In accordance with the ARIN Policy Development Process (PDP), the ARIN
Advisory Council (AC) held a meeting on 28 January 2011 and made
decisions about several draft policies and proposals.

The AC recommended that the ARIN Board of Trustees adopt the following
draft policy:

   ARIN-2010-14: Standardize IP Reassignment Registration Requirements

The AC selected the following proposals as draft policies for adoption
discussion online and at the ARIN XXVII Public Policy Meeting in San
Juan, Puerto Rico. Each draft policy will be posted shortly to the PPML.

   ARIN-prop-119. Globally Coordinated Transfer Policy
   ARIN-prop-120. Protecting Number Resources
   ARIN-prop-121. Better IPv6 Allocation for ISPs
   ARIN-prop-123. Reserved Pool for Critical Infrastructure
   ARIN-prop-127. Shared Transition Space for IPv4 Address Extension

The AC added the following proposal to their docket but decided not to
select it as a draft policy at this time:

   ARIN-prop-126. Compliance Requirement

The AC abandoned the following proposals:

   ARIN-prop-128. Replacement of Section
   ARIN-prop-129. IPv4 Addresses for Process Participants
   ARIN-prop-130. IPv4 Transition Reservation for Every ASN

The AC abandoned ARIN-prop-128 due to opposition on the list, and
because there is insufficient time to implement the proposal through the
normal PDP. As a result, the proposal would need to be a Board Emergency
PDP action to have any effect. The AC understands that the use of the
emergency process requires that there be significant risk to ARIN should
the Board allow a situation to continue. This matter does not warrant
the use of the emergency process.

The AC abandoned ARIN-prop-129 and ARIN-prop-130 because they violate
the community principle of needs-based assignments.

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.” Proposals 126, 128, 129 and 130 may be petitioned
(Discussion Petition) to try to change them into draft policies for
adoption discussion on the Public Policy Mailing List and at the April
Public Policy Meeting. The deadline to begin a petition will be five
business days after the AC's draft meeting minutes are published.
