Hi Philip, folks,

I did actually send this to NANOG, unfortuantely I didn't realise I wasn't
on the nanog-post list:( Really should read the wevbsite when I sign up
for these things.

For that stupidity my apologies.

If anyone has other suggestions besides the ripe lists and nanog of where
we should post such updates please let me know off list <crain () icann org>.

Despite all the rhetoric about ICANN being a secret and evil club this is
one bit of info we really meant to get out there. (Honest:)

John

TBH, a new /7 or /8, whatever, going in to production anywhere on the 
planet should be announced to the regional operators lists (NANOG, APOPS, 
EOF and AfNOG). Hopefully the registry folks can add that little chore to 
the long list of other things they have to think of...

Or maybe IANA could widen the announcement next time? This was the original 
from John:

While I could agree that its not a problem till someone tries to use it,
I point out that ARIN does make an announcement when they are going
to start issuing from a new IANA block.

And I'll counter-point out that ARIN is notifying relevant groups in its
Region.  Why would you expect the RIPE NCC to formally notify a group
(nanog) that is not in its region (Europe) ?

To keep this operational, this lists the various /8s and who is
(nominally) in charge of 'em; it may be of interest to people who haven't
reviewed their filters in ages:

        http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space

We, The Net Operators, should have this information so that we can update
our filters, should we see fit to, and thus cause as little negative impact
as possible.
