Hello,

This draft policy will be discussed next week at the nanog PPC, in
addition we welcome feedback on this draft on PPML.  Specifically if you
could comment on the following two points it would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Andrew


Does the community support raising the minimum requirement for IXPs from
2 to 3?


Does the community believe that additional clarity is needed to define
if an IXP uses the end-user or ISP fee schedule?
