ACSP Suggestion 2012.22: Additional Detail in NRPM Change log

Author: David Farmer

Submitted On: 14 November 2012

Suggestion

The NRPM Change log ( https://www.arin.net/policy/nrpm_changelog.html ) is an excellent record of the changes in the NRPM over time. Most changes are caused by the implementation of Draft Policies, and the related Draft Policies for each change, in addition to the sections changed, are recorded for each change and the Draft Policies may be reviewed to provide more detailed context regarding the change in question.

However, in the case of editorial changes there is no additional context provided, only a listing of the sections changed. Future, editorial changes should provide a reference explaining the details of the change and possibly the rationale or motivation for the editorial change for historical reference.

If possible, previous editorial changes should be updated with such information as well.

Thanks.

Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2012.22 upon receipt, requesting some short description in the NRPM change log when editorial changes are made.

We think this is a valid request and going forward we will add a small description about what prompted the editorial update. As time permits we will back fill the change log with this information where appropriate.

Thank you for participating in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process. Suggestion 2012.22 is now closed.
