[arin-ppml] About needs basis in 8.3 transfers

If I understood your comment below, you are now agreeable to remove SOME of the needs tests on only a /24.  I suppose that is a change but not much of one at all and it will only help the smallest of the needs out there MAYBE if they can pass whatever your relaxed needs test would be.  Yes maybe that is a slight shift in your position but pretty negligible and NOT IMHO what is really needed.

If this was 10 or 15 years ago and I was in a position to block an allocation request of yours for say a /22 that you really needed, I doubt you would be very happy if I told you that you could only have a /24 and then only if you could pass some arbitrary test that I came up with.  In the real world folks need real allocations and current policy stands in the way.

Is is indeed a significant shift in my position.
I think that is something you should recognise.
I'm all for giving small orgs the space they need, which seems to be what you want.  However, ido not believe that this policyt does that for you, or indeed for anyone in a way that is cheaper than getting the space from the RIR.

Wow!  A whole /24 – that’s pretty generous of you!  What a large compromise that is .  .  .  .

Hi Steven,

There are several folks (like me) who want to ditch the needs test and there are several folks who don't want to ditch them.  I take it your position is that the folks who want to keep needs tests should somehow prevail in this argument without much or any change,  and those of us who wish to ditch them should just accept the status quo with needs tests. In other words you win and we lose!

I saw a lot of folks comment here recently who want to at least loosen needs tests on the smaller block sizes, many many more than I've ever seen before.  Since it is obvious a sizable portion of this community desires a change toward loosening policies, why is it that you persist in standing in the way of compromise?

As for me, I think relaxing (not eliminating needs assessment at a /24 boundary is plenty of compromise.
See Andrew Dul's most recent mail for possible scenario's.

There comes a time when fair is fair - and small organizations are routinely discriminated against because of our small size and not so deep pockets.  There is a lot of anger out there over the unfairness of these existing policies.  It should be just as easy for us to get resources as it was for T-Mobile and others.  I call on all members of this community to at least come to a compromise.  After all the world hasn't ended for RIPE with their changes - and it won't end here either if fairness is put back into the policies so that small organizations can get the resources they need too!

Indeed, it does. However, many people have also repeatedly stood up in defense of needs basis, so singling me out as if I am the lone supporter of preserving needs basis is as specious as many of your other arguments.

Owen
