Dear working group, In answer to your question, let me ask the working group in return to take a decision by the end of the week. > As a follow up: Is "last-modified:" going to be updated? If the working group prefers, we will update "last-modified:". We did not intend to do so because this is a bulk change and not a *user* initiated change. This was always about > Will the "your objects got changed" mail be generated? Initially the intention was that we wouldn't because the clean-up affects 93k objects, out of which 49k have a 'notify'. This can result in too many support questions, especially in this busy time just before the RIPE Meeting. That said, we re-evaluated and we can send notifications, if we postpone the clean-up to a more quiet time. This implies that "descr:" remains maintained by RIPE NCC until then. So, working group, please decide between the following: a) Clean-up this Tuesday 17 May, with general announcement only b) Clean-up on Thursday 2 June, with notifications, RS keeps enforcing "descr:" until then. If option a is preferred we need to know this by Friday afternoon latest, so that we can prepare. Kind regards, Tim Bruijnzeels Assistant Manager Software Engineering RIPE NCC
