[rpd] inputs on IPv4 Inter-RIR policy proposals - AFRINIC needs this policy now!

Hi all,

Le jeudi 20 juin 2019, JORDI PALET MARTINEZ via RPD <rpd at
<mailto:rpd at>> a écrit :

    As said, this text is redundant (see specific text below my
    signature), but I don't mind to have explicit text if this
    facilitate the community to reach consensus.

    Here is my proposal, again, please comment about this ASAP, so we
    can submit a new version already, instead of waiting to be closer to
    the next meeting. This way we can ensure that we get on time the
    staff impact analysis, in case something else need to be amended.

    "The Inter-RIR transfers will be automatically suspended in case the
    balance between IPv4 out-going and in-coming addresses becomes cero." 

...typos on “zero” ?

So, you shall consider that, if AFRINIC service|community doesn't gain
anything in the balance this policy should not be needed...
And that should be clearly stated.

    Note that in order to make it simpler, I've used a text that instead
    of talking about %, is stating that the balance of in/out is
    reached. This way we ensure that the total number of the "region
    IPv4 addresses" never can go down regarding the actual figures, so
    Africa never will lose addresses. Do you think this is good enough?

Ok after policing this, it seems to be necessary to clearly state,
*“policily”*, that the staff must follow-up (automatically) the in/out
balance, with regular (automated) public reports and a special (auto)
stop report (for the zero state).

I'm not sure how to "policy-ze" this idea. Perhaps with a separate policy ?



    Bylaws Article 11.4:
    11.4 Notwithstanding, the provisions of Article 11.2 the Board may
    adopt such policies regarding the management of internet number
    resources where it considers that the same is necessary and urgent,
    having regard to the proper and responsible usage of these resources.
