Thu Apr 22 15:01:30 UTC 2021

Hi Darwin,

A quick note. Only ONE of the two policy proposals that reached consensus is under appeal.

Dear AfriNIC PDWG,

First, we would like to thank the community for entrusting us with this core role and responsibility. Indeed, we express our commitment to ensuring adherence to the CPM and the PDP, and to bringing back decorum in the deliberations of the PDWG.

As you may have noticed from a previous email, we are currently analyzing the discussions on the current 12 DPPs. This includes preparing a report on the two (2) DPPs that were said to have achieved rough consensus, but which are currently under appeal.

While the CPM will serve as the core guide in our work and the community’s deliberations, we remind the community to adhere to the AfriNIC Code of Conduct ( This will ensure that deliberations remain professional, respectful and appropriate at all times.

As the community is aware, PDWG decisions are consensus-driven, with the intention being to ensure that any objections and/or concerns raised during policy discussions are either addressed or resolved adequately. As Co-Chairs, we subscribe to RFC 7282 ( which provides a very good guide for building and determining rough consensus in environments similar to ours. We therefore encourage the community to read the document.

We expect to have our initial analysis concluded in the first week of May 2021 after which we will engage the community accordingly. This will also enable us to progress with the preparations for our next PPM which is scheduled for June 2021.

In the meantime, we acknowledge that an appeal has been submitted against the confirmation of consensus on our selection as Co-Chairs. The outcome of the appeal and deliberations thereafter which inform our work going forward.

We look forward to a better AfriNIC for all of us.

Best Regards,

AfriNIC PDWG Co-Chairs.
