In accordance with the Policy Development Process (PDP), the Advisory 
Council (AC) met on 6 October 2017.

The AC has abandoned the following:

* Draft Policy ARIN-2017-6: Improve Reciprocity Requirement for 
Inter-RIR Transfers

The AC provided the following statement:

"The ARIN Advisory Council has chosen to abandon Policy Proposal 2017-6, 
  “Improve Reciprocity Requirement for Inter-RIR Transfers”.  This 
proposal did not gain sufficient community support to justify continuing 
to move this policy forward, and as such, the policy has been abandoned."

Anyone dissatisfied with this decision may initiate a petition. The 
deadline to begin a petition will be five business days after the AC's 
draft meeting minutes are published.

The AC has advanced the following to a Last Call period ending 10 
November 2017 (will be posted separately for discussion):

* Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2017-5: Improved IPv6 Registration 

The AC provided the following statement regarding policy text revision 
prior to Last Call:

"Based on strong community support - on both the Public Policy Mailing 
List and in person at ARIN 40 during the policy consultation - for 
replacing the "should" qualifier in section with "shall", the 
Advisory Council, after careful review and discussion, has made the 
requested change to the text."

The AC is continuing to work on:

* Draft Policy ARIN-2017-3: Update to NPRM 3.6: Annual Whois POC Validation
* Draft Policy ARIN-2017-4: Remove Reciprocity Requirement for Inter-RIR 
* Draft Policy ARIN-2017-8: Amend the Definition of Community Network
