[ppml] Revised Proposal -- Eliminate Lame Server Policy
Based on discussions with the AC Shepherds and input received on the
mailing list, I am revising my Lame Server proposal.
1. Policy Proposal Name: Deprecate Lame Server Policy
a. name: Owen DeLong
b. email: owen at delong.com
c. telephone: 408-921-6984
d. organization: JITTR Networks
3. Proposal Version: 2.0
4. Submission Date: 11 September, 2007
5. Proposal type: modify
new, modify, or delete.
6. Policy term: permanent
temporary, permanent, or renewable.
7. Policy statement:
Replace Section 7 of the NRPM in it's entirety with the
7. Staff action to improve ARIN public database accuracy and
7.1 ARIN staff shall take reasonable and practicable means to
ensure and improve the accuracy of all ARIN public
databases, including, but, not limited to WHOIS,
delegations of the in-addr.arpa zone, and, delegations
of the ip6.arpa zone.
Recent PPML discussion has called attention to the
fact that lame DNS delegations are more an operational
issue than one of policy. As such, the existing lame
delegation policy should be removed from the NRPM
to remove the resultant confusion. This is not meant
to prevent ARIN staff from taking reasonable action
WRT DNS operational issues related to resources issued
by ARIN, but, such action can be covered by staff
operational guidelines and is not within the scope
of Address Policy.
9. Timetable for implementation:
1 June, 2008
10. Meeting presenter: Owen DeLong
