Openness about Policy Violations
2013-01 Anti-Abuse Working Group November 2013

Summary: The RIPE NCC is the membership organisation that manages the shared public resources of IP addresses and Autonomous System Numbers in its service region. This proposal makes complaints about delegated resources more visible. It also specifies a separate list that documents all reclaimed resources. The goals are to provide more insight into the good stewardship of the RIPE NCC and to encourage assistance in stopping abuse of these shared public resources. This proposal explicitly does not set or change any policies about assignment, allocation or revocation of these resources.

Reason for withdrawal: After considering the objections raised when 2013-01 was first proposed, combined with the very low level of subsequent feedback, the proposers are of the opinion that consensus on this proposal is not likely to be reached. As a consequence, the proposers decided to withdraw the proposal.

2012-10 Address Policy Working Group May 2013

Summary: This proposal aims to clarify the approved text of proposal 2011-04 on the extensions of IPv6 allocations to ensure that any /32 may be extended to /29, without having to restrict to one extension on a per-LIR-total-summary basis.

Modification of The Time Limits For Temporary Internet Assignments
2012-09 Address Policy Working Group April 2013
Summary: Practical experience has indicated that the time limits used in ripe-526 are too short for certain types of events.  This policy proposal recommends changing these time limits to allow more flexibility for End Users of temporary Internet number assignments.  The excess time limits for the various assignment purposes are also aligned to be the same.
