Policy Proposal 85
Sunset 2008-6/2009-1 on schedule

On 8 April 2009 the ARIN Advisory Council (AC) abandoned Policy Proposal
85: Sunset 2008-6/2009-1 on schedule. The AC provided the following
explanation of their decision:

This proposal was abandoned due to the fact that 2008-6 is officially
adopted and still has a valid “sunset clause” in it. The issue with
whether or not to remove the “sunset clause” from 2008-6 is being
reviewed under Draft Policy 2009-1. The AC felt that this proposal was

The AC abandoned the proposal. Per the ARIN Policy Development Process,
“Any member of the community, including a proposal originator, may
initiate a Discussion Petition if they are dissatisfied with the action
taken by the Advisory Council regarding any specific policy proposal. If
successful, this petition will change the policy proposal to a draft
policy which will be published for discussion and review by the
community on the PPML and at an upcoming public policy meeting.” Note
that we have passed the deadline for petitions for the upcoming meeting
in San Antonio (as posted to PPML on 9 March 2009); a successful
petition at this time would be for the Fall ARIN meeting.

The deadline to begin a petition for this proposal is 20 April 2009.
Petitions must include the proposal and a petition statement. Once
begun, a petition lasts for 5 business days. Success is measured as
support from at least 10 different people from 10 different
organizations. Should an actual petition begin, ARIN staff will post
additional information.
