[arin-ppml] IANA advice re: Post Exhaustion IPv4 Allocation

Jason, I agree. At least for the ARIN AC the intent was that the first allocation would be immediately upon activation of Recovered IPv4 Pool and then again in each allocation period.

It seems fairly clear to me that that the policy instructs IANA to make the first allocation immediately upon one RIR dropping below a /9 inventory, and there after must wait until the next 6-month window opens up for subsequent allocations.

The window serves to allow IANA to collect IPs in its Recovered IPv4 Pool, and then have fixed point in time when the amount of IPs is totaled and divided.  At the time the first RIR drops below a /9, IANA will have already had sufficient time to collect IPs.

It also seems obvious to me that, there is a fair bit of complexity in describing this behavior and if the authors desired IANA to wait for the next 6-month window to open, then this policy text would have been much shorter.

If you think this policy suggests the IANA should wait for the next 6-month window to open, please speak up.

Thanks,

__Jason

I wanted to advise the community, and seek its input on the question of when IANA should make its first allocation from the Recovered IPv4 Pool.

It seems some read the global policy and conclude that the Recovered IPv4 Pool becomes active immediately after one RIR dipping below a /9 of inventory and IANA should straight away
make an allocation and then make its next allocation after crossing the next 6-month period starting on March 1st or September 1st.

It seems some read the global policy and conclude that the IANA should make its first allocation from the after crossing the next 6-month period starting on March 1st or September 1st after one RIR dipping below a /9 of inventory.

In short should IANA make an allocation after one RIR dipping below a /9 of inventory or should it wait until the next 6-month period opens up?

Below is the email we have received regarding this question:

Dear Louie,

As you chair the ASO AC, I am seeking your guidance on the
interpretation of the Global Policy for Post Exhaustion IPv4 Allocation
Mechanisms by the IANA, which was ratified in May 2012.

The global policy defines states that "Allocations from the IANA may
begin once the pool is declared active." It is not clear whether this
means that allocation from the Recovered IPv4 Pool should be made
straight away or whether they should happen at the start of the next
"IPv4 allocation period," the "6-month period following 1 March or 1
September."

We hope you can advise us on the intended meaning of this sentence, so
that we can implement the policy appropriately.

We look forward to receiving your response on this question of
interpretation of the Global Policy for Post Exhaustion IPv4 Allocation
Mechanisms by the IANA.

Kind regards,

Leo Vegoda
ICANN
