I don't need to pull it continuously. It can even be limited to one connection a day, although again, I see no reason for such limitations. I would only like a local mirror that I can hammer however frequently I wish, that would be relatively up-to-date. I can pull the snapshot once a day, restart irrd and be done with it, but...that's just wrong :) > Although I'd expect that stuff to be available to members without > extra pay - at least one host per member. I would expect it to be available to everyone interested that uses BGP. Correct and automated filtering of routing between ASes should be encouraged in every possible way, and abstract pricing that doesn't have any basis in real world isn't encouraging at all. --Pawel.
