Bonjour co-chairs,

Merci pour ce résumé des réunions de Lagos qui enfin clarifie mes
préoccupations sur le respect de la procédure définit dans le CMP 3.0.
Pour moi vous avez respecté la procédure et ceux qui pensent le contraire,
je les invite à faire appel à cette décision.

3.0 of

further input from the community before being passed on for ratification by
the AFRINIC board or returned to the mailing list.

>> 3.4.2 Public Policy Meeting
>> The draft policy is placed on the agenda of an open public policy
meeting. The agenda of the meeting shall be announced on the Resource
Policy Discussion mailing list at least two weeks prior to the meeting. No
change can be made to a draft policy within one week of the meeting. This
is so that a stable version of the draft policy can be considered at the
meeting. *The Chair(s) determine(s) whether rough consensus has been
achieved during the Public Policy Meeting.*
>> The Chair(s) shall publish the minutes of proceedings of the Public
Policy Meeting not later than three weeks after the meeting.

addressed and declaring consensus in light of such sustained objections is
a clear violation of the intent of the PDP and malfeasance in the duties of
the PDWG co-chairs.
> In light of the unrepentant attitude of the co-chairs, I must join Andrew
in insisting that the appeal must go forward to the appeals committee. If
the co-chairs can retain this position even in light of all of the
post-meeting discussion of this matter, then clearly, they have no interest
in seeking accommodation. I consider this email above all else to be
evidence that attempts have been made to reach accommodation with the
co-chairs and have failed.

>> 3.4.3 Last Call
>> A final review of the draft policy is initiated by the Working Group
Chair(s) by sending an announcement to the Resource Policy Discussion
mailing list. The Last Call period shall be at least two weeks. *The
Working Group Chair(s) shall evaluate the feedback received during the
Public Policy Meeting during this period and decide whether consensus has
been achieved.*
>> 3.4.4 Approval
>> *The Working Group Chair(s) shall recommend the draft policy to the
AFRINIC Board of Directors for approval if it has the consensus of the
Policy Development Working Group.* The recommendation shall include a
report of the discussions of the draft policy and feedback from the Last
Call. The draft policy shall be ratified by the AFRINIC Board of Directors.

>> The proposal draft discussed at the meeting was published on this
mailing list on October 1, 2017. Over an 8-week period, that document
received one comment (and a +1) stating that the IPv6 reserve be restricted
only to new members.
>> We duly observed previous comments from those that oppose soft landing
and would rather remove restrictions. This concern is addressed by the fact
that the IP addresses under discussion were in fact handed to AFRINIC in
2011 under a global policy which equally redistributed the remaining IPv4
pool amongst RIRs (effectively replacing the ?on-demand? policy - despite
the fact that other RIRs may have had greater need and demand at that
time). Refer to Section 3 (Rationale) of
