Allocation out of 74/8 happened on 12/20/2005 and 76/8 1/19/2006. Operationally, the testing should stop prior to allocations from the block, regardless of size. I think it's a binary question, they're either in production or not, and if they are, there should be no intrusive testing.It looks like they were given real ARIN allocations for those test prefixes, so its not like those blocks are going to assigned to some random network who goes to use them and finds out there is a Cymru announcement on their space.
Good point. ARIN doesn't have a policy to release space for testing so it must be real. There's a lot of reasons why they should come out and be returned to the pool besides the whois listing which is why I made the (operational) post. Stop picking on me ras. :) I've got whole countries on me. -M< -- Martin Hannigan (c) 617-388-2663 Renesys Corporation (w) 617-395-8574 Member of the Technical Staff Network Operations firstname.lastname@example.org
