1. Welcome

3. Approval of the Minutes

The Chair asked if there were any corrections to the previously posted minutes of the AC meeting of September 21, 2006. Hearing none, he declared the minutes approved.

4. Policy Proposal 2006-1: Residential Customer Privacy

MA reported that the poll taken during ARIN XVIII showed an overwhelming response for abandoning this proposal.

MA moved that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council, based on comments from stakeholders expressed either at the ARIN XVIII Public Policy meeting or on the ARIN public policy mailing list, having reviewed the comments collected, and noting that the Internet Resource Policy Evaluation Process has been followed, abandons Policy Proposal 2006-1: Residential Customer Privacy."

This was seconded by ST. The Chair called for discussion.  SW confirmed that consensus was clear on abandoning, but that there was support in the room for doing 'something' in this area.

The motion carried unanimously via voice vote of ayes and nays.

5. Policy Proposal 2006-2: Micro-Allocations for Internal Infrastructure

ST stated that consensus during ARIN XVIII was in favor of moving this policy proposal forward for ratification by the ARIN Board.

ST moved that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council, based on comments from stakeholders expressed either at the ARIN XVIII Public Policy meeting, or on the ARIN public policy mailing list, having reviewed the comments collected, noting that the Internet Resource Policy Evaluation Process has been followed, finds community consensus of Policy Proposal 2006-2:Micro-Allocations for Internal Infrastructure and moves it to Last Call."

This was seconded by LB.  The Chair called for discussion. Brief discussion ensued on the desire for this policy including discussion on whether or not a centralized ULA has some utility for ARIN-provided address space.

The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

6. Policy Proposal 2006-3: Capturing Originations in Templates

SW moved that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council, based on comments from stakeholders expressed either at the ARIN XVIII Public Policy meeting or on the ARIN public policy mailing list, having reviewed the comments collected, noting that the Internet Resource Policy Evaluation Process has been followed, finds community consensus of Policy Proposal 2006-3: Capturing Originations in Templates and moves it to Last Call."

This was seconded by LB. The Chair called for discussion. Discussion ensued on whether or not there was consensus for the policy.

The motioned carried via roll call with 11 in favor, and 3 against (DA, MA, RS).

7. Policy Proposal: Changes to IPv6 Initial Allocation Criteria

MK moved that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council, having reviewed the proposed policy entitled, 'Changes to IPv6 Initial Allocation Criteria', 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 ST.  The Chair called for discussion. There were no comments.

The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

8. AC Projects

A. Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) IPv6 Editing.  At the last meeting, LR stated she would draft a document and it can be discussed in St. Louis during the ARIN meeting. LR stated that she was unable to draft any text before this meeting and that she would not be able to work on it for a few more months.

B. v6 Multi-homing BCP. MA stated that discussion was mostly from the NANOG section of the meeting. She reported that two groups are forming to look at routing problems in total.  They will be looking at the document she is publishing.  CA stated she would be happy to review the document and volunteered her assistance.  MA stated that the living document will sit on the NRO's website.  The IETF did not want to do a 'pros vs. cons' document. MA stated the document is as complete as it can be for a living document. It was the sense of the AC that this was no longer an action item.

The AC deservedly recognized MA for her work and leadership on the multi-homing alternatives of IPv6.

C. PPML Polling.  DA stated that he had no update to report at this time.

9. ARIN General Counsel Update

Counsel provided a brief update to the AC on ARIN's litigation matters.

10. Any Other Business

The Chair called for any other business. He discussed the topic of AC travel to the AFRINIC meeting in December stating there was a vacancy for one more AC member to attend.  MK replied he was interested in attending. The Chair called for any further business items.

CA stated that she would like to hear comments on 'suggested' motions for the AC's expanded agendas. Matt Pounsett supported this. Further discussion ensued, and the Chair took the feedback under advisement.

BD asked how the AC will look at travel to the other RIR meetings for 2007. The Chair stated that, as is customary, the AC will hold a lottery for drawing attendees to the upcoming RIR meetings; and that two AC members will attend each other-RIR meeting.

11. Adjournment

The Chair entertained a motion to adjourn at 8:10 p.m. CDT.  AP moved to adjourn and this was seconded by MK. The motion carried unanimously.
