I am concerned about this email since I think I have seen on this policy:
- clearly major disputes
- questions arising as to the chairpersons management
- significant consensus that there is an appeal
- this policy should not be at this stage, there was never consensus
- Chairman stated "Lets allow the appeals committee to decide on this.  I
think the co-chairs have done their job within the guidelines and the
outcomes of the meeting and decisions that were made should be respected."
- this was some time ago - my sense is that this is already beyond this

Maybe I am missing something but even NAPAfrica peers are discussing this.
I suggest that in order for AfriNIC to regain some credibility/stability
this should be dealt with swiftly and promptly!
