[arin-ppml] Advisory Council Meeting Results - January 2011

I am sorry Bill you're right I meant PP-128.  With respect to my
communication skills everyone makes a typo.  We are 15 volunteers with day
jobs and sometimes we make typos. I agree with Bill Darte however, we do
send a written reason in the minutes of why a proposal was acted on in a
particular way.  If you think the process is incomplete please make
suggestions via the ARIN suggestion and consultation process.  The board is
working on a new PDP right now and I am sure they would love your
suggestions.  I know the ideas floating around in the new PDP discussion
include a little working group for each proposal and that might help.

Thanks again!
----Cathy
