Hello all, following up on our last call for comments on the RPSL transition for the RIPE database, we did not receive any mails or information which may have delayed the transition. In contrast, we received a set of supportive mails. Accordingly, the transition to RPSL will now follow the outlined dates: o 23-Apr-2001: switching to the RPSL database *** now set *** - All objects are automatically converted to RPSL format - Queries return RPSL only - Mirroring follows new format and rules at whois.ripe.net, port 4444 - RPSL formatted updates can be submitted to auto-rpsl at ripe.net - RIPE-181 updates are still accepted at auto-dbm at ripe.net, but are autmatically converted to RPSL - RFC2725 (Routing Policy Security System) rules apply throughout o 14-May-2001: exchanging mail addresses for submitting RIPE181 and RPSL-formatted updates - auto-dbm at ripe.net only accepts RPSL updates - RIPE-181 updates are still possible but now go to auto-181 at ripe.net and are automatically converted to RPSL (again, RFC2725 rules apply here as well) o 15-Oct-2001: RIPE-181 updates are no longer accepted For further reading, please refer to the migration web page http://www.ripe.net/rpsl We will continue to update you prior to the dates detailed above. Thanks - the RIPE NCC and the chairmen of Routing: Joachim Schmitz DB: Wilfried Woeber LIR: Hans Peter Holen
