Dear Colleagues, This is a small report on an action item that is upon us. Action 48.X [Olaf Kolkman] Send to the mailinglist [a pointer to] the current list of checks applied to IN-ADDR.ARPA zones before reverse delegation is activated or updated. Initiate review of those checks and propose, if necessary, updates and/or additional tests. The reverse delegation "HOWTO"  refers to a web page that can perform the delegation checks that our database update engine performs. That web-based delegation checker comes with an explanation of the most important checks. We think that for the purpose of further discussion of the delegation checks the explanation in  is sufficient. However because of a library version mismatch the documentation in  may sometimes differ from what is actually verified during WHOIS Database updates. We will be working on updating the web based delegation checker to use the same back-end library and during that process update and audit the documentation. If you have any question regarding details we'll be happy to answer them. Kind regards, Olaf M.
