Quarterly Planning

We have three objectives in publishing our quarterly planning:

  1. We want to be transparent about the work we are doing
  2. We want your input on that work and our planning, and we want to document that input, and let you know if and when we can add your suggestions to our planning
  3. We want an open dialogue with members and the community on developments around the RIPE Database

We launched this initiative in Q4 2021, and we are open to improving what we publish here and how we do that. So let us know if there are ways we can better present our plans.

We will update this page as our activities progress and continue to share updates on RIPE Labs, on the RIPE Database Working Group (WG) mailing list and at RIPE Meetings and other events.

Community Input on Planning

We want the community to contribute to our plans and suggest additional work items. The Database Working Group (WG) employs a process called Numbered Work Items (NWIs) that allows anyone to suggest work the RIPE NCC should carry out to improve the RIPE Database. A lot of work takes place each quarter to investigate the feasibility of NWIs and plan for their implementation.

When an NWI is agreed and the RIPE NCC will schedule related work, it will be added to our quarterly planning.

Please share your comments with us or post them on the Database Working Group (WG) mailing list. And we will be monitoring all the other channels where people talk about the RIPE Database.

We will be adding your feedback on this page as we progress with our plans.
