The RADB has my entry as follows:

mntner:      MAINT-AS378
descr:       ILAN
admin-c:     Hank Nussbacher
tech-c:      Hank Nussbacher
upd-to:      [email protected]

The RIPE DB has my entry as follows:

mntner:    AS378-MNT
descr:     ILAN
upd-to:    [email protected]
mnt-nfy:   [email protected]
auth:      CRYPT-PW somecryptstring
mnt-by:    AS378-MNT
admin-c:   Hank Nussbacher
tech-c:    Hank Nussbacher
changed:   [email protected] 941122
source:    RIPE

I would assume that everyone in Europe has updated their mntner
object and customized as they please.  Now we have to do it again?
Couldn't the RADB just copy all the mntner objects as listed in RIPE?
