Yes. But I’m still not seeing where 2020 comes in. All the above is saying is that the 2010 KSK was in a position to be rolled after 2015.

The discussion on this mailing list has been

What we’re looking for is some direction from the community on how to determine an "agreed understanding of when the rollover has affected operational stability beyond a reasonable boundary”.

Sorry, where are you getting your numbers?

If so, has there been any discussion about the data?

To be clear, we’re now seeing about 8% of the RFC 8145-reporting resolvers (which is, of course, a subset of all validating resolvers) indicating they’re configured for only KSK-2010. The issue is that we have no good idea of figuring out how many end users that percentage is representing and what the implications of breaking resolution for those end users will be.
