RIPE records for .IT domain names

Please find English version at the bottom of this message.

Il 23/01/2001 Daniele Vannozzi spiegava che "dal DB di RIPE
verranno cancellati nelle prossime settimane tutti i domini registrati
nel TLD .it".

A tutt'oggi questo non  ancora successo.

IT-NIC effettivamente non manda pi update per i domini sotto il TLD .IT,
ma i vecchi dati non sono stati rimossi. La cattiva notizia  che i vecchi
record
presso RIPE sono ancora mantenuti da IT-NIC e pertanto non possono essere
cambiati.

Queries effettuate sul database di RIPE trovano ancora regolarmente entries
per i domini .IT, e non con un sistema distribuito, ma contenenti vecchi
dati.
Questo causa lo spargersi di informazioni vecchie e spesso errate riguardo
a domini registrati e/o modificati fino a dicembre 2000.

Un esempio:

$ whois -h whois.ripe.net esi.it
domain:      esi.it

Ora, non so chi debba provvedere, ma forse la via pi veloce  che IT-NIC
chieda a RIPE di cancellare questi record.

On Jan the 23rd,  2001 Daniele Vannozzi explained that "in the next weeks
all
domain names registered under the TLD .IT will be removed from  RIPE
database" (translation is mine, not Daniele's :)

To date, this dind't happen.

Actually, IT-NIC doesn't send any update for domain names under the TLD .IT
any more, but old data hasn't been removed from it. The bas news is that old
records in the RIPE db are still mnt-by:  IT-NIC, and thus cannot be
changed.

Queries from the RIPE db still routinely find entries for .IT domains, and
not
via the distributed system, but carrying old data. This causes spreading of
out-
of-date, often wrong informations, regarding domain names registered and/or
modified up to december 2000.

An example:

$ whois -h whois.ripe.net esi.it
domain:      esi.it

admin-c:     PS155

But:

Now, I don't know who's in charge of such a change, but maybe the fastest
way is that IT-NIC asks RIPE to remove such records.
