This is good news and thank you to all involved.  
For the record, (and I have said this before) the IANA staff were VERY helpful
in developing and agreeing to the SLE - it is just essential that we have
community based SLE in place and in operation at (or before) the date of any

My issue was (see the attached diagram) that the CRISP (numbers community) have
their new SLA being tested from January and I would like the naming community to
be treated equally with our numbering community colleagues ... hence January 1st.

It seems to be taking longer to update the RZMS than it did to write it in the
first place.  

It would be great to see the RZMS audit trail update deployed on the test system
asap, with the data capture/extraction tools being written Oct and Nov.

You are responsible for this service and it is up to you, I am just trying to
get this job finished efficiently so all of the paperwork can be completed well
before any transition date.

IANA is not a particularly active service and will a 3 month window generate
sufficient data?  

If we were able to start testing in Jan or early Feb it would provide more data
or enable the SLE to be finalized sooner.
 By Starting in April and collecting data for say 3 months pushes us to July and
IANA does not see that much activity I fear that more time may be needed for
determining the thresholds.

If we can start asap it will enable us to be confident of having fulfilment of
the SLE in good time.... and having a community accountability mechanism for
IANA service.
