Seeing as we are meeting this Thursday in Vancouver, and it was 
suggested that this topic be taken up in October, would like to know how 
best to bring this topic up during the meeting... While the issue in 
this email (bad rwhois server) seems to have been fixed, albeit now they 
have no 'rwhois' server listed :( the general issue of making progress 
reports visible to the public (tickets) remains valid..

Also, are there any discussions tabled regarding large CDN networks and 
It is a shame that companies like Amazon don't provide SWIP or rwhois 
when it is obvious that parts of their networks serve different 
purposes, and should have different POC to address issues with.



Our team has posted several cases following the prescribed procedures, 
and it would be helpful if ARIN would make tickets related to this 
publicly available, so the both the submitter, and the public have a 
transparent way to see that these types of issues are followed up on, or 
that some process is in place.

Otherwise, the public will not continue to assist ARIN to help clean up 
this data.

For instance:

We are seeing more and more cases of references to 'rwhois' servers that 
have fallen off line, got broken, forgotten or simply do not exist.

Those records of course should be updated.. (More importantly, the 
services should be available)

Are there any initiatives to make inaccuracy reports more transparent?
This would help greatly in helping ARIN deal with this issue.
