At the last IETF meeting in July, it was agreed that we would update the
NIR report one more time prior to submitting it as an RFC. The report will
also appear as a RARE Technical Report in (I hope) printed form.

Both CNIDR and InterNIC staff volunteered to host the report on-line, in
such a way that individual contributors could update their sections when
appropriate - without having to wait for the full update. Full updates
would then only be made once per year.

While I was away in Eastern Europe, Barbara Thomas kindly sent out the
individual sections of the report to the various contributors for updating.
(I had warned you in advance.) Unfortunately we are still missing quite a
few, and we'll be updating the report tomorrow (Wed.)

** Please let us have updates *now*. If you feel nothing has changed since
you last updated the information on your NIR tool or group - please let us
know. **

Please help with this effort to get this report out the door and submitted
as a *final* draft RFC so that the NIR group can move on to other things. I
know updating templates is tedious (I have to do two too!) - but if you
send me your updates (or "null" updates) now - I won't have to nag you for 
another year!

Here's the list of updates received so far - followed by Barbara's message.

 Hello

 Here is your section of the NIR Report.  Could you please return the

 Thanks for your help.

 Barbara
