However, RIPE isn't a treaty organization and the rules for new .INT names is pretty specific. And IANA is rather careful about following the rules. Jon Postel's directive is that any proposal needs to have very precise rules, so the first step in getting groups like RIPE authorized under .INT is to write a set of rules that will mechanically determine who is authorized. Perhaps a place to start is by qualifying any organization that has administrative or operations responsibilities directly assigned by IANA. d/ ________________________________________________________________________ Dave Crocker Brandenburg Consulting +1 408 246 8253 [email protected] 675 Spruce Drive (f) +1 408 249 6205 www.brandenburg.com Sunnyvale, CA 94086 USA
