While I have some healthy skepticism against some RIPE NCC projects, and some of the ways they came to be, I think it's also fair to point out that the activities of the RIPE NCC is presented in the RIPE NCC activity plan, and that they as of the last one actually does a better job of breaking up costs in it. If you, me or anyone else have concerns or opinions on it, the right thing is to post comments on it when it is presented to members every year. Unfortunately the posting if normally comes with a very quiet mailing list. What we should all be doing during the year though is to compare activities to it and provide feedback on how well (or not) we think it's executed. That is partly why the NCC Services WG was created once upon a time, and we have (but rarely) had feedback in there on the performance of the activities of the NCC. This mailinglist is of course also a good channel, but I think we need to accept that the NCC does what is in the activity plan approved by it's members....
