It was moved by DF and seconded by BD that:

“The ARIN Advisory Council, having reviewed the proposal entitled, ‘Simplified IPv6 Policy’, selects it as a Draft Policy for adoption discussion on the Public Policy Mailing List, and at the upcoming ARIN Public Policy Meeting.”

The Chair called for discussion. SL stated the proposal needed minor clarification revisions. The Chair reviewed deadlines for submission for the AC’s reference.

MA stated that she felt it would be easier to grow from one’s already allocated block. SL stated that this text proposes to change how that happens, and that one no longer needs to reserve a block to grow. MA also pointed out that this proposal is making routing policy, and that it does not belong in address management policy.

SL stated that these are complicated issues that will be clarified and discussed in Toronto. He stated more explanation is needed; and, he indicated that he would post the revisions to the AC’s list for review. OD felt that the nature of this proposal was a bad idea, but it should be discussed in Toronto.

The motion carried 8 in favor, and 5 against (DA, CA, MA, MC, HS) via roll call.

OD requested discussion of Item 13 at this time, due to time constraints. The Chair agreed.

13. Proposal 109: Standardize IP Reassignment Registration Requirements

It was moved by CA and seconded by SL that:

“The ARIN Advisory Council, having reviewed the proposal entitled, ‘Standardize IP Reassignment Registration Requirements”, accepts it onto the AC’s docket.”

The Chair called for discussion. CA felt it needed to be discussed in Toronto, and the Chair agreed to do so, confirming that the President had expressed it would be possible to do so.  CA stated that historically this would be an open microphone discussion; but she would like a more formal discussion. The Chair agreed this proposal would have a presentation with a more formal discussion.  CA or MC will present the proposal at ARIN XXV in Toronto.

MA pointed out that the proposal seems to be missing RWHOIS language. This was noted.

The motion carried unanimously via roll call.
The Chair resumed the meeting at Item 11.

11. Proposal 107: Rework of IPv6 Assignment Criteria

It was moved by DF and seconded by SL that:

“The ARIN Advisory Council, having reviewed the proposal entitled, ‘Rework of IPv6 Assignment Criteria’, accepts it onto the AC’s docket; and, selects it as a Draft Policy for adoption discussion on the Public Policy Mailing List, and at the upcoming ARIN Public Policy Meeting.”

The Chair called for discussion.  MA opposed this motion noting that the whole new section of community networks is different, and that the title does not reflect it.  She felt it should be removed from the document and be made into a separate proposal.  SL stated it was not too late to change it.

The Chair noted that the staff and legal review had been done. He did agree that there was still time to take a hard look at the text, and make sure it is the right decision if the AC is to move it forward. DF agreed to remove community networks portion.

The motion carried 10 in favor and 3 against (DA, MA, CM) via roll call.

OD left the call at this time (4:42 pm EST).
