The ARIN community consultation on a proposed change to Whois output for
certain /8 records is now closed. We thank everyone who voiced their
opinion regarding this consultation. Based on feedback received and
internal staff deliberation, ARIN's directory services (Whois and
Whois-RWS) will be modified to publish only the DA or DS record for an
allocation made in a /8 where another RIR manages that particular /8. If
there is no corresponding DA or DS record in ARIN's service for that /8,
ARIN will publish the /8 of the authoritative RIR and the referral to
that particular RIR's directory service.

This suggestion will be added to the list of outstanding projects
awaiting prioritization found at:


Communications and Member Services

American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)
