I think this is to be welcomed. As I mentioned at RIPE 64 I cannot argue with the basic idea of shutting down TTM, but revised timelines would seem to be an excellent idea given the feedback and the questions raised after the last announcement. > As presented during the MAT Working Group and RIPE NCC Services Working > Group sessions at RIPE 64, we plan to implement RIPE Atlas Anchors and > to migrate DNSMON functionality to RIPE Atlas.

While I'm not a DNSMON user myself, I think this was one of the biggest issues with the previous plan. > We will give you more details about transition in early September and > look forward to discussing our proposed plans with you at RIPE 65 in > Amsterdam. Indeed, I think that a proposed plan and discussion is greatly to be preferred over the previous fait accompli. HEAnet are very happy to continue to be a TTM host until such times as the alternative is in place and the project is shut down in an agreed and structured manner. Thanks, Brian.
