I feel this is wrong, it is >not part of our service agreement which is what we pay for, much the same >as the test traffic white elephant we funded for years. I am fully aware that some organisations now and then go through phases where any and all expenses are more tightly checked than in the past ;-) While the Annual Activity Plan issue has already been taken care of, there is another aspect which cannot (for the benfit of those who joined the community at a later date or who didn't follow the project in detail) be left standing without a comment: your "white elefant" claim, implying that the community funds a pet project for a minority: I have just today approved payment for the TTM Service invoice for ACOnet's testbox, amounting to 6K+ EUR. We have actually _bought_ the hardware, and we pay an _annual service_ fee. So it definitely IS a self-sufficient, _subscription based_ service offered by the NCC!
