The goal is "Source of truth" for any peer to know information at the
Exchange points as well as peering coordinator information. I think it is
a great tool for the peering community and definitely useful. Cons: Will
it be the next RADB? There needs to be a sustainable community to keep it
running since it is a volunteer effort.
