In accordance with the ARIN Policy Development Process the ARIN Advisory
Council (AC) held a meeting on 15 January 2010 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.

99. /24 End User Minimum Assignment Unit

97. Waiting List for Unmet IPv4 Requests

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

106. Simplified IPv6 policy

105. Simplified M&A transfer policy

The AC abandoned Policy Proposal 95. Customer Confidentiality. The AC

"The Advisory Council concluded that this proposal closely duplicates
one recently presented before the community. The community vetted the
earlier proposal at a Public Policy Meeting and on PPML in great detail
resulting in the proposal failing to gain enough support to move forward
in the Policy Development Process (PDP). The pro's and con's of PP95 were
discussed at the AC meeting held on 15 January 2010, and in the AC's opinion
there has not been a significant change in technology or nature and PP95
should not move forward in the PDP. In addition, existing policy permits
privacy regarding private residences, addressing the primary privacy issue
that the community has shown support for in recent history. The AC believes
that moving PP95 forward would not result in any benefit to the Internet
Community and therefore has chosen to abandon it."

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 95 may be petitioned. The
original versions of proposals 97 and 99 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 28 January 2010.
