1. Welcome

The Chair called the meeting to order at 4:08 p.m. EST. The presence of quorum was noted. He welcomed the members elect to the call.

2. Agenda Review

The Chair called for any comments on the agenda.

 

  • The President stated for the AC's information that the ARIN Board ratified policies 2012-5 and 2012-7 at their meeting on 18 December 2012.
  • The President explained that if the Board approves the revised ARIN Policy Development Process (PDP) at their next meeting in January, it is likely there would be Public Policy Consultations (PPCs) at future NANOG meetings. He pointed out that this might be a tool that the AC wishes to make use of at the NANOG meeting, to be held in February, for select proposals.  He asked the AC to consider which, if any, proposals or draft policies they might want to discuss at the PPCs. He noted the proposals and draft policies must be designated prior to the NANOG meeting.

    The Chair stated that if there were no objections, the AC would present ARIN 2012-2, and Proposals 182 and 183 as part of the PPC at the February NANOG. He noted himself and RS would be attending the NANOG; and any AC member already attending NANOG on their own may assist in the presentations. John Springer stated he would be attending NANOG and would be happy to participate.

    To clarify SL asked if the items would be presented as informational items, and not for adoption. The Chair stated that was correct, due to time constraints and the AC needing to become familiar with the new PDP.

    DF suggested, based on the results of this meeting, to make sure to consider if there would be any changes to the line up of items. The Chair agreed.

    The Chair called for any objections to this plan of action. There were no objections.

3. Approval of the Minutes

It was moved by BD, and seconded by OD, that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council approves the Minutes of 15 November 2012, as written."

The Chair called for discussion. There were no comments.

The motion carried with no objections.

4. Draft Policy ARIN-2012-2: IPv6 Subsequent Allocations Utilization Requirement

Neither shepherd was available for comment. The Chair stated this is the Draft Policy that would be presented as an informational item at the February NANOG PPCs. All agreed.

5. Draft Policy ARIN-2012-6: Revising Section 4.4 C/I Reserved Pool Size

It was moved by BS, and seconded by OD, that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council, based on comments from stakeholders expressed either at the ARIN XXX Public Policy Meeting, or on the ARIN Public Policy Mailing List, having reviewed the comments collected, and noting that the Policy Development Process has been followed, finds Advisory Council and Community support for Draft Policy 2012-6: Revising Section 4.4 C/I Reserved Pool Size and moves to it to Last Call."

The Chair called for discussion. SL stated that the Draft Policy was ready to move forward, and that he supported the motion. He had requested additional suggestions for the rationale but none were received. He was confident it was ready regardless. KB stated that he was in support of the motion and hoped it was one of the few, if not last, policies to go to last call with significant changes made after the Public Policy Meeting. Nevertheless, he believed the changes were made correctly.

The Chair called for objections to be voiced on the motion. There were no objections.

The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

6. Draft Policy ARIN-2012-8: Aligning 8.2 and 8.3 Transfer Policy

It was moved by CG, and seconded by BD, that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council, based on comments from stakeholders expressed either at the ARIN XXX Public Policy Meeting, or on the ARIN Public Policy Mailing List, having reviewed the comments collected, and noting that the Policy Development Process has been followed, finds Advisory Council and Community support for Draft Policy ARIN-2012-8: Aligning 8.2 and 8.3 Transfer Policy and moves to it to Last Call."

The Chair called for discussion. CG stated that the text is on the AC's Wiki with a small wording change from the staff assessment, which was included in the text for this motion.  DF asked if the staff and legal review would be sent with last call text, and if not, could it be made available? The President stated the review was not customarily sent; however, the policy archive would have a link to the staff assessment. The President suggested the AC could post an announcement. The Chair believed the link was sufficient. All agreed.

The Chair called for objections to be voiced on the motion. There were no objections.

The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

7. ARIN-Prop-182: Update Residential Customer Definition to Not Exclude Wireless as Residential Service

DF stated there were no updates. There was a little traffic on the Public Policy Mailing List (PPML), which he would address after the holidays. CG stated that there was discussion at the ARIN XXX meeting in October, and there was confusion voiced on the author's intent of the proposal.  CG explained that he spoke with the author, and his intention is to get to 50% utilization for market areas for mobile providers.

8. ARIN-Prop-183. Section 8.4 Transfer Enhancement

SL stated that an email was sent on the proposed updated text, but there has not been enough time for the AC to review it. He asked the AC to do so in order for it to be discussed at their face-to-face meeting in January so as to potentially move it to Draft Policy status.

9. Improve Communications Group (IC) Report

(IC members: KB, BD, OD, CG)

KB stated he had no update at this time, and would provide one at the AC's January meeting.

10. Any Other Business

The Chair called for any other business, and reminded the AC to submit 2012 travel expense reports, as it was year-end and ARIN financials needed to be finalized.

He reminded the AC that their January meeting would be held at a different venue in 2013 than in previous years, and that their dinner will be after their meeting on Friday.

He also reminded them that the election for the position of AC Chair would be open for nominations on 2 January 2013. He commended ARIN staff for their support during the elections.

The Chair thanked everyone for their work in 2012.

It was moved by OD, and seconded by SL, that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council thanks out-going AC member Chris Morrow for his three years of service to the AC."

The motion carried by acclamation. 

11. Adjournment

The Chair entertained a motion to adjourn at 4:29 p.m. EST. SH moved to adjourn, seconded by OD. The motion carried with no objections.
