Presumably, >RIPE will provide a sample allocation request form, any idea when? The policy will be implemented soon. However, we need to complete some updates to some internal software, first. We also need to introduce a new status attribute value into the database. With regards to request forms: the policy does not require LIRs to send requests to the RIPE NCC. Instead, the maximum sub-allocation size is linked to an LIR's Assignment Window. >Any ideas on how to do this without a sub-allocation? Any way for our >uplink to "reserve" a /20, which would then origin from our AS, and then >assign chunks of it to us as we go along, maybe? Our uplink's AW is >/24, and they don't have any room within their current allocations to >give us a /20, so they would have to request this specifically from >RIPE. If the upstream LIR does not have sufficient address space to make an assignment (or sub-allocation) then they can request an additional allocation.
