[arin-ppml] Board Rejects "ARIN-prop-266: BGP Hijacking is an ARIN Policy Violation” Due to Scope

Hi Amy,

 

Thanks a lot for your quick response.

 

We should have done this before probably, so it is also my fault expecting something to happen from the other side and not pushing more for it.

 

I don’t think everybody interprets that in the same sense as you. In fact, I realized it after some folks (native US) pointed me to re-read the minutes even if I’ve already read them before. So even if it may be an English interpreation problem, I feel that native speakers may have the same missinterpretation.

 

I agree then that the minutes should not be amended, but the problem of who doesn’t follow the full history, read the minutes, and don’t know me (or the other co-author), is that it can be interpreted the same way “ohhhh this guy is trying to missuse ARIN for some hidden personal motivation”.

 

We all know that all what you say in Internet is there forever, and a customer, or someone that doesn’t know me, can read that the same way, and you may guess that he/she is not going to read the full history. They may just reach the minutes with a google search.

 

So I’m perfectly ok with your response and happy to forget all this. However, I feel that there must be some way to clarify in the minutes what you have confirmed in this email (issues 1 and 2). May be a footnote to the minutes for each of the issues?

 

I think this is also good for the community, because something wrong as issue 1, in the AC meeting minutes is not nice at all.

 

Thanks!

 

Regards,

Jordi

Hi Jordi,

 

It sounds like there was some miscommunication between us, and I appologize for that. 

 

>From what I understood of our conversation about the AC minutes, you felt I had maligned your character in the meeting by saying that you had some nefarious alternative motive for the proposal other than preventing hijacking. I recall appologizing and telling you this was not my intention and that I would check out the minutes and try and have them corrected if that was what was recorded.

 

As you quoted, what was recorded was "AP stated that she believed that the author was using ARIN to solve their problem." What I meant was that I believed the author was using the ARIN policy development process to solve the problem of BGP hijacking, which I believe is not a problem that falls within the scope of ARIN policy. I chose not to try and have the minutes changed or make a public statement because, given the context of the discussion taking place at the meeting, I believed others reading the minutes were likely to interpret the statement as intended. 

 

However Jordi clearly still feels this is not the obvious interpretation, so I'd like to take this opportunity to say that I do not believe that Jordi was trying to do anything nefarious. I believe he was trying to solve a real problem that exists, and that his goals were noble. I simply think that ARIN policy is not the appropriate vehicle. 

 

As for the statement about a previous LACNIC policy, Jordi is correct that I was mistaken about that. There was a proposal in 2016 that struck me as being out of scope in a very similar way as this one.  It turns out the proposal I was reminded of was actually about settling IPv4-IPv6 connectivity disputes not about BGP hijacking. My appologies for the mixup.

 

I do not think the minutes need to be altered, because they accurately reflect my memory of what was said.  I appologize if anyone interpreted my statements as maligning Jordi's character. Nothing of the sort was intended.

 

Amy

As I've said in my email, this is not about the proposal, it just reminded me that it has been 3 months, since the minutes where publish and they haven't been corrected.

I've already raised this when I saw the minutes for the first time. It is not my fault if the AC has not corrected it, or publicly asked excuses. I was told at that time that the minutes are draft, and will be confirmed later on, even if I explicitly said the same you indicate "how is possible they are draft if it says they have been reviewed".

Actually I'm happy if the minutes are not changed, but it should be publicly acknowledge that they contain false information and that should be somehow attached also to the published minutes.

Jordi

    I'm sure your seemingly frivolous allegation of a criminal act by AC members
    will NOT be appreciated by anyone.   If you believe legitimate errors have been
    made,  then I would suggest  you bring up what you have without using
    language that would be considered as poisoning the well.

    Anyways, the AC minutes are moot regarding outcome of the policy proposal,
    as the BoT  has looked at it and agreed as the proposal Prop 266 clearly was
    way outside the defined scope according to the ARIN policy development process;
    adjustments to discussion minutes would not mean that a decided action
    is reversed.

    I don't actually know whether that is false or not,  but even if
    something brought
    to the discussion turned out to be inaccurate, that does not make the minutes
    themself incorrect  -- the minutes should keep an accurate record of what
    was said/done;   even if something that was said turned out to be an error
    or mistake.

    > I talked to Amy Potter (AP), and she confirmed that she never said that,

    Oh, really?    Well, you can refer to published AC May minutes  that
    says official
    April minutes were approved as-is without objections,  in other words the
    people in attendance at next meeting would have agreed that the record was
    an accurate representation of what business transpired at that meeting.

    I would imagine if the AC were concerned enough about who or what
    exact discussion point was brought up: you would have a published
    statement or special business at their meeting to request an extra
    note in the minutes.

    More than 2 months and meetings later is probably a quite inappropriate time
    to suggest  further modification to official records of a proceeding that are
    already approved and finalized;   at this point their meeting participants are
    very likely to have gaps in their personal memories regarding the minute
    details of their discussions, who said what, etc.  A member might not even
    recollect exactly their own words,  unless  they have a recording
    to refer to,  as in, the minutes...
