First, thank you for testing the release candidate!

I had a quick look at our own graphs. Currently they show
62,506 v. 62,589 VRPs for the APNIC region (These include duplicates;
there seem to be about 80 duplicates). This difference has been 83 VRPs
ever since I updated one server to the release candidate on Friday.

It seems correct, too: looking at the log, there are three CAs in the
CNNIC repository that have ROAs rejected which would have been dropped
fully under the 0.8.1 rules. These three CAs produce 83 VRPs in the
0.8.2 data set.

I’m not sure where your much lower number for 0.8.1 comes from. If you
still have the log, perhaps you can have a look? Maybe some updates
failed temporarily?
