3. Executive Board Involvement in PDP

The Executive Board discussed the extent to which they are involved with the RIPE Policy Development Process (PDP).

4. Members-Discuss Mailing List Moderation

The Executive Board discussed the current moderation of the Membership Discussion mailing list. The Board agreed that general moderation should be removed to allow good discussion among members and instead individual members who do not act in accordance with the purpose of the mailing list and the principles of the RIPE Code of Conduct should be moderated.

Resolution EB#139-R-02:
The RIPE NCC Executive Board resolves to remove the temporary moderation of the members-discuss mailing list that was imposed on 21 July 2020. The RIPE NCC Executive Board further resolves to moderate emails sent from individual subscribers who, from 30 October 2020, send emails evaluated as not in accordance with the purpose of the mailing list and the principles of the RIPE Code of Conduct. This evaluation and moderation will be conducted by the Executive Board Secretary and a RIPE NCC staff member. All emails, accepted or rejected, will be archived on the RIPE NCC website. The RIPE NCC Executive Board will revisit this resolution in December 2020.
