Bonjour PDWG,

J'ai vu les cochairs mentionnés rfc 7282 dont la version en français est

Sommes-nous prêts pour:

⁃ Le consensus, qui est le chemin et non la finalité

⁃ Un consensus approximatif est atteint lorsque toutes les questions ont
été abordées et pas nécessairement prises en compte

⁃ L'absence de désaccord est plus importante que l'accord

⁃ 10 personnes contre et 200 personnes en faveur pourraient ne pas être un
consensus approximatif

⁃ 200 personnes contre et 10 personnes en faveur pourraient encore être un
consensus approximatif

Un *Consensus approximatif*, et non une unanimité ou un consensus total
Dans la discussion et l'adoption de politiques et de meilleures pratiques
qui sont techniquement solides et servent les intérêts de la région, est

Dans l'espoir que ça puisse aider.

>> 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.
