We (SAFNOG) are working on providing tutorials during the upcoming
meeting in Dar Es Salaam, next month. We hope it carries the momentum on
to other conferences.

Would be helpful for someone at AFRINIC to jump in and comment.

That said, while the toolset needs more work, there is sufficient
incentive for folk to get their objects registered in the AFRINIC IRR,
or face potential routing partition from within the larger global
provider community.

I know a number of operators in Africa use RADB, but I also know a
number that aren't willing to pay for it.
