It had been shown clearly enough during the ongoing discussion that argumentation in RIPE-167 is weak enough even for Russia and merely inappropriate for CIS. If you want to use constructive approach then IMHO it could be done like this: 1. The process of creating the new RIR should be suspended since it's not obvious what will be created and why. 2. Another document should be issued with much more solid motivation (if you have it) and the document should clearly state how the intended process of transition would work, what region will be served, etc. 3. The new document should be discussed then. If all you've said during this discussion w.r.t. your intentions holds true, then you should clearly see this approach as advantegeous. > > How about my proposal of creating a ripe-167+ document, > > reviewed, revised, more solid and with more representative > > authorship? > > Yes, I like it.

First we create some formal organization and then let it work out, what it should do, what territory it serves,... Correct? A very nice thing and waaay professional... Oh, by the way, regarding Moscow meeting. The document adopted there indicates the whole FSU territory as the region served by RIR. It disregards what you've called the "consolidated opinion" of Ukrainian ISPs. Will your workgroup continue to disregard other's opinions? Then it's official status may result in many problems. > group which is open to all interested parties.

The discussion > that we participate in can last till infinity. The discussion surely _will_ continue to infinity if you do not have well-motivated, well-argumented proposals with clearly stated purpose and with support from the majority of LIRs situated in every country/territory you want to serve. If you cannot get support - do not include the territory. If your motivation is not accepted by the community you want to serve - you have wrong motivation. Would you like to start _practical_ work without clear understanding of the tasks you want to carry out, without clear understanding of whom do you serve and what are advantages of being served by you? If so, then the professional level of the new RIR (or RIPE NCC Office in Moscow for that matter) would seem to be... low. > And you should take into consideration that the office works _de facto_ > the last 1,5 years, you know about it. I have to do something with the Then what is wrong with it working de facto another half a year without the official status? And to finally make all the others understand your position, goals and intentions, to formalize the transition process and procedures, to ... Well, you probably got the idea. > community that already gets service through RosNIIROS, either to stop it > immediately (quality of service is falling due to unregulated scheme, > both financial and organizational) or to move forward. So, in a nutshell, you want to say the following: "I am serving some 50 LIRs now for free. I want to get money for my service. Currently my service is bad but as you pay me money, it will become more appropriate. Take my word for it. Now, since I want to establish the RIR, I need to indicate the region. I'm serving several LIRs from abroad Russia, so let the region be FSU. And no, I do not have good arguments for why the RIR should be created except we need money badly to increase the level of service. But see guys - I'm honest! Take my vows for it!"
