Somehow it appears to me that all this discussion comes up because of DANTE's
difficult role of being financed mostly by academic network organiz
ations (="neutral"?) however DANTE being a competitive service provider.
My impression is that the role of providing neutral ground for organizations
like CERTs should/can be taken over by federations like EurOpen for Europe and
the respective national groups like EurOpen.SE (Sweden), GUUG (Germany), NLUUG
(The Netherlands) & UKUUG (United Kingdom) and the others. More info about
EurOpen and the others can be found e.g. at
