Good thoughts, Danny.
Even though the long thread on NANOG has been painful at times, I think
it's also been a valuable exchange. At the same time, the NANOG list is
not the right place to discuss ARIN public policy issues.
What if, whenever we are launching a discussion of a particular topic on
the PPML list, we were simply to post to NANOG as a routine practice an
announcement that we are soliciting comments on topic thus-and-such on
PPML? Ideally, that might bring in broader participation (and reduce the
number of people who are surprised later), while still getting the policies
discussed in the appropriate forum.
