Morning, There's been some very interesting discussion on the list recently, raising all sorts of point, with the odd diversion here and there. There are a few main points I'd like to address, with updates from the RIPE NCC, with whom I had a very useful conversation this morning. RIPE NCC Audits & Reporting Currently the NCC reports on audits to the NCC Services working group and they prepare a report for the community. While this overall reporting method won't change, they have agreed to send the latest copy of the report to the AA-WG and to send a copy of future reports to the list. Education/BCP As previously mentioned, this is an action on the AA-WG Chairs and we will be reporting back to you on this in the run up to and during RIPE 63. RIPE NCC Abuse Complain Procedure Along with more information on the Audits the NCC will be mailing the list, likely before the middle of next week, on their plans for the abuse complaint procedure. They will be outlining improvements to how abuse can be reported, what those reporting incidents should expect and what will be accepted. While information will, of course, be sent to the list, there will also be a presentation on this matter at RIPE 63. All of this is part of an ongoing plan to deal with issues with inconsistencies (deliberate or accidental) in the Database. The work of the ACM-TF also touches on this. This email is not meant as a full description of the NCC and WG activities, as I said, more information will be made available next week, so I would ask you to hold any questions until then. If it is felt that there is a requirement for further changes or expansion of activities, then we get into the territory of proposals and the NCC budget and both the AA-WG chairs and the NCC will render any assistance they can to anyone who would like to examine the possibilities there. One additional point, this mailing list, and the WG as a whole, will remain open to anyone in the RIPE community. As has been mentioned, we cannot work in isolation, nor should we. As regards the bounces, I'll pass them on to the relevant folk. Thanks again for your robust participation over the last two weeks and hopefully both this email and the NCC's response next week will go a long way to answering your points. Regards, Brian.
