In accordance with the ARIN Policy Development Process (PDP), the ARIN
Advisory Council (AC) held a meeting on 20 May 2010 and made decisions
about several draft policies and proposals.

After last call the AC recommended that the ARIN Board of Trustees adopt
the following draft policies:

   2010-4: Rework of IPv6 allocation criteria
   2010-6: Simplified M&A transfer policy

After last call the following draft policy remains on the AC's docket,
because it did not receive the required number of votes to move to last
call (The AC established a standing rule in January that requires an
affirmative vote of the majority of the members of the full Advisory
Council regarding any final action on draft policies):

   2010-2: /24 End User Minimum Assignment Unit

The AC accepted the following proposal on to the AC's docket for
development and evaluation:

   113. IPv6 for 6rd

The AC tabled making a decision about adding the following proposal to
the AC's docket until their next meeting:

   111. IPv4 Fragment Management policy proposal

The following items remain on the AC's docket for further development
and evaluation:

   2010-1: Waiting List for Unmet IPv4 Requests
   2010-8: Rework of IPv6 assignment criteria
   109. Standardize IP Reassignment Registration Requirements

The AC abandoned the following proposals:

   110. Preservation of minimal IPv4 Resources for New and Small
Organizations and for IPv6 Transition
   112. Utilization of 10.4.2 resources only via explicit policy
   114. RFC1918 as initial ISP multihomed criteria

The ARIN AC abandoned Proposal 110 "Preservation of minimal IPv4
Resources for New and Small Organizations and for IPv6 Transition" due
to a lack of support on PPML, and because they felt that the proposal
was  overly complicated."

The AC abandoned Proposal 112 "Utilization of 10.4.2 resources only via
  explicit policy" due to the proposed added restrictions to be placed
upon the resource allocation process. Additionally, there was not much
support on the PPML.

The AC abandoned Proposal 114 "RFC 1918 as Initial Multi-Homed
Criteria" in light of the author's stated intent to drop the proposal
and the observation that the proposal has not received much support on PPML.

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.” 2010-2 may be petitioned to try to move it to the
Board for review (see "Board of Trustees Consideration Petition" in the
PDP). The abandonment of proposals 110, 112 and 114 may be petitioned to
try to change them into draft policies for discussion on the Public
Policy Mailing List and at the October meeting (Discussion Petition).
The deadline to begin a petition is 2 June 2010.
