I am not asking about the annual charge for independent resources but the fact that they are to be used to calculate the billing score for members. The 2011 billing scheme states: "To determine a billing category, a score is calculated based on Aggregatable Internet number resources made to a member over time." It specifically refers to PA resources, so including end-user Independent resources is a *fundamental* change. The annual charge, of course, applies *as well*, so these resources are charges, in fact, twice. I have already accepted that IRs assigned *to the LIR* should be included to prevent a LIR from using PI as "cheap PA", what I would like to know, still, is how including *end-user assigned* IR is justified. regards, Sascha Luck ---- If you don't want to receive emails from the RIPE NCC members-discuss mailing list, please log in to your LIR Portal account and go to the general page: https://lirportal.ripe.net/general/view Click on "Edit my LIR details", under "Subscribed Mailing Lists".
