A reminder for users of the RADB database service: at 12:00:00 a.m. EDT on
January 1, 2000, the transition to the Routing Policy Specification
Language (RPSL) database will be complete.  After January 1, RIPE-181
object submissions will no longer be accepted. 

RIPE-181 submissions made between now and 1/1/2000 will continue to be
visible on as RIPE-181 objects converted to RPSL.

tools to explicitly query and send RIPE-181
submissions to
