William, All,

Just a small point of explanation related to this announcement.  I believe
it is more appropriate to express that their was a wide margin of support
expressed for each of these policy proposals.  'Passed' suggests that the
process of proposal evaluation is over and that the proposals 'as presented
and voted on' will become policy.

There remains the AC review of the meeting input and then, given that no
substantive changes are made, the proposal(s) would be forwarded to the ppml
for a 10 day review.  Following that, the proposal and all ppml discussion
would again be reviewed by the AC and again, given no major changes, the AC
would recommend affirmative policy action to the Board.  Given no major
problems during Board review, then the proposal(s) would become policy.

This may seem excessive, but represents the current, open, transparent and
rigorous, policy proposal process.

 For those of you who are not attending ARIN, you might be interested to

know that 2002-3 passed with about half of the attendies voting for it
only very few against. The policy presented to the meeting included both

micro-assignments and micro-allocations!
 I'd like to express my personal thanks for the work done to AC and 
particularly to Bill Darte for bringing this issue along to this point.

Also for Africans here, policy 2003-15 also passed which means AC will 
have to most likely either integrate these policies together or remove 
portions of text from 2003-15 which are covered by 2002-3.
