3. Policy Proposal 2002-3: Micro-Assignments for Multi-homed Networks.

Scott Bradner moved that:

"The ARIN Board of Trustees, based on the recommendation of the Advisory Council, and noting that the Internet Resource Policy Evaluation Process has been followed, adopt Policy Proposal 2002-3: Micro-Assignments for Multi-homed Networks."

This was seconded by Bill Manning. The Chair called for comments. There were no comments. A roll call vote was taken and the motion passed unanimously.

4. Policy Proposal 2003-3: Residential Customer Privacy.

Scott Bradner moved that:

"The ARIN Board of Trustees, based on the recommendation of the Advisory Council, and noting that the Internet Resource Policy Evaluation Process has been followed, adopt Policy Proposal 2003-3: Residential Customer Privacy."

This was seconded by David Conrad. The Chair called for comments. It was noted by the Board that consensus had not been reached on this proposal. Scott Bradner volunteered to withdraw the motion if the proposal needed to go back to the AC for further review. Richard Jimmerson summarized the mailing list discussion for the Board's information stating that Canadian zip codes had not been discussed on the list. It was the sense of the Board that this was an important issue. Scott Bradner stated that extended zip codes in the U.S. are equivalent to Canadian zip codes and suggested that the AC discuss this issue. All agreed.

Scott Bradner withdrew his motion, and the Board directed the President to contact the AC stating that the Board was concerned: that the policy ensure parity between different access technologies (DSL and cable modems); that a proper discussion had not been held on the Canadian zip code observation; and, the Board was concerned that the discussion on the PPML did not show strong enough support for the proposal.

The Chair asked if there were any objections to the motion being withdrawn. There were no objections.

Bill Woodcock moved that:

"The ARIN Board of Trustees, having reviewed the Policy Proposal 2003-3: Residential Customer Privacy, refer this policy back to the ARIN Advisory Council to consider the aspects of privacy with respect to zip code; agnostic to access technology; and, level of support."

This was seconded by Scott Bradner. The Chair called for comments. Bill Manning stated that it should be noted that there are different concerns throughout the ARIN region, not just Canada and the U.S. and that the concerns in other parts of the region need to be understood as well. All agreed. A roll call vote was taken and the motion passed unanimously.

5. Policy Proposal 2003-5: RWhois Server Uses Requirements.

Scott Bradner moved that:

"The ARIN Board of Trustees, based on the recommendation of the Advisory Council, and noting that the Internet Resource Policy Evaluation Process has been followed, adopt Policy Proposal 2003-5: RWhois Server Uses Requirements, as modified."

This was seconded by David Conrad. Scott Bradner mentioned that the issue of zip codes was also relevant in this proposal as well. Lee Howard suggested that SWIP requirements be followed. After discussion it was the sense of the Board that since this proposal depended upon PP 2003-3, it would be discussed after PP 2003-3 is finalized. It was agreed to table the discussion for PP 2003-5 to a future meeting.

Scott Bradner withdrew the motion and there were no objections.
