[rpd] Appeal against softlanding-bis declaration of consensus

Sorry – but – I’m kinda blown away here – so I need some clarification:

Alain – Are you saying that you can go back for more space beyond the /18 in a 24 month period – in contradiction of the clear wording of the policy

If you are – are you claiming that this is what others who agreed with this policy believed? Or are you saying that is now your interpretation and that is NOT what got the support for the policy?

Because this is pretty fundamental – either people believed the policy said something it certainly doesn’t – in which case the consensus argument is virtually null and void – because there is no consensus on what it actually says – or you are saying people knew the policy said you couldn’t go back – supported it on that basis – and you as the author are now misrepresenting what is already known.

Which is it please? I’d like to understand?

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.

Allowable limits Within any 24-month period during Exhaustion Phase 1, an organization may receive one or more allocations/assignments totalling the equivalent of a /18. Within any 24-month period during Exhaustion Phase 2, an organization may receive one or more allocations/assignments totalling the equivalent of a /22.

Allocations criteria 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). 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.
