Shepherds: Anita Nikolich, Kat Hunter

Current Text (26 July 2022)

Problem Statement:

This proposal continues the work that the ARIN AC NRPM Clean-up Working Group undertook to conduct an editorial review of the NRPM. It relates specifically to Sections 2.16. The focus of this proposal is to ensure that the intended meaning of the text is clear.

Policy statement:

Replace the text “The term utilized shall have the following definitions when” in the first line with the text “When applied to IPv6 policies the term “utilized” shall be interpreted as follows”; and

In the paragraph numbered 2, replace the text :

“Larger blocks shall have their utilization defined by dividing the number of provider assignment units assigned from the containing block by the total number of provider assignment units. This ratio will often be expressed as a percentage (e.g. a/t*100, for a /36 3072/4096 * 100 = 75% utilization)”

With the text:

“Larger blocks shall have their utilization defined by dividing the number of provider assignment units assigned from the containing block (a) by the total number of provider assignment units (t). This ratio will often be expressed as a percentage (e.g., a/t*100, for a /36 3072/4096 * 100 = 75% utilization).”

Comments: This proposal is intended to be editorial in nature and to replace Prop-305 in part. Note to staff: The double quotes around “utilized” are not single quotes since the outer quotes for the text being affected by the proposal will disappear when implemented.
