Description: CIDR notation on ARIN-issued emails
Value to Community:
Easier to read than the current XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX-YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY
e.g. change “Add 126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52” to “Add 184.108.40.206/24”
I like to scan the list for the sizes of the blocks.
Timeframe: Not specified

Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2019.10 upon confirmed receipt, suggesting that we use CIDR notation in the arin-issued report to make it easier to scan for block sizes.
The format of the arin-issued report was defined through a Community Consultation (see: https://www.arin.net/vault/announcements/2009/20090102.html). We have reason to believe that community members process this report through scripting, and that to make a change to the format of the report would create problems for those users. Out of an abundance of caution, we will not be making a change to the format of the report at this time.
Thank you for your participation in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process. This suggestion is now closed.
