    This sucks. For a while I’ve been wanting to apply to become a RIPE member and receive a /22 allocation that I wanted to use to bootstrap a community mesh network in my area. You snooze you lose.

      Why not use IPv6 for this application? Sounds ideal.

        Dual stacks aren’t going away any time soon, either you do that, or some CGNAT 6-to-4 stuff on the network edge, and you’ll need at least some IPv4 allocation

        Yup… it went really fast the last couple of months… I was just in time, was also thinking about it for a long time, but finally registered 6 months ago. My /22 and /29 (v6) are live as we speak :)
