Yups, smells like a small but very dangerous typo.

>From a netcitizen's perpesctive and as being involved in operating a part
of the internet, I'm starting to dislike this whole experiment more and
more. I understand, as people already commented, the internet in fact is
one big experiment, but this is getting out-of-hand.

Can the people responsible for this please reconsider and put things on
hold until certain conditions are met:

Publish a detailed workplan including AS-es used, windows and risk
analysis to the various mailinglists.

A reasonable time between annoucements and the experiment instead of 24

Some assurance that input files are checked for typos.

Take another look wether it is smart to use 'production' AS-es for it,
such as the RIS or meeting AS numbers, instead of a seperate set. I think
people are going to get real unhappy if somewhere in October they found
out the meeting network is blocked at various places.

Just my 2 cents,
