<ARIN AC hat but using registered posting address>
Hey folks,

Like several other proposals, we seem to have been
hit by the summer slump considering the following.

There was a single posted objection, and it isn't
clear if lack of activity stems from 
- uninterest
- interest in seeing 2019-13 move instead
- interest in seeing 2019-4 move instead
- something else

Thanks in advance for more input!

Joe
