Dear all, we are going to start with the procedure to modify all the dates in the changed fields of database objects that were using only two figures for the year. After the modifications, the year part of the date will contain 4 digits. Changed fields which currently do not have a date will not be changed (*) This is taking place according to the action points agreed on the Vienna RIPE meeting. The process will be carried over the next few days due to the time it takes to re-index some of the bigger files. Regards, Joao Damas DB Group RIPE NCC (*) These objects will not be updatable by the user unless a date is included at update time or the only changed field without a date is the last one, in which case the database automatically fills in the date at which the update takes place.
