All, I support the thought that LIRs should be able to get up to a /29 as an initial allocation with no documentation required. However, that doesn't mean I support the policy proposal in its current form. Here's why. In the current policy text, it's very clear cut that unless you provide documentation (which means you've thought about how to deploy), you get a /32. I would not want a situation where people get a /29 without thinking, making a mess of it and then come back. So you could get a /29 if you asked for it specifically, otherwise you get a /32. So I would propose the following: Organisations that meet the initial allocation criteria are eligible to receive an initial allocation of /32. For initial allocations up to /29 no additional documentation is necessary. Organisations may qualify for an initial allocation greater than /29 by submitting documentation that reasonably justifies the request. If so, the allocation size will be based on the number of existing users and the extent of the organisation's infrastructure. --snip-- And, of course, using up your /29 in one go means no additional adjacent reserved address space on the RIPE NCC books, but that's an implementation issue :) Best Remco van Mook Director of Interconnection, Europe remco.vanmook at eu.equinix.com +31 61 135 6365 MOB EQUINIX 51-53 Great Marlborough Street London, W1F 7JT, United Kingdom On 21-10-11 12:44, "Emilio Madaio" <emadaio at ripe.net> wrote: > >Dear Colleagues, > >A new RIPE Policy Proposal has been made and is now available for >discussion. > >You can find the full proposal at: > > www.ripe.net/ripe/policies/proposals/2011-04 > >We encourage you to review this proposal and send your comments to ><address-policy-wg at ripe.net> before 18 November 2011. > >Regards > >Emilio Madaio >Policy Development Officer >RIPE NCC > > This email is from Equinix Europe Limited or one of its associated/subsidiary companies.
