[arin-ppml] Advisory Council Meeting Results - January 2012

In accordance with the ARIN Policy Development Process, the ARIN 
Advisory Council (AC) held a meeting on 20 January 2012 and made 
decisions about several draft policies and proposals.

The AC recommended the following draft policies to the ARIN Board for
adoption:

   ARIN-2011-11: Clarify Justified Need for Transfers
   ARIN-2011-12: Set Transfer Need to 24 months

The following proposal was added to the AC's docket for development and 
evaluation:

   ARIN-prop-161 Normalize Free pool and Transfer justification periods

The AC abandoned the following proposal:

   ARIN-prop-160 Clarification of Section 4.2.3.4.1. Utilization

Regarding proposal 160, the AC stated, "This proposal represented a 
significant change to the justification requirements in 4.2.3.4.1 for 
receiving PA space. The AC did not see significant support for such a 
change on PPML, and felt the proposal was not justified at this time."

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

The AC abandoned proposal 160. Anyone dissatisfied with this decision 
may initiate a petition. The petition to advance this proposal 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
