[arin-announce] Consultation on the Future Use of the ARIN Discuss Mailing List

Thu Apr 3 11:12:11 EDT 2014

ARIN is soliciting community input on the idea of opening the current
members-only ARIN Discuss mailing list, arin-discuss at arin.net, to the
general public.

Since its inception arin-discuss has been restricted to ARIN members,
and it currently has approximately 2,450 subscribers. The list was
created to provide a forum to discuss ARIN-specific operations,
services, and fees so that the Public Policy Mailing List,
arin-ppml at arin.net, could focus on community input into the Internet
number resource policy development.

ARIN is seeking a place to engage our community in dialogue on important
topics such as Internet governance, particular in light of the recent
announcement regarding transition of NTIA's IANA stewardship role.

Additionally, ARIN recognizes that its services and practices affect
those in the community who are not members. Opening the arin-discuss
list would enable greater community input on these issues, and reduce
non-policy related discussion on arin-ppml.

Does the community support the use of arin-discuss for both global
Internet governance matters and ARIN governance and non-policy
discussions? Please provide us your opinion about opening the ARIN
Discuss mailing list.

Do you support this action, or not, and why?

Please provide comments to arin-consult at arin.net. You can subscribe to
this mailing list at:

This consultation will remain open through 5 PM EDT Friday 25 April.
