af-ix -- [PRIVATE] African IXP Operators only


About af-ix
English (USA)

The Af-IX list is a list for Internet Exchange Point operators in Africa. This is a PRIVATE list, where operators are able to speak freely about operations, plans, problems and solutions for their IX. Consequently, subscription is limited to operators of operational IXPs, and is limited to a maximum of three participants per IX. While the list is unmoderated, subscription is vetted.

List subscribers implicitly accept that on-list discussions should never be quoted off-list without the express permission of the original poster.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the af-ix Archives. (The current archive is only available to the list members.)
