The deadline for petitions is 14 December 2011.

The AC's draft minutes of their 16 November 2011 meeting are available
at: https://www.arin.net/about_us/ac/index.html

The AC provided the following statement regarding proposal 158: "After 
discussing prop-158 the AC has come to the conclusion that the 
underlying issue is one of staff interpretation of existing policy and 
based on community feedback has chosen to abandon this proposal rather 
than working further on this aspect of IPv4 policy. The shepherds would 
like to point out that further discussion regarding ARIN's role in 
address aggregation may be warranted."
