In accordance with the ARIN Policy Development Process (PDP), the ARIN
Advisory Council (AC) held a meeting on 18 February and made decisions
about several policy proposals.

The AC selected the following proposals as draft policies for adoption
discussion online and at the April Public Policy Meeting in Toronto.
Each draft policy will be posted shortly to the PPML.

   107. Rework of IPv6 assignment criteria
   106. Simplified IPv6 policy
   105. Simplified M&A transfer policy
   102. Reduce and Simplify IPv4 Initial Allocations
   101. Multihomed initial allocation criteria

The AC accepted the following proposals on to the AC's docket for
development and evaluation.

   109. Standardize IP Reassignment Registration Requirements

The AC abandoned proposal "108. Eliminate the term license in the NRPM",
so that ARIN Counsel and staff may develop an administrative change with
the appropriate language. Per existing practice, such a change will be
sent to the ARIN AC for their review prior to action by the ARIN Board
of Trustees.

The PDP states, “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.” The abandonment of proposal 108 may be petitioned.
Proposal 109 may be petitioned because it was not selected for adoption
discussion. The original versions of proposals 101, 102, 105, 106 and
107 may also be petitioned (if the original text is preferred over the
resulting draft policy text). The purpose of a petition would be to
change the proposal into a draft policy for discussion on the Public
Policy Mailing List and at the April meeting. The deadline to begin a
petition is 2 March 2010.
