Yes and no.  About 2 years ago, the TECHSEC Working Group was established,
this WG deals with the technical aspects of Internet security.  So-far,
discussion has mainly focussed on DNSSEC and CIRT, but the charter of the
WG is broad enough to include DDOS tracking.  If you are interested in
this topic, speak up on the mailinglist techsec-wg@localhost.

(And this applies to other topics as well, if you think it is related to
an existing WG (http://www.ripe.net/ripe/wg/index.html) speak up on the
list for the WG, if the topic doesn't belong in any group, ask the chair
for a BoF on the topic).

This is a common misunderstanding.  There are 2 organizations: RIPE and

RIPE is an informal organization of people interested in IP-networks in
Europe and surrounding areas.  There is no formal membership, mailling
lists are open to everyone, anyone can attend the meetings, activities are
performed by individuals on a voluntary basis.

The RIPE NCC is a service organization it performs activities primarily
for the benefit of the membership in Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia
and African countries located north of the equator. These are mainly
activities that its members need to organise as a group, even though they
may compete in other areas.  Examples are IP/AS registration, TTM, whois,
and more.

See http://www.ripe.net and click on "about RIPE" and "about RIPE NCC" for
more information.
