[consult] Call for Consultation: ARIN WHOIS Directory Services

ARIN received a suggestion to allow CIDR style queries to the ARIN WHOIS
directory service. In addition to this enhancement, ARIN would like to
explore other possible modifications that the community desires. ARIN
requests that you provide specific feedback as to what additional WHOIS
enhancements would benefit you and why they are needed.

Discussion on this list will close at noon ET 27 July. A poll on the 
topic will be conducted beginning Tuesday, 31 July. Only subscribers on 
the consult at arin.net list when the poll opens will be eligible to 
participate. Poll results will be publicly available and will be used by 
the ARIN President to help determine what course of action, if any, ARIN 
should take regarding the subject.

The ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process documentation is available at:

We welcome community-wide participation.  Please address any process
questions to info at arin.net.
