2008-3 Community Networks was just added to the NRPM, two days ago, and
that requirement is in the definition.
2.11. Community Network
A community network is any network organized and operated by a volunteer
group operating as or under the fiscal support of a nonprofit
organization or university for the purpose of providing free or low-cost
connectivity to the residents of their local service area. To be treated
as a community network under ARIN policy, the applicant must certify to
ARIN that the community network staff is 100% volunteers.
I don't necessarily disagree with your comment, but that was the
consensus we came up with and I really really don't want to revisit that
for a policy that just got put into the NRPM two days ago.
I was only trying to remove some of the duplication of text in how it
was implemented, but making it another type of initial assignment criteria.
