ACSP Consultation: Open Suggestion Review and Project Prioritization Survey

Posted: Monday, 08 April 2013

During the next two weeks in preparation for ARIN 31, we are asking you to review the active suggestions received since the last ARIN meeting in Dallas, TX.  We are asking you to review the two active suggestions listed below and:

  1. Comment on the merits of each - (eg. Worth doing, not worth the effort, must have, etc.)
  2. For those you think have merit, rank them in your desired order of potential implementation.

We have provided a high-level staff assessment of perceived level of implementation effort for each suggestion. Be sure to read the more detailed notes at the url for each suggestion listed:

There will be a discussion period about these suggestions during the ARIN 31 Public Policy and Members Meeting. Within 30 days after the meeting, ARIN staff will publish the prioritized list of suggestions, noting any closed because the community found them to lack merit.

Please provide comments to arin-consult at You can subscribe to this mailing list at:

Discussion on will close on 30 April 2013.

If you have any questions, please contact us at

In addition, ARIN maintains a list of community and internal recommendations for new services and improvements. To gather additional community input on future upgrades and services, ARIN will hold a session to go over a list of both prioritized projects awaiting implementation and projects awaiting prioritization at ARIN 31. You can view a listing of these items at: 

The information gleaned from this community feedback session will be used as feedback for ARIN management to help prioritize future work. In addition to input gathered at the ARIN meeting, we have a survey available at:

The survey will remain open until 30 April, and we are eager to hear from you! We look forward to hearing your thoughts as we set future development and service priorities.
