Hey everyone,

Such a quiet list in comparison to Nanog. :)

This just arrived in my mailbox today about ARIN updating their IP
allocation/etc policy manual.

Clip from the email ARIN sent:

> On 9 May 2006, the ARIN Board of Trustees, based on the recommendation of the
> Advisory Council and noting that the Internet Resource Policy Evaluation Process
> had been followed, adopted the following policy
> proposals:
> 2005-1: Provider-independent IPv6 Assignments for End Sites
> 2005-8: Proposal to amend ARIN IPv6 assignment and utilisation requirement
> 2005-9: 4-Byte AS Number 
> These policy proposals have been incorporated into version 2006.2 of the ARIN
> Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) which is effective 30 August 2006. 

Here's the links to the changes:

> NRPM version 2006.2 supersedes previous versions. See Appendix A of the NRPM
> for information regarding changes to the manual.
> The NRPM can be found at:
> Appendix A can be found at:

Probably the most interesting thing is "Proposal 2005-1" that allows
for /48s to be assigned directly to end users, so filters are going to
have to be opened up from /32s to /48s in general now.
