On 16 January, we issued a response to ASCP 2019.24: Publish 
Machine-readable Micro-allocation List.


The full text of our response and the suggestion can be found below:


Description: Publish the ARIN Micro Allocations List in machine-readable 
formats. Maybe as IRR route-set objects and/or JSON files.

Value to Community: While this information is already published on a 
website, at 
https://www.arin.net/reference/research/statistics/microallocations/ the 
current format likely requires human intervention to make it 
operationally useful for network automation or inclusion in routing 
policy. Making the information available as IRR route-set objects and/or 
JSON files would make this information more operationally useful.


Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2019.24 upon confirmed receipt, 
that ARIN a publish machine-readable micro-allocations list.

     Currently the micro-allocations list is generated manually by 
staff, like many of our other published reports and statistics. We 
currently have a project in our development backlog to look at ways to 
automate this reporting on the website.  Because your suggestion aligns 
well with that effort, it will remain open for consideration as part of 
an automated reporting project on our future work plan.
