*Dear PDWG*


We refer to the appeal that has been lodged against the decision of the
AFRINIC PDWG Co-Chairs in respect of the policy proposal bearing the
name ‘General Abuse Contact’ and ID [AFPUB-2020-GEN-005-DRAFT01].

In order to allow the Appeal Committee to perform its duty without any
influence from discussions being held on the present mailing list, we
consider it appropriate to suspend all deliberations on this draft
policy proposal pending the outcome of the appeal.
