New/Revised RIPE Document Announcement
--------------------------------------
A new document described below is available from the RIPE document
store. 

Ref:		ripe-096
Title:		Authorisation and Notification of Changes in the RIPE Database
Author:		Daniel Karrenberg
Date:		13 Oct 1993
Format:		PS=24778  TXT=5675 bytes


Short content description
-------------------------

Two new attributes are defined for all objects in the RIPE database in
order to implement a generalised method for authorising changes and to
notify interested parties of any changes made to a specific object.  In
addition the authorisa- tion method provides a convenient way for
distri- buted maintenance of the database. 


FTP Access
----------
All RIPE documents and Internet RFC`s are available via anonymous FTP
from host ftp.ripe.net.  Type "ftp ftp.ripe.net". 

Login with username "anonymous" supplying your email address as the 
password.  After logging in, type "cd ripe/docs/ripe-docs" followed 
by the command "get ripe-096.txt".
 
Electronic Mail Retrieval of Documents
--------------------------------------
Documents can also be retrieved from the RIPE document store using a
mail server program.  For more information on how to use the program,
send email to: mail-server@localhost with "send HELP" in the body text. 

RIPE NCC Interactive Information Server
---------------------------------------
Type "telnet host info.ripe.net".  This is a menu driven service allows
the document store to be browsed.  After reading documents you are
prompted as to whether you would like to receive an email copy of the
document you have just read.  If you would, you simply enter your email
address and the document will be mailed to you. 

Below are details of alternative methods of access.
 
Gopher Access
-------------
The same documents are available via a "gopher" server at
"gopher gopher.ripe.net".

WAIS Access
-----------
There is also a "WAIS" server at wais.ripe.net, where there is a WAIS index
for RIPE documents "ripe-docs.src"

customized home pages, it can be accessed as:
