* ARIN-2019-17: Returned Addresses to the 4.10 Reserved Pool

Regarding ARIN-2019-13, the AC has issued the following statement:

"The ARIN AC has decided to abandon policy proposal 2019-13 based on 
community feedback that the policy proposal did not address a pressing 
problem that needed to be solved, and legal assessment citing 
substantial legal risks if the policy proposal were adopted."

Regarding ARIN-2019-17, the AC has issued the following statement:

"The ARIN Advisory Council has chosen to abandon Policy Proposal 2019-17 
"Returned Addresses to the 4.10 Reserved Pool" due to lack of community 
support for enlarging the 4.10 pool and a sustained community need that 
continues to be met by the IPv4 waiting list."

Anyone dissatisfied with these decisions 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 Proposal to Draft Policy status (will 
be posted separately for discussion):
