[arin-ppml] FW: Proposal: Clarification of draft policy 2009-3 (ARIN-prop-135)

I don't believe that is the case...

If it's a /8 or larger, then IANA will give it out to whichever RIR
asks for it first.

2009-3 is necessary if IANA is to parcel out chunks smaller than /8
to RIRs.

There are no dirty tricks here, Bill.

I think there are multiple layers of misunderstanding and different
interpretations of:
	Current policy
	Staff understanding of current policy
	Staff implementation of current policy
	Staff understanding and impending implementation of 2009-3

We didn't oppose 131, we moved it forward for discussion at the
Puerto Rico meeting. The AC did make some changes to the
policy text in that process and we will probably continue to
improve it between now and the March 7 text freeze. Doing so
is within the purview of the AC and is in our job description. It's
what we are expected to do.

Owen

Speaking for myself about my impression of the AC's actions
and not acting as a spokesman for the AC.
