Thank you for providing the above information about how the analysis
of a proposal is done. How long does it usually take from the time
the PDWG is asked to provide feedback  to when the analysis of the
proposal is available?

I'll use this proposal as an example. I expected the proposal to be
an easy one as there was a similar proposal previously. The author
mentioned that there was a similar proposal being discussed in the
RIPE region. I assumed that there might be some analysis to help
participants discuss the proposal prior to the policy meeting. My
understanding of the email exchange (I could be wrong) is that all
the analysis work is being left to Afrinic Ltd. I am not sure
whether that is how it works in other service regions.
