Mailing Lists and Consultations

The RIPE NCC manages several mailing lists that are open to RIPE NCC members or the RIPE community. There are also periods when either the RIPE NCC, the RIPE Chair Team or others in the community need to consult with members or the RIPE Community on important topics. These consultations are also carried out on the mailing lists and details are provided below.

RIPE Community Mailing Lists

The RIPE community has several public mailing lists, mostly related to the activities of RIPE Working Groups. These lists are maintained by the RIPE NCC.

See the full list of RIPE Community Mailing Lists.

RIPE NCC Specific Mailing Lists

Various mailing lists cover topics related to the activities of the RIPE NCC. Some lists are related to RIPE NCC membership, other lists are dedicated to particular projects.

See the full list of RIPE NCC Specific Mailing Lists.

When there is a call for input from RIPE NCC members or the RIPE community, all relevant details including the topic, the original request for input the place where discussions are taking place and the period during which input can be given are listed on the Consultations page.
