Maybe someone can > point me out? :-) The RIPE NCC Activity plan for 2003 makes reference to the algorithm used to determine the size of a LIR. This is the paragraph 4.1. of RIPE document ripe-146 that you can find at: ftp://ftp.ripe.net/ripe/docs/ripe-146.txt or ftp://ftp.ripe.net/ripe/docs/ripe-146.ps This algorithm is used to determine the LIR sizes since 1997, if I am correct. I hope this helps. Best regards, Janos PS: The algorithm tries to take into account the address space already allocated to the LIR, weighted with the age of the allocation. The rationale of this weighting is that the NCC hostmasters have less work with older allocations. This is based on the NCC's experience, as far as I know. > Andrius >
