Policy Proposal 2008-3
Community Networks IPv6 Allocation

On 17 September 2008 ARIN held a Public Policy Meeting at its Caribbean
Sector Meeting in Nassau, Bahamas, to discuss active policy proposals in
the ARIN region and gain a Caribbean perspective on ARIN policies and

Lea Roberts, as a representative of the ARIN Advisory Council, presented
the proposal and its rationale. Meeting participants pointed out that
the proposal text contains the term “non-profit” which can have legal
consequences depending on the economy or country in question. After
being asked if the proposal text served the community networks in the
countries of the attendees, one attendee pointed out that “200” can be a
very large number in regards to some of the islands in the Caribbean.
The Advisory Council received a report summarizing the policy discussion
for use in its deliberations.

Community Networks IPv6 Allocation" are available at

The full report of that meeting, which includes presentations and
summary notes, is available on the ARIN website at
