Hello everyone, This is my first post in any of the RIPE mailing lists, I'm not even sure if I'm qualified or even "allowed". So feel free to put me in place, if needed :) I find Randy's post about the last /8 going to new entrants to be the most convincing one. Giving it away to us (LIRS who are already in possession of at least a /21) should be secondary to giving it to newcomers who really need it in order to get started. I don't mean that's the only group of companies/orgs that should be considered, but they DO need this the most. It's one thing to be tight with the resources you already have, and another to not have them at all. And anyway, how much would life change for an ISP, for example, just cause they got an extra /22? How much time would it really buy? Is that time as valuable as the ability for the new guys to also get SOME ipv4 connectivity? Sorry if I'm out of place, again, I just thought I should try this.

I agree with Randy and oppose this proposal. We should not use the last /8 for PI space but for LIRs who need at least a bit of v4 space to get going.
