The Routing Policy System Working Group intends to provide
standardization of protocols and recommended practices neccesary to
support interoperability of the Internet Routing Registry (IRR). The IRR
has been in use since 1995 based initially on the RIPE-181 policy

The activities of the RPS Working Group shall include (1) defining a
language, referred to as Routing Policy Specification Language(RPSL),for
describing routing policy constraints, (2) defining a simple and robust
distributed registry model for publishing routing policy constraints,
and (3) providing a forum for the discussion of tools for analysing
registered policy constraints, for checking global consistency, for
generating router configurations, and for diagnosing operational routing
