[rpd] Appeal against softlanding-bis declaration of consensus

I do have to say –
When I see the policy authors of a policy that has *supposedly* passed consensus – declaring interpretations that are clearly *not* what the policy says – and I see people interpreting it against its very clear wording – and the policy authors telling afrinic how to interpret a policy (which is staff’s job) – when an interpretation by the staff has already been given against the *very* clear wording…
Well – consensus? Really? When people don’t seem to even know what the policy, written in English, says is clear English?

Ornella presentation of the SL-BIS is accurate.
SL-BIS set not limit on the number of requests a member can make until they reach the maximum allowable size during each exhaustion phase.
Demonstrating efficient use of previous allocation of at least 90% is one of the allocation criteria for additional allocation.
See below allowable limits and Allocation criteria.
184.108.40.206 Within any 24-month period during Exhaustion Phase 1, an organization may receive one or more allocations/assignments totalling the equivalent of a /18.
220.127.116.11 Within any 24-month period during Exhaustion Phase 2, an organization may receive one or more allocations/assignments totalling the equivalent of a /22.
18.104.22.168 In order to receive IPv4 allocations or assignments during the Exhaustion Phase, the LIR or End User must meet IPv4 allocations or assignment policy requirements (by demonstrating and justifying the need for requested space) and must demonstrate to have efficiently used at least 90% of all previous allocations or assignments (including those made during both the Pre-Exhaustion and the Exhaustion Phase).
22.214.171.124 In the case of new LIRs or End Users (those that have no previous allocations or assignments prior to the Exhaustion phase), this requirement does not apply to their first allocation or assignment request.
