Some days ago, we all received a long document that looked like this;

>NOTE: the document has been received September 8, 1992.

>   RIPE should stay a technical IP coordinating body within RARE, but

I have now learned through reliable sources that the EMPB/PTT-telecom is 
planning to subcontract "IP network Consulting" for EMPB to Softlabs.

Another strange thing seems to be that the receiver was "Bruce Wallace at 
PTT telecom" I thought he was with the CPMU?

This means that the IP-comunity of Europe will probably have a zero influence 
on the network, that are supposed to serve our comunity. And that CPMU totally
ignores the skills of the Ripe comunity.

We have to pay twice, as the skills of the coumunity are not used, and we 
have to pay the consultants on our taxes/charges!

I might be wrong, if someone has better knowledge about this, please speak up.
