The dnsmon service might we wonderful and better than anything out there and I may even end up using it. My point is that now that there is an ncc-services list, that the RIPE NCC, whenever a new service is decided upon, that a message be sent to the ncc-services list, giving a short description of the service, the rationale for setting it up, and the estimated budget and manpower needed to run the service. This will save us all from having to monitor the 20 or so WG lists for new services being planned and then finding out about it when it is too late. >Henk -Hank
