As directed by the ARIN Board of Trustees in its 7 May 2007 IPv6 
resolution (http://www.arin.net/announcements/20070521.html), ARIN 
continues to look for ways to assist the community by providing 
education and outreach on migration to IPv6. Today ARIN opens a new 
wiki-based site as an open forum for the ARIN community. All interested 
individuals in the community are invited to use the site, at 
http://www.getipv6.info, to post information they believe may be helpful 
to others looking at implementations or migrations of networks to
IPv6. This can include recommended practices, success stories, case 
studies, and general information on using IPv6 in the ARIN region. The 
intent is to create a site that is useful and relevant, particularly to 
those involved with IPv6 within the ARIN region, by taking advantage of 
the incredible range of knowledge available in the ARIN community.

As is the case with all wiki-based websites, this site will be an open 
and organic repository of information. What appears on the site will be 
up to the community, with only minimal involvement by ARIN staff. To 
help begin and frame the focus of the site, some relevant links back to 
ARIN's main website have been added, and general policies regarding 
acceptable use and privacy have been created and posted.

Those unfamiliar with wiki-based websites should review the MediaWiki 
User's Guide at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki_User's_Guide 
before getting started. As the site develops and grows, ARIN staff 
involvement will be limited to assisting or organizing navigation and 
highlighting specific content articles or categories. Individuals with 
questions or suggestions about this site may send them to 
webmaster at arin.net.

ARIN looks forward to the community taking this small "seed" and 
developing it into a resource that has value to everyone.
