[AusNOG] [pacnog] RIPE NCC Position On The ITU IPv6 Group

When I see Yet Another ITU Initiative (YAII tm), I just go to http://www.itu.int/spam/

Then I know, they'll make lot of noise, get everyone excited and wasting their time, get governments officials barking at the wrong tree, for the same results as above.

What did we have so far?

All of the above are less and less relevant for ITU, while the Internet Community and the industry are still tackling these problems with some results and with far less resources.

Subject: [pacnog] RIPE NCC Position On The ITU IPv6 Group

This is an FYI for those interested.  Btw, RIPE NCC is the European version of APNIC for those that don't know.

The ITU are looking at bypassing the RIR's (Ripe, APNIC, ARIN, AFRINIC, LACNIC) and becoming their own numbering authority.  Clearly this is not the desired option as the structure already exists for exactly what they want to do, but rather than regionally, they want to do it per country.... for who knows what reason.
