PDPWG  - Last Call

During the  AfriNIC-14 Public Policy Meeting that took place in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania 
on the 8th and 9th June 2011, the "Global Policy for  Post Exhaustion IPv4 Allocation 
Mechanisms by the IANA" proposal with reference  AFPUB-2011-v4-004-draft-01 was declared
to have reached consensus. In line with the AfriNIC Policy Development Process (PDP),
we, the PDPWG Co-chairs, are now issuing a Last Call for comments on the proposal as
follows:

Start of Last Call: 29 July 2011
End of Last Call: 16 August 2011

No objections or recommendations to modify were recorded on this policy proposal during 
the public policy meeting. However, a summary of the comments made is shown here below, 
as minuted, together with additional references.

We are calling on the community to further review the policy proposal with its
associated documents and to make comments during this Last Call in line with the PDP.

At the end of the Last Call, we will make a final assessment on whether consensus has 
been reached by taking into consideration the comments from the Public Policy Meeting as
well as those during this Last Call period.

Regards.

PDPWG Co-chairs
AfriNIC Policy Development Working Group

Highlights of Discussions during Face to Face meeting in Dar es Salaam

**This proposal is an improvement over the similar  "Global Policy for
IPv4 Allocations by the IANA Post Exhaustion" proposal
<http://www.afrinic.net/docs/policies/AFPUB-2010-v4-003-draft-02.htm>
because it does NOT mandate any returns of IPv4 space to IANA, and does
not deal with any issues of transfer.

** In the AfriNIC region, any space gotten through this proposal will be
subjected to the IPv4 Soft Landing policy should it be ratified and
implemented.

**The main rational for equal space sharing is because it is simple has
been done before. (Distribution of the last blocks of /8s by IANA to the
RIRs in February 2011).

**S. Moonesamy (speaking as a co-author) said there are currently some
bits and pieces of address space at IANA but there is no policy to guide
IANA in deal with it. Sanjaya  reported that APNIC is considering
returning some of the returned legacy space to IANA (about 1/3 of a /8)
while Arturo Servin of LACNIC reported that if LACNIC got any legacy
space back, it would be returned to IANA.

**S. Moonesamy recused himself from the consensus evaluation for this
proposal (on the grounds that he is a co-author) and it was up to Alan
Barrett alone who evaluated and declared consensus. The next step was
for it go to to Last Call.
