The ARIN Advisory Council(AC) is charged with assessing consensus on
policy proposals. 

Most often, proposals are relatively straighforward and orient toward
relatively well-known issues that have a greater or lesser impact on the
community.  When this is the case, the process of the Information
Resource Policy Evaluation Policy (IRPEP) works pretty well.

When something as big as an amended transfer policy proposal comes along
with all its implications and little experience by anyone, especially
when the proposal itself is crafted by the AC and tries to be very
specific and comprehensive....well, this delivers unprecedented
challenges to get concise feedback from the community and make progress
toward consensus.

I personally feel perplexed by this today and I am polling those engaged
in ppml to help me and my colleagues move this proposal forward.


What I ask is for you to consider your own understanding and stance on
amending our present transfer policy to determine what you really like
(if anything) about the proposal....What must be 'in' if the proposal is
to get your support?

Alternatively, if you are not inclined to support this or any updated
transfer policy, what is it that makes this a non-starter for you?  

In each/either case, a short list of the items is what I ask for.....and
a very brief/concise explanation if you feel the need.


For those of you who have continually expressed your views, I would
still ask for your concise list as I believe the aggregate response from
all participants will help point us all in the direction of consensus.

Those who have not previously expressed your views are even more
crucial....we need your input.

As our Los Angeles Public Policy Meeting is fast approaching....October
15-17....we need your feedback right now!

Thanks for your support and continued involvement with ARIN!
