ARIN has issued its initial response to ACSP Suggestion 2015.10. The 
suggestion and response text are provided below. This suggestion is now 
closed and is available at:



Communications and Member Services
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)

Suggestion: *

Description: Publish certain details of IPv4 waiting list
Value to Community: ARIN should publish certain details of the waiting 
list so that people can make educated decisions about their IPv4 
planning (to the extent IPv4 planning remains relevant).
Apologies for the syntactical ugliness, but < and > are not allowed in 
suggestions so had to be replaced with ( and ), respectively.
I propose that each waiting list entry be published with only the 
following details: (DATE) (PREFIXLEN)
Where (DATA) is the date the entry was put on the waiting list and 
(PREFIXLEN) is the length of prefix being waited for. If the requestor 
specified a range, then (PREFIXSHORT)-(PREFIXLONG) should be shown for 
e.g. 2015-07-05 /20-/24, 2016-04-01 /4-/8, etc.
The benefit to the community is increased transparency in the management 
of the queue and a better ability to understand the total inadequacy of 
Users logged into AOL who have a place in the queue should have a marker 
displayed next to their queue entry "(--You are here" or equivalent.


Thanks for your suggestion, numbered 2015.10 upon confirmed receipt, to 
publish certain details of the IPv4 waiting list on the ARIN website. As 
it turns out, we had already started work on similar functionality when 
your suggestion was submitted. For the most part, we will be providing 
data consistent with your suggestion on the public website. However, 
ARIN will not be providing functionality for participants to view their 
place on the wait list.
We are going to close this suggestion as we have currently have it in 
development and will be implemented near the end of August 2015, as part 
of the next ARIN Online release.
