I just posted the following to the Data Ownership Policy Document, based
on discussion in today's conf. Feedback welcome.
Facilities public listing decision process:
Networks and IXPs decide for themselves whether they wish to be listed at
a facility, but a facility can control whether a listing by a network/IXP
is public. A facility is not able to list a network/IXP as being present
at a facility unless the network/IXP has taken action for this to happen.
Some facilities are willing to have networks and IXPs self-describe
themselves as being present at a facility, while other facilities prefer
prior approval in advance of any listing. Thus we recommend a facility
flag (ex: fFacilityPriorApproval, default FALSE) that determines whether
PeeringDB allows a network/IXP to be visible as being at a facility
without affirmative agreement from a facility.
[Has network/IXP listed themselves at the facility?] -> No -> [No listing occurs.]
[fFacilityPriorApproval] -> FALSE -> [Listing occurs, but may later be disabled by facility.]
[Listing does not occur and facility is notified of need for review such as by email and/or indication on facility page.]
Facility review, either as a reaction to notification or just by browsing
their facility page:
[Does facility approve of listing?] -> Yes -> [Listing occurs if fFacilityPriorApproval is FALSE or simply continues if fFacilityPriorApproval is TRUE.]
[Listing does not occur and involved network/IXP is notified via email and/or indication on object page.]
