In accordance with the ARIN Policy Development Process, the ARIN 
Advisory Council (AC) held a meeting on 18 August 2011 and made 
decisions about several proposals.

The AC selected the following proposals as draft policies for adoption
discussion online and at the ARIN XXVIII Public Policy Meeting in
Philadelphia in October. The draft policies will be posted shortly to 
the PPML.

   ARIN-prop-137 Global Policy for post exhaustion IPv4 allocation 
mechanisms by the IANA
   ARIN-prop-144 Remove Single Aggregate requirement from Specified Transfer
   ARIN-prop-146 Clarify Justified Need for Transfers
   ARIN-prop-147 Set Transfer Need to 24 months
   ARIN-prop-155 IPv4 Number Resources for Use Within Region

The following proposals were not selected as draft policies at this time:

   ARIN-prop-151 Limiting needs requirements for IPv4 Transfers
   ARIN-prop-153 Correct erroneous syntax in NRPM 8.3

The AC as a whole felt that the text of proposal 151 was not ready 
enough to move forward to draft policy. The AC is hoping to gain more 
input through the PPML and at the upcoming Public Policy Meeting.

Since ARIN-Prop-153 was in direct conflict with ARIN-Prop-144, which the
AC had already advanced to Draft Policy status and adoption discussion 
on PPML and at the next Public Policy Meeting in Philadelphia, the 
motion to select ARIN-Prop-153 as Draft Policy did not carry. Since 
there was no motion to abandon and in accordance with the ARIN Policy 
Development Process, ARIN-Prop-153 remains on the AC's docket.

The AC abandoned the following proposals:

   ARIN-prop-149 Improved Transparency for Directed Transfers
   ARIN-prop-152 RSA Modification Limits

The AC feels that proposal 149 belongs in the consultation and 
suggestion process as it is a recomendation to staff to publish a list 
and is not addressing policy. The author has been advised of the AC's 
abandon action and has already submitted this to the ARIN Consultation 
and Suggestion Process (ACSP).

The AC feels that based upon the Clarity and Understanding from
Staff, proposal 152 is inappropriate for the NRPM. The author has
been advised of the AC's abandon action.

The AC thanks the authors and the community for their continuing effort
and contributions to these and all other policy considerations.

The AC did not select proposals 151 and 153 as draft policies and 
abandoned proposals 149 and 152. Anyone dissatisfied with these 
decisions may initiate a petition. The petition to advance these 
proposals is the "Discussion Petition." The deadline to begin a petition 
is five business days after the AC's draft meeting minutes are 
published. Note that in order for a petition of any of the proposals to 
be considered successful for the upcoming ARIN XXVIII meeting, the 
petition must be concluded by 6 September 2011 in order to meet the 
requirement of posting as draft policy at least 35 days prior to the 
meeting. If you are considering petitioning, starting one earlier is 
better than later.
