Dear Working Group, Summer is almost over and there will soon be a RIPE meeting, and at that RIPE meeting a Local Internet Registry Working Group. Since we were extremely efficient at the last meeting we have 0 - zero - open action points, so it will be even harder for me to put together an agenda this time. This is the reason for this message. What do YOU want us to do at the next meeting? Shall we limit the WG to the registry reports or are there other matters that needs to be discussed? Lots of things are happening in our area, a proposal for an address-supporting organisation in ICANN (see http://www.icann.org/comments-mail/comment-aso/maillist.html) has been circulated among the membership and submitted to the ICANN board. Some of the discussion has taken on aso-discuss at ripe.net and yet some on comment-aso at icann.org which can be viewed at http://www.icann.org/comments-mail/comment-aso/maillist.html . But when the discussion has ended and there is consensus, the real work start, how do we appoint our representatives to the ASO, and who do we want oversee the future of the Internet, both at the ASO and on the ICANN board? Should we discuss this topic in any flavour in the working group or should we leave this for the plenary? In the ICANN process the openness of our policy-making procedures has been repeatedly questioned by external voices. Not very concrete and therefor not very constructive. Maybe we should rise above that and still discuss this. Maybe our policy-making procedures seem closed because nobody knows what they are and how they work? IANA has allocated addresses to the regional registries. What implications does this have? Should this still be a matter for the IPv6 WG only or should some aspects of IPv6 such as evolving the policy document, be included on our agenda. (Or even, do we know enough about IPv6?) Then of course there may be concrete policy issues or other topics you would like on the agenda. Feel free to air your opinions at this list or to me. I plan to circulate a draft agenda early next week, and make one or two updates before the meeting. Hans Petter Holen LIR-WG Chair.
