No it hasn't been canned. It was approved by the membership (by a fairly narrow margin) at the last GM. >> >> 427,000 on "outreach" - it's a RIR - what advertising does it need to >> do ? It's not advertising. RIPE NCC doesn't advertise. But it does do a lot of work (as do the other RIRs) on explaining to Govts and other bodies that the internet works quite well as it does and that the whole thing shouldn't be handed over to the ITU (which is a serious threat, although less serious than it was, largely due to the work that RIPE et al have been doing). This is what is meant by "outreach". >> >> 989,000 on measurement - presumably the usb "dongles" project - why >> exactly >> are we wasting members money on this ? Because the members seem to want it. If the members come out in large numbers and tell them not to do it then it will stop. >> >> Simply junking those items and you've saved nearly 15% for a start > > > agreed 100% However, note that although the budget has increased by 7%, the spending per member (adjusted by the rate of inflation) has actually decreased, as the number of members has risen.
