[rpd] Appeal against softlanding-bis declaration of consensus

That is not accurate, the MAXIMUM an organisation can get in a 24 month period in phase 1 is a /18 under this policy, as per this: Within any 24-month period during Exhaustion Phase 1, an organization may receive one or more allocations/assignments totalling the equivalent of a /18.

That creates a fundamental problem for any organisation that requires a lot more than a /18 in 24 months – and a /18 is a tiny amount of space – that’s probably a months burn rate for us at the moment.  So what happens once I’ve hit 100% and can’t get anymore? Where do I get space since this community won’t pass a transfer policy that gives me access to the global secondary markets?

Hi Mark

Again this is not true. It is explicitely said in the policy that any
organization (regardless of its size) can be allocated /18 within a 24
month period during exhaustion phase 1 and /22 during exhaustion phase
2. Anyone can always get more allocation as long as they justify 90%
utilization. I fail to see how it prevents growth for anyone. However it
does ensure good management of our ressources.

The policy doesn't punish success. In any case, it encourages carefully
planned growth

Why would anyone disagree with that? Is IPv6 not the common sense option
for any growth plan?
