I've updated that in the GRH list, thanks for the notify.

After that I verified that it matched the rest of the list and found the
following few obscurities:

The following is odd btw:
INFN-CNAF/IT         3FFE:2300::/24 review of current inactivity
underway [17Jan03]
IFB/GB               3FFE:0E00::/24 review of current inactivity
underway [17Jan03]

Not seen in the GRT since 2003-06-13, almost two years ago, thus I guess
that these can be reclaimed. The most likely reason why both have the
same date is because some ISP started announcing all the prefixes known
to mankind at that time.


The following is quite funny now of course:
RECLAIMED             3FFE:1300::/24 RECLAIMED from BAY/US-MA [04Sep03]

As it is *still* being announced by Fibertel, to whom no contact can be
made. They are also quite apparently not reading this mailinglist.

I've CC'd both Sprint (AS6175) and ATNET (AS5424) as they seem to be
playing transit for AS10318*

Paths like these (Greece, Sprint, South America, Austria) don't seem to
make much sense anyway:

3ffe:2d00::/24 2001:4f8:1::7  3557 6939 6939 5424 10318 6175 5408

Or ATNET's 6bone prefix:
3ffe:8060::/28 2001:838:0:ffff::1  12871 24587 6453 10566 6175 10318 5424

That is Austria -> South America -> Sprint -> Canada -> Netherlands

And folks, please read:

That avoids funny paths like the above. And there is *enough*
connectivity in Europe for ATNET if they need it, just ask.

[email protected] added because that is what
http://www.sixxs.net/tools/whois/?3ffe:8060::/28 mentions to do for
complaints and this is a complaint about them announcing a reclaimed
prefix and playing transit for a bogus ASN including fulltable swapping.
And I am putting it nicely, it is Valentine's day afterall ;)
