Sorry for the forwarded message, but I thought this might be of interest to PPML.

The IETF Ops Area Working Group has concluded that there is consensus around reserving an IPv4 /10 prefix for Shared Transition Space.  This specific message (below) is in reference to http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-weil-shared-transition-space-request-03 which, in turn, points to http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-bdgks-arin-shared-transition-space-01 as an applicability statement.

> this concludes the opsawg WGLC on shared transition space
> There were 45 messages from 22 people on the opsawg mailing list in

>   In the case where a consensus which has been reached during a face-
>   to-face meeting is being verified on a mailing list the people who
>   were in the meeting and expressed agreement must be taken into
>   account.  If there were 100 people in a meeting and only a few people
>   on the mailing list disagree with the consensus of the meeting then
>   the consensus should be seen as being verified.  Note that enough
>   time should be given to the verification process for the mailing list
>   readers to understand and consider any objections that may be raised
>   on the list.  The normal two week last-call period should be
>   sufficient for this.
> Thus, based on the combination of the very strong support shown in
> the face-to-face meeting and the strong support in response to the
> WGLC, I conclude that the WG has reached consensus in support of the
> proposal.
> I will now forward a request to the ADs that the ID be published
