Thanks for this, Hisham! I especially liked that OKR table, linking the goals to the programme objectives.

Great initiative @Alun!

• On The RIPE Chair Team Reports - Planning for 2022 by Mirjam Kühne

Thank you for mentioning sustainability Mirjam! Indeed, I'd love to see a more formal way to address that topic within the RIPE community.

• On A Matter of Principle by Chris Buckridge

Thanks for this Chris! Running the risk of sounding like a broken record, I'd love to see the RIPE community pushing for sustainability principles as well, i.e., within software or IT operations.

• On NOGs on NOGs by Alun Davies

Thanks for this write-up Alun! I just joined the DisNOG – such a good idea. Also, if it's helpful to you and @Vesna, over the years I've worked to update the Wiki entry on NOGs: Maybe it'll be helpful as well! Lastly, one thing that could help is if there was a better understanding of which NOG corresponds to which place. Sometimes it's obvious like UKNOF, but not always.

“Congratulations to the new RIPE Labs layout! Looks fresh and modern.”

Couldn't agree more!
