ARIN web site


"For more than a year, there have been discussions[1] involving
IANA (see IANA Statement), IETF, RIPE, APNIC, NSF and FNC
concerning a proposal to manage IP number assignments separate
and apart from the registration of Internet domain names. The
stability of the Internet relies on the careful management of the
IP addresses."

"Recommendations[2] have also been made that the management
of the IP space should be placed, as it is with RIPE and APNIC,
under the control of and administered by those that depend
upon and use it - the end users. Those end users include
ISPs, corporate entities, universities, and individuals."


1. Can some links be added to these discussions ?

2. Can some hypertext links be added to substantiate
who, where, when, etc. the "Recommendations" have
also been made.

Are there any references on the ARIN web site
to the AlterNIC ?

P.S. People might be interested that the InterNIC
Scout claims that the reason the AlterNIC has never
been mentioned in the Scout Report is because the
readers are not interested in network topics. The
IAHC of course was mentioned. Was ARIN mentioned?
