[arin-ppml] Petition Underway - Policy Proposal 95: Customer Confidentiality - Time Sensitive

In answer to your question, yes the AC has continued to stay focused on the business at hand. The petition itself has not been a distraction and although some of the posts not dealing directly with the petition may seem to be a distraction we, the AC, have actually used them to discuss how to make the PDP better moving forward. Over the last 5 days the AC has edited and submitted 3 proposals to ARIN for legal and staff review and there has been 1 additional proposal submitted that should be posted later today. We are on a tight schedule for the Toronto meeting and really cannot afford to be distracted. To be perfectly honest the Petition Process is a very important part of the new PDP and the use of it is fully supported. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to address this issue.

Out of curiosity, is the AC able to focus on the other items on the
docket with all of this going on?

I mean... this is the first real test. What kind of impact and/or
disruption has this caused, if any? It may be worth documenting.
