[arin-ppml] Open Petition for ARIN-2020-2

Hi Scott,

So Alyssa’s answer are correct or rather were. ARIN, in fact, fulfilled all requests that were on the waitlist during the 4th Qtr distribution (completed first week of January). Currently there are 25 organizations approved and added to the waitlist since that time. So basically, if the policy being petitioned was successful and if the policy was then ratified by the Board, and if all 24 of the organizations that could meet the terms of the policy then they would receive their distribution prior to those 25 organizations currently on the waitlist. Based on projected inventory for the 1st quarter distribution to be held in late March, all current organizations on the waitlist today would be unaffected.

I realize there are a lot of “if’s” in there but at this time there is no way know what exactly will be the outcome. In saying that it is clear that no one on the waitlist today would be negatively affected.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,
John S.

Right - this is what I was trying to get at with my first response.

The next disbursement would fulfill the requests of all of those 26 organizations who would be reinstated if this policy passed, plus everyone else presently on the waiting list. This was the information provided to the Advisory Council in the October and November meetings. John Curran or Sweeting can confirm whether this remains true.

I believe a few of the other 26 affected orgs have chimed in during the discussion of this proposal.

Thank you. Have we heard from the other 25?  If all of these were
fulfilled, what percentage of existing inventory would be consumed.  All
of it?  It seems reasonable to me that the same kinds of considerations
apply in this case as "2 packages of toilet paper per customer" when the
pandemic hit.  This feeling becomes particularly acute when considering
both that the waitlist address pool was only replenished after the
recovery of addresses from those who acquired them fraudulently, and that
precedent to that, the waitlist mechanism suffered from no available
inventory.

I will, however, reserve voicing an opinion until I fully understand the
effects of the outcome on the available address pool, in both scenarios.

Thanks,
Scott
