Hi Leo,
another question: within 62/8, minalloc is /19 according to RIPE.
Can you please then explain me the following /20 assignment ?
------------------------------------
inetnum: 62.78.64.0 - 62.78.79.255 
netname: COM-CON-AG-NET 
descr: com:con AG 
country: DE 
admin-c: HD187-RIPE 
tech-c: CCAG-RIPE 
status: ASSIGNED PI 
mnt-by: RIPE-NCC-HM-PI-MNT 
mnt-lower: RIPE-NCC-HM-PI-MNT 
mnt-by: COM-CON-MNT 
mnt-routes: COM-CON-MNT 
mnt-routes: DTAG-RR 
changed: hostmaster@localhost 20020910 
changed: axel.drogoin@localhost 20020919

------------------------------------------

Cheers,
