Hi Milton,

In particular, this group is chartered to comment on what the RIR
proposals are, as follows:

That means we at least need to be aware of what is going on.  For
another thing, it may be possible for us to learn from friends from the
other communities.  On the other hand, perhaps it is better to express
concerns about RIR processes directly to the RIR leaders and
communities.  I found out about that web page because APNIC has in fact
created a mailing list to discuss the matter.

Here's the link:

RIPE has a similar link:
AFRINIC is here:
I think this one is LACNIC's:

I can't find a good one for ARIN, but since you're on the AC, maybe you
can tell me.

While it's true that we shouldn’t be spending much bandwidth here discussing what the RIRs should do, I think some obvious failings and distortions in their process should be of great concern to everyone concerned with the transition, just for the same reason that Eliot sent the first message.
