[ARIN-consult] Call for Community Consultation - Retiring ARIN E-mail Templates

+1

Scott's comments succinctly sum up what I wanted to say..  Email
templates are integrated into our IP Management system.  Until ARIN
provides a programmatic interface for upating whois, we require the
reallocate, reassign and netmod email templates to be available.

I don't have a problem with migrating some of the other templates to the
website, such as pocmod and asnmod.

My other request would be that when you get there, provide a way to turn
off email submissions for all of your resources.  This way, if you keep
the email templates around, admins have a way of saying 'Please don't
accept email submissions for this ORG anymore'

ARIN E-mail Templates

We primarily use the e-mail templates as an API to interface with our IP

management system.  It's important that such automated functionality 
remain available, rather than requiring transactions to go through a 
website designed for humans.

Once all of the templates' functionality is available via an API and 
website interfaces, it may be reasonable to deprecate and eventually 
retire the e-mail templates.  However, such a change needs to be 
communicated well in advance, to give everyone time to update their own 
systems to interact with the new API, and do appropriate testing, etc.
