ACSP Suggestion 2009.4: Add an index and change log to the PDF version of NRPM


Author: Martin Hannigan   
Submitted On: 13 April 2009


I suggest that we add an index to the PDF version of the NRPM as well as adding the change log as an appendix.

Using the online version of the NRPM isn’t always superior to a printed copy and having an index would make it more efficient and accurate to find all of the relevant discussion points.

The document is getting large, and it’s already complicated. An index could help to alleviate some of this complexity.

We have placed an index of the NRPM on the NRPM page at:

The index is a PDF and available directly at:

ARIN staff will update the index as new versions of the NRPM are published. At the end of the second quarter next year staff will review the index use and updating efforts to determine if it is worthwhile to maintain.

Thank you for participating in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process. Suggestion 2009.4 is now closed.

You suggest that we add a change log and an index to the PDF version of the Number Resource Policy Manual. While these both seem like good ideas, we will need some time to determine how they can be accomplished to make them helpful additions.

Following the wrap up of ARIN XXIII, MSD will explore implementation of your suggestion. We will get back to you before the end of the second quarter with our specific plans. Your suggestion will remain open for now.
