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

In accordance with the ARIN Policy Development Process the ARIN Advisory
Council (AC) held a meeting on 16 June 2011 and made decisions about
several proposals.

The following proposals have been added to the AC's docket for
development and evaluation:

   ARIN-prop-149 Improved Transparency for Directed Transfers
   ARIN-prop-151 Limiting needs requirements for IPv4 Transfers
   ARIN-prop-152 RSA Modification Limits
   ARIN-prop-153 Correct erroneous syntax in NRPM 8.3

The AC abandoned the following proposals:

   ARIN-prop-148 LRSA resources must not be transferred to LRSA
   ARIN-prop-150 Reclamation Hold

Proposal 148 was abandoned because the majority of the AC members feel 
that which legal agreement ARIN uses with a resource requester is a 
business matter. It is indeed the case, however, that if the community 
feels there should be certain policy requirements for what is in an RSA, 
LRSA or similar document that those could be specified in policy. This 
would require ARIN to put those items in any agreement where applicable 
and allowed by law.  The AC felt that ARIN-prop-152 was an example of 
such a policy proposal, and voted to accept it onto the AC's docket for 
further development.

The Advisory Council has abandoned Proposal 150 based on the merits of 
the proposal and the author's stated desired to have it withdrawn.

The AC thanks the authors and the community for their continuing effort
and contributions to these and all other policy considerations.

The AC abandoned proposals 148 and 150. Anyone dissatisfied with these 
decisions may initiate a petition. The petition to advance these 
proposals would be the "Discussion Petition." The deadline to begin a 
petition will be five business days after the AC's draft meeting minutes 
are published. For more information on starting and participating in 
petitions, see PDP Petitions at:
