In accordance with the ARIN Policy Development Process (PDP), the ARIN
Advisory Council (AC) held a meeting on 17 February 2011 in order to
make decisions about draft policies and proposals.

The AC added the following proposal to their docket:

   ARIN-prop-131. Section 5.0 Legacy Addresses

The AC also developed ARIN-prop-131 into a draft policy for adoption
discussion online and at the ARIN XXVII Public Policy Meeting in San
Juan, Puerto Rico. The draft policy "ARIN-2011-6: Returned IPv4
Addresses" will be posted shortly to the 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.” The AC used proposal 131 to generate a draft policy,
the text of which is different from the original proposal. Proposal 131
may be petitioned (Discussion Petition) to try to advance the original
version as a draft policy for adoption discussion on the Public Policy
Mailing List and at a Public Policy Meeting. The deadline to begin a
petition will be five business days after the AC's draft meeting minutes
are published. However, in order for a petition of proposal 131 to be
considered successful for the ARIN XXVII meeting, the entire petition
must be concluded by 7 March 2011 in order to meet the requirement of
posting as draft policy at least 35 days prior to the meeting.

The Advisory Council appreciates the involvement of all community
members who provide input toward a complete discussion of policy
proposals. The AC especially wishes to thank those authors of policy
proposals for their efforts in helping the community address possible
