Dear all,

I support the idea of making this information mandatory and verified.

Is only one attribute, but keeping two names.

I’m also on the same thinking, that just abuse-c is better, but there is no harm. Calling it with two names (if the people only need to update one), works well for tools that are relying in the older one (but is true that very few folks use it in this region …).

Keeping both, may be a temporary measure until people update the new one (and the old data is transferred automatically, of course).

Hi Jordi,

In fact, we can keep both, the IRT object and the abuse-c and make the whois in such way that respond with the same data to queries for IRT or abuse-c.

IMO, having only 1 attribute (abuse-c or mnt-irt) should suffice, having both of them might add confusion.

It could help to have a special WHOIS flag / option to extract the referred IRT/Abuse-c object directly from the inet(6)num/aut-num:

something like:
whois -h <host> --abuse <inetnum>
