(Section 6 of ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual)

AD moved that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council, having reviewed the proposed amendment to 'ARIN IPv6 Assignment and Utilization Requirement (Section 6 of ARIN Number esource Policy Manual)', accepts the text as submitted by the author as a formal policy proposal; and, requests the President assign it a formal policy proposal number."

This was seconded by MK. The Chair called for discussion. Discussion ensued on whether this proposal should be combined with Item 5 on the Agenda. RP pointed out for the AC's information, that recent discussions on the PPML had been about combining policy proposal 2005-1 and Item 5 on this Agenda; and that nothing had been discussed about combining the proposals listed here as Item 4 and Item 5. It was the sense of the AC that this proposal remains a separate policy proposal. The Chair stated that LR would continue working on it with Thomas Narten.

The Vice Chair called for roll call vote. The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

RS joined the call at 11:45 a.m. EDT.

This was seconded by MK.

LB joined the call at 11:52 a.m. and apologized for being late.

The Vice Chair called for discussion on the motion. A lengthy discussion ensued regarding whether this proposed policy should be combined with policy proposal 2005-1, as RP had pointed out, had been discussed as well on the PPML. After discussion the Vice Chair called for roll call vote. The motion failed six against, four in favor.

LB moved that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council, having reviewed the proposed policy entitled 'IPv6 Direct Assignments to End-Sites', will work with the author to combine the proposed policy with policy proposal 2005-1."

This was seconded by LR. The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

The Vice Chair stated that the AC will now work with the author of the proposed policy to incorporate features of the proposal into policy proposal 2005-1; and that if the author does not wish to do this, the author can
petition his proposal as-is.

The Vice Chair stated that he and LR work with the author if amenable, and that the edits be completed by September 14th. The Vice Chair further requested ARIN staff to post a notification of this endeavor to the PPML.
