Dear all, this is the fifth suggestion: RIPE will create a yearly list of all services it provides to members or the general public This list will include at least: * Name of the service * Cost in time and money of maintaining and possibly extending this service * Cost in time and money of maintaining the backend needed for this service; this is to catch stuff that relies on old and brittle infra * Number of users if applicable/traceable per year * Number of queries/transactions if applicable/traceable per year * General usefulness of the service from RIPE's POV * Status of service, such as "active, supported", "deprecated", or "scheduled for decommissioning on YYYY-MM-DD" * A suggestion for the future status of the service If in doubt, RIPE will focus less on detailed interpretation and analysis and more on giving out as many hard facts and stats as possible. Interpretation will happen on the mailing lists anyway. RIPE will implement this policy in a light-weight manner that is not a drain on resources in and as of itself.
