Frank, I fear we are rapidly entering into, or have already entered into, unproductive territory, but anyway... "Dipl-Inform.

Then by all means write a proposal, please. From a personal point of view, I cannot see the usefulness of creating another abuse address, as it still has to be pointed at a real address and something still needs to be done with it, the latter two are the bigger problem. And if people were mailing an @ripe.net address, it would seem to shift the responsibility for enforcement, and the blame for breach, onto the NCC? >> As the agenda will, in no small part, feature presentations and >> discussions, it is difficult to proceed as you're suggesting, however >> consensus is not something that is reached purely at meetings.

There are certain things that it's possible to give feedback on, other things it's more difficult to give feedback on, especially presentations which will only be finished shortly before the WG meeting. I will, as I promised, be publishing a draft agenda for the meeting before the end of this week and we can see what comes from that. >> discussion, it was decided in Lisbon to close that item as no discussion > > Nobody talked about the IRT object before the meeting took place > and thats very sad, because I guess a lot of people would > vote for them. There was extensive discussion both on the mailing list this group (as anti-spam) and DB (as the proposal was formally raised there), so that's worth checking out. However there was no consensus. And remember, it's not a voting situation. >> No, this is a oft-stated aim of the NCC and a fair chunk of the >> community.

The reality of human social interaction is that we're still better at doing things when we're face to face with each other for short periods of time. There is no intent to cut people out, remote participation is now much easier, no hard decisions are made (consensus is not declared purely based on a meeting) and minutes are posted. >>> Well, maybe there will be more ideas coming ... >> >> For agenda items? > > Sure, did anybody ever asked for them ? > Im maybe old and forget a lot, but quickly flicked > through the last mails from the list and did not find anything like > "call for agenda items". Really? I sent two mails, one on the 10th of March, one on the 31st. I've received a couple of offers of talks, they will be happening at the meeting. I also received a suggestion of something to look at, so I did. :) Generally a call for items goes out two months before a meeting, so yes. Please note, these two mails were the latest two on the list before Claus' mail on the 6th. > There is a lot to discuss. > - first I would call for agenda items > - then I would call for anti-spam-system hosted by RIPE > > Then we should talk in details about all this to finally find the best > ideas and solution and these should be talked about at the meetings. > I bet that lots of people will attend meetings, when their ideas > will find there way to meetings ... Their ideas will find their way to meetings, please stop claiming otherwise without any evidence to support that. Agenda items have always been called for. So far very few concrete ideas have been put forth. The notion you raised of an abuse address requires a lot more fleshing out before it could become a proposal and be properly discussed. A variety of questions spring to mind for me, some of which I've outlined above. However without more detail, there will not be proper discussion. Regards, Brian.
