1. Welcome & Agenda Review

The Chair called the meeting to order at 1:07 p.m. EDT. The presence of quorum was noted. The Chair called for any comments on the agenda. There were no comments.

2. Approval of the Minutes

It was moved by Vint Cerf, and seconded by Scott Bradner, that:

"The ARIN Board of Trustees approves the Minutes of 03 February 2012, as written."

The Chair called for discussion. There were no comments. The motion carried without objection.

3. General Counsel Update

General Counsel provided an attorney-client privileged briefing to the Board on ARIN legal matters.

In the interest of time, Counsel stopped his briefing in order for the Board to address the remainder of the agenda. He requested the briefing be resumed later in the teleconference. The Chair agreed.

4. IESG Draft-Weil-Shared Transition Space Request Update

A) It was moved by Scott Bradner, and seconded by Paul Andersen, that:

"The ARIN Board of Trustees, noting that the IANA has requested that a /10 of IPv4 addresses be registered with the IANA OrgID, as per the recently approved IETF ID Draft-Weil-Shared-Transition-Space-Request, which was an outgrowth of ‘Draft Policy ARIN-2011-5: Shared Transition Space for IPv4 Address Extension’, hereby directs the staff to proceed with registering an appropriate IPv4 address block to the IANA for this purpose."

The Chair called for discussion. The President stated this was fairly straightforward. The community requested this, and as it is technical reservation, ARIN advised the community take it up with the IETF. This has been done and the resulting IETF Internet Draft is approved. The IANA, which does not have IPv4 space for available, has now requested that ARIN register an appropriate block to IANA. The President believed it appropriate to proceed.

The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

B) It was moved by Paul Andersen, and seconded by Scott Bradner, that:

"The ARIN Board of Trustees, noting that the ARIN community has successfully worked within the IETF to accomplish a shared reservation for IPv4 transition, now remands Draft Policy 2011-5 to the ARIN AC so that they may consider abandoning it as duplicative."

The Chair called for discussion. The President stated he believed it appropriate for the Advisory Council to handle this matter.

Vint Cerf suggested changing ‘…so that they may consider abandoning it as duplicative’, to ‘…for their action’. There was no objection to the amendment.

The new motion reads:

"The ARIN Board of Trustees, noting that the ARIN community has successfully worked within the IETF to accomplish a shared reservation for IPv4 transition, now remands Draft Policy 2011-5 to the ARIN AC for their action."

The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

5. Expectations on PDP Participants

It was moved by Vint Cerf, and seconded by Paul Vixie, that:

"The ARIN Board of Trustees adopt the Expected Standards of Behavior as written; and, directs staff to communicate it to participants in the ARIN Policy Development Process."

The Chair called for discussion. The President noted that the Board had discussed adopting a policy on conduct for the Board and AC at the beginning of the year, but now recommends a more general document for all participants in the policy development process.  

The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

6. Resumption of General Counsel Update

Counsel resumed the attorney-client privileged briefing to the Board. The Chair was disconnected from the call at 2:01 p.m. EDT. The Vice Chair took up the gavel.
