Working Groups

RIPE Working Groups are composed of community members working together to discuss specific topics that are within the scope of the RIPE community.

Each working group has a charter and a number of goals. A working group typically exists as long as there is sufficient interest in discussing the topic for which it was set up. The outcome of a working group can be sharing knowledge, technical solutions, best practices or policy proposals.

Each working group is chaired by two or three members of the community. The responsibility of the chairs is to moderate discussions and declare whether consensus is reached on a policy proposal.

Each working group has a dedicated mailing list which is open to anybody. Most of the working group’s activity is done via the mailing list, but working group sessions also take place at each RIPE Meeting.

RIPE Forum

The RIPE Forum is an additional way to participate in RIPE community mailing list discussions using a web-based interface rather than an email client.
