New Internet Routing Statistics

So sprint will coperate at least to the extent that MCI, ANS, and UUNET
are already doing so?

If Craig had previously pointed out that he would like to
have gotten routes from us that would not be propagated
unless specifically requested by us, then I don't think it
would have been too difficult to have done the two line
adjustment to our already-existing peerings with the two
RSes at MAE-EAST in order for us to have shown up on the
hallowed list in his message today.

Of course, that would have also deprived you of a front-page
Cook Report scandal, and several messages here on the NANOG

So, think of this as job creation at work, maybe.

I'd think that is good news. Do you have any kind of time line, Sean?
June 1? July 1?

Well, I went digging, and couldn't find any relevant email
on the first pass. Perhaps such a message will find its way
to the appropriate people (maybe for the second time, if we
lost things on this end), so we know what routing
information is wanted and where and when, and what exactly
it will be used for.

I see no difficulty with announcing routes to the RA
specifically for gathering the sorts of statistics they have
been thinking about. Indeed, I believe that I have made
this clear in public places a number of times in the past.

We now return you to the regularly scheduled making
of mountains out of mole-hills.
