The message below started a petition regarding the ARIN Advisory
Council's decision to abandon ARIN-prop-164. The AC's decision was
posted by ARIN staff to PPML on 22 February 2012.

If successful, this petition will change ARIN-prop-164 into a Draft
Policy which will be published for adoption discussion on the PPML and
at the Public Policy Meeting in April 2012. If the petition fails, the
proposal will be closed.

For this petition to be successful, the petition needs statements of
support from at least 10 different people from 10 different
organizations. If you wish to support this petition, post a statement of
support to PPML on this thread.

The duration of the petition is until five business days after the AC's
draft meeting minutes are published. ARIN staff will post the result of
the petition to PPML.

ARIN-prop-164 Predictable ARIN IPv4 Resource exhaustion

Proposal Originator: Joe Maimon

Proposal Version: 1.0

Date: 1 February 2012

Proposal type: New

Policy term: Temporary

Policy statement:

Add a section to 4

Upon the last calendar date of the year that this proposal is adopted,
ARIN will disburse all of its available IPv4 resources to its existing
members, in proportion to their fee schedule, with the smallest
allocation of size /24, to be effective immediately.


Many people feel that ARIN has too much available resources. Many people
also believe that the uncertainty as to when ARIN will run out of these
resources is not good. This proposal seeks to resolve both of these

Timetable for implementation: Immediate
