Hi PDWG's Chairs,
Thanks for your email, brothers!

...i'm not sure, but i think this makes a precedent
to AfriNIC's seems to be the first time
that the AfriNIC's BoD rejects a DPP adopted by
the PDWG. Then the event raises at least two

•1] As that DPP has been already adopted by the
PDWG, is it fair to back it to list for discussions or
to just sent it back to its status before starting the
ratification process?
•2] When a DPP adopted by the PDWG is rejected
by the AfriNIC's BoD; how their justification should
be formated and reported to the PDWG?
•3] The PDWG's Chairs are challenged to exercise
their right to "Varying the Process" [1]. Should they do? :-)
•4] ...

Ok! but if the DPP is retrograded, what is its status?

...what will be its next step if the consensus, already
reached, remain?

If it goes back to RPD for discussions, it might be
understood as an injustice...

PDWG's Chairs, could you, please, clarify the actual status of this DPP?
