I just noticed the following in the ISSUES section of the recent posting
of the November ISOCNZ face-to-face:
* Who Owns Netgate? Portability of IP Addresses
Netgate is an operating name for a service of Telecom NZ. I don't think
there is any doubt that if anybody owns Netgate, Telecom NZ does :)
I think you meant NZGATE.
NZGATE no longer exists as an operational entity - I don't think that
_ownership_ of NZGATE is a useful concept.
Portability of addresses in general is a different issue (and one that is
rather clear-cut for new address allocations); however, it would certainly
benefit from wider exposure at the face-to-face as there is still much
confusion in the user community on this issue.
I think a better heading would be:
* What can be done about the legacy of NZGATE-delegated addresses
within NZ? Ongoing portability of IP addresses.
Notice I said "can" and not "should" :)
