Editorial Change ARIN-edit-2020-9

Status: Under Discussion
Shepherds: Alison Wood, Kerrie Richards

Current Text (23 March 2021)

Problem Statement:

ARIN staff have identified some areas of potential editorial clean-up of section 4 of the NRPM. Building on those recommendations the ARIN AC NRPM Clean-up Working Group undertook an editorial review of section 4.

The focus of the review was to clarify and simplify language, employ consistent and more up to date terminology throughout and renumber the sections after removing section numbers that were no longer being utilized. In the course of this work, we discovered the need for certain changes to sections 2, 3, and 6. We included those that are editorial in nature in this proposal.

Other changes to those three sections will be addressed in subsequent proposals. We are also proposing that the NRPM Table of Contents be updated to reflect the editorial changes to the NRPM contents contained in this proposal.

Policy Statement:

The changes proposed to be made in this editorial proposal are too numerous to list individually. Accordingly, a document is provided at http://www.arin.net/participate/policy/drafts/pdf/ARIN_edit_2020_9_markup.pdf that shows the changes being proposed as mark-up text relative to the version of the NRPM in effect when the editorial work of the Working Group started.

Timetable for Implementation: Immediate


This proposal is intended to be editorial in nature.
