Death of the "Global Routing Registry"

Dale, >As the result of an intense dicussion last night including decision-support >hardware, the term "Global Routing Registry" will be retired, to be replaced >by "Internet Routing Registry". Litle pieces of this big thing (like RIPE.db, >RA.db, MCI.db, etc) will be called "Local Routing Registries". > >--Dale Yep, IRR was selected on the flip of a coin, but my understanding of what the subcomponents are called was "routing registries." This was in part because of the confusion that might happen with purely local registries which will be maintained for local, internal configurations. The analogy was the "Internet is a network of networks" and the IRR is a routing registry of routing registries. --Elise -------- Logged at Wed Dec 7 22:35:38 MET 1994 ---------
