1. Welcome

The Chair called the meeting to order at 4:05 p.m. EDT. The presence of a quorum was noted.

2. Agenda Bashing

The Chair called for any comments.  SW suggested combining items 4 and 13. The Chair noted that the Council would address both items at Item  4. Micro Allocations for Anycast Services.

3. Approval of the Minutes of January 26, 2006

The chair stated that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council adopts the Minutes of January 26, 2006 as written."

There were no objections. The motion carried unanimously.

4. Policy Proposal 2005-1:Provider-Independent IPv6 Assignments for End Sites

LR stated there was discussion continuing on the PPML with a lot of opinions expressed.

5. Policy Proposal 2005-6: IPv4 Micro-Allocations for Anycast Services

SW stated that she closed loop with author on the fact that there was no consensus on the proposal as written at ARIN XVI in LA last October.  She stated that per the new proposal (Item 13), there is slightly modified text but significantly different enough to be considered separately.  The author considers different issues and is proposing the policy proposal as ‘experimental'.  EB confirmed that 2005-6 has been officially abandoned. There were no objections to closing this item.

6. Policy Proposal 2005-8: Proposal to Amend ARIN IPv6 Assignment and Utilization Requirement

LR stated she has contacted Thomas Narten but has heard nothing from him regarding progress.  The Chair tabled this item for discussion at the next meeting. LR will continue to contact Thomas.

7. Policy Proposal 2005-9: 4-Byte AS Number Policy Proposal

MK stated he and PA contacted the author and things are moving forward.  The Chair stated it will be discussed at the next meeting.

8. . Policy Proposal 2006-1: Residential Customer Privacy

PA stated that there has not been a lot of discussion on the PPML, and that the author plans to go ahead with this as-is with no modifications.

9. Board Ratification of Policy Proposals

RJ stated that all three policy proposals were considered by the Board at their February 12, 2006 meeting, and that all three proposals have been ratified.

  • 2005-4: AFRINIC Recognition Policy
  • 2005-5: IPv6 HD Ratio
  • 2005-7: Rationalize Multi-Homing Definition and Requirement

10. Discussion of IPv6 Policies

At the last meeting, BD requested the President post a summary to the AC's list for discussion. RJ stated that the President has not yet been able to post to the list, but that he will notify the President about the matter.

11. Micro-Allocations for Internal Infrastructure

ST moved that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council, having reviewed the proposed policy entitled ‘Micro Allocations for Internal Infrastructure', 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 SW. The Chair called for any comments.  There were none. The Chair called for volunteers to shepherd the proposal. ST and BD volunteered.

 The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

12. Capturing Originations in Templates

MP moved that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council, having reviewed the proposed policy entitled ‘Capturing Originations in Templates', 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 BD. The Chair called for any comments.  MK and SW stated they would be the volunteers to shepherd the proposal.

 The motion carried unanimously.

13. IPv6 Direct PI Assignments for End Sites

BD moved that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council, having reviewed the proposed policy entitled ‘IPv6 Direct PI Assignments for End Sites', 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 LR. The Chair called for any comments.  BD and LR stated they would be the volunteers to shepherd the proposal.

 The motion carried unanimously.

14. IPv4 Micro-allocations for Anycast Services (experimental)

SW moved that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council, having reviewed the proposed policy entitled IPv4 Micro-allocations for Anycast Services (experimental)', 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 MP. The Chair called for any comments. BD asked for clarification on "experimental" forms of policy proposals.  RJ explained that there is a policy that addresses experimental circumstances and asked EB if there was a process for experimental policies.
EB explained that the category that is termed ‘temporary'. He explained that the word ‘experimental' is in the title and once at the end of this policy proposal. EB stated that there will be 16 allocations and then they will expire.

BD suggested modifying the word ‘experimental' for the word ‘temporary'. SW accepted this friendly amendment. The new motion reads:

 "The ARIN Advisory Council, having reviewed the proposed policy entitled IPv4 Micro-allocations for Anycast Services (temporary)', accepts the text as submitted by the author as a formal policy proposal and, requests the President assign it a formal policy proposal number."

As a point of order, the Chair asked Counsel if this change was allowable in the title of the policy proposal. Counsel stated it was not a substantive change and it was non-essential. 

BD stated he suggested the change because he did not want any confusion with this wording and other experimental matters that occur with other organizations such as the IETF for example. SW suggested that the word "temporary" be added to the title as soon as it becomes a formal policy proposal. 

The Chair asked MP if his second still held on the motion. MP confirmed that he seconded the change. 

The motion carried unanimously.

15. Any Other Business

The Chair asked for any other business to discuss. There was no other business.

16. Adjournment

The Chair entertained a motion to adjourn at 4:29 p.m. EDT.  PA moved to adjourn and this was seconded by LR.  The motion carried unanimously.
