RIPE Task Forces

RIPE tasks are structured in two ways: time frame and task group. The task groups will be assigned to task forces, which are groups of individuals having a vital interest to achieve the tasks. The task forces designate a coordinator who is responsible for making sure that progress is made and that results will be achieved within the time frame that the task force has agreed.

The outcome of a task force is a report with recommendations. The recommendations will be discussed by the RIPE community, and implemented when consensus is reached.

The ripe-list mailing list carries general announcements and discussions about RIPE.
