TLD-33.2 [Chair]
Obtain information from registries on plans for continued dependency on RIPE DB for domain objects.

[ Notes added after the closing plenary session:

Feedback during the plenary suggests that I have expressed this action item far too tersely for clarity.

Several issues arise here: the large number of domain objects in the RIPE DB, authority for these objects and appropriateness of this location for them, quality of data in these objects, possibility of distributing data among several databases, coherency of operational contact data, single point of initial reference, control of access to the data, data privacy, and possible differences in policy among registries.

These issues need to be discussed in co-ordination with DB WG, next requirements determined, and corresponding resources identified.
