The ARIN Advisory Council (AC) met on 29 April 2009 and kept the 
following two draft policies on the AC’s docket for further development 
and evaluation:

   ·         Draft Policy 2009-3 (Global): Allocation of IPv4 Blocks to 
Regional Internet Registries

   ·         Draft Policy 2008-3: Community Networks IPv6 Assignment

The AC met in accordance with the ARIN Policy Development Process which 
requires the AC to meet within 30 days of the conclusion of the Public 
Policy Meeting to make decisions about the draft policies that had been 
presented. The PDP states that draft policies that are neither sent to 
last call nor abandoned are to remain on the AC’s docket for further 
development and evaluation. 2009-3 was purposefully kept for further 
work. 2008-3 was kept because both votes to move it to last call, and 
votes to abandon, failed.

These draft policies did not go to last call. This action may be 
petitioned. The PDP states, “Any member of the community, including a 
proposal originator, may initiate a Last Call Petition if they are 
dissatisfied with the action taken by the Advisory Council regarding any 
draft policy. If successful, this petition will move the draft policy to 
last call discussion and review by the community on the PPML.”

The deadline to begin a petition for these draft policies is 8 May 2009. 
Petitions must include the draft policy text 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 a petition begin, ARIN staff will post additional
