admin nightmare.

It is my understanding that under the RSA, if resources are not being
used, AFRNIC has the right to investigate. If there is evidence to suspect
that a member has stopped using the resources under which the allocation
was justified, I am sure that if such evidence was made available to
AFRINIC, under the current RSA, they’d have the authority to validate.

Hi Kris,

Is the former board member insinuating that AfriNIC  is  low class RIR"?
How can the community understand this fall?

Anyway, how much does review  cost ARIN and RIPE? Could would you please
be specific with figures? How do they  manage  based on their respective
size? Please stop appealing to emotion and rather be factual.

By the way, your question  “do you guys know arin and ripe financial
capability?” clearly show that review should be done.

Are you saying that because of the perception that AfriNIC is poor we
should not be accountable and transparent. What irony! You have therefore
given more reason for the community to support, adopt and implement this

just one question : do you guys know arin and ripe financial capability?
in comparison to the weakest of all RIR? Think properly and cut emotions
else guys do what you want and when afrinic is hit hard then do notl look
back i hope the only 1500 we have also cheating our own system can bail
afrinic out.

I am sure these have been discussed here, but latest discussions on this
list made me check the situation in other regions and I found the

INRs review

Fraud and abuse reports

Quarterly report


Audit Activity

Report form

This is an important role for RIR, so not surprising it is done elsewhere
and can be done by AFRINIC with all risks managed and mitigated. This is
becoming a must when we all seem to agree the future of RIR is in
“Registry Accuracy”.

It is your misinterpretation that is more likely to be confusing to the
community.  Resource review is essential activity for Internet registries
even if they are only bookkeepers like some would have them be.

AFRINIC would be failing in its accountability to the community without a
policy like this.   Please let the Co-Chairs do their job

The final legal feedback notwithstanding, I think there has been more than
enough negative feedback in this last call to make it quite clear that
this policy does NOT have consensus at this time and I urge the co-chairs
to remand it to the authors and the list for further refinement or
abandonment rather than leaving it in last call status. There is no reason
for last call to be maintained beyond the point where clearly the policy
has no consensus as is and will need substantial revision. It only
confuses the community.
