The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

6. Status of 2011 Face-to-Face Meeting Plans

At the last meeting it was decided that the ASO AC would meet for a face to face meeting in San Francisco, CA USA during the ICANN 40 meeting pending an agenda and approval from the NRO EC.

AB stated that at their meeting on January 25, 2011, the NRO EC approved the ASO AC face-to-face meeting.  The ASO AC will hold its face-to-face meeting on March 15 and a hold a workshop on March 16. He reminded everyone to arrange travel plans as soon as possible and to register for ICANN as well.  JS asked the status of the room space? ON stated that ARIN, as Secretariat, is working with him on acquiring meeting room space.

7. Discussion of Implementation of Section 2 of the Global Policy for the Allocation of the Remaining IPv4 Address Space.

LV stated that since some of the ASO AC members have changed since the first half of this policy was implemented in 2009, he felt it would be useful to provide an overview of the history of the policy so that everyone is informed. He stated that in 2009, when the policy was adopted, five /8s were taken out of the pool and set aside for implementing when the second half of the policy was put into effect. The five /8s that were selected were researched for the least amount of traffic in order to give people joining the Internet after the final IP allocations were given to the RIRs, the best chance for them to have decent communication on the Internet, since they would be getting smaller blocks.

This morning the last two /8s were allocated to APNIC, triggering the last five /8s to each RIR.  ICANN coordinated w/the RIRS, ISOC and the IAB to hold a joint event to allow the community to have a ceremony and press coverage. The press coverage was held to get the story into mainstream news, radio, and TV so that everyone can know about it and move toward IPv6.  The ICANN website will have all of this information posted. The registry has been updated and the last /8s have been allocated.

AB thanked him for the overview.

8. Status of Global Policy for Post Exhaustion IPv4 Allocation Mechanisms by the IANA

This was submitted in the APNIC region on 25th Jan 2011. AB stated the copy of the proposal was sent to the list on the 26th of January.  He asked the ASO AC does it satisfy the conditions to qualify as a global policy, if accepted and ratified in all the regions, and by IANA.

AB stated he felt it would qualify.  DW agreed but stated may conflict with another proposal on the table. It may not be possible for both to reach consensus or maybe neither one to reach consensus. AB agreed but stated it was up to the RIRs to follow procedures and to decide if they accept both or one or the other. He explained that at this point, the ASO AC needed to establish whether or not the proposal could satisfy the requirements to be a valid global policy. DW felt that the proposal qualified.

JS agreed as well and supported the proposal as a qualifying global policy. But cautioned that in trying to move it through the policy process, make sure we don’t have the issue of two proposals on the same topic. He stated this happened in the past and the community accepted one and felt unable to discuss the second one, as it did not deprecate the first one.  We need to clarify how they interact with each other and how to move forward if part of the community accepts one and part of the community accepts the other.

AB replied that, formally, the ASO AC cannot make that determination, but informally, as members in the community, each person can state their own opinions.

a) It was moved by DW, and seconded by JS, that:

“Having examined the proposed global policy entitled, “Global Policy for Post Exhaustion IPv4 Allocation Mechanisms by the IANA”, the ASO AC has determined that the global policy proposal, if approved and ratified, would satisfy the conditions for classification as a global policy as defined in Section 5 of the ASO MoU.”

The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

b) Establish a Policy Proposal Facilitator Team (PPFT). This team needs to be established to follow & report on the proposal’s progress, and for the ASO AC Chair to notify the Chairs of the other ICANN Supporting Organizations (SOs) and Advisory Councils (ACs) about it.

AB called for volunteers from each region. JS, FO, HPH, TF and FA volunteered.

It was moved by NA, and seconded by SB, that:

“The AC designates JS, FO, HPH, TF, and FA to form the Policy Proposal Facilitator Team (PPFT) for this global policy proposal, and directs the PPFT to request to their respective RIR within 10 days that the policy proposal be placed in the policy forum for their region for processing in accordance with the regional policy development process.”

AB called for any objections. There were none.

The motion carried with no objections.

Sofia Silva from LACNIC joined as an observer at this time (16:30 UTC).

9. ICANN Review Teams: Related Activities Update

A) SSR RT Update.  There was no update at this time as HG was unavailable for this meeting.

B) WHOIS RT Update. There was no update at this time as WW was unavailable for this meeting.

10. Status of 2011 ICANN NomCom

There was no update at this time as WW was unavailable for this meeting.

11. Status of ASO Review

AB stated that the NRO had put out a call for independent reviewers and the 31st of January was the deadline. He had not heard any further news but stated the NRO EC will select one of the applicants to perform the independent review.

ON stated that he could provide an update on the Nominating Committee. He stated that work had started in Cartagena, during the last ICANN meeting, and is proceeding.  The closing time for statements of interest (applications) is the 4th of April.  The committee had its first conference call and is looking at approximately 33 statements that have been received. In addition, the Chair of the committee has suggested that they make an extra effort during the ICANN meeting next month in San Francisco to inform stakeholders of open meetings. The committee will get that information to the ASO AC.

AB thanked him for the update.

12. Any Other Business

AB called for any other business. There were no comments.

13. Adjournment

AB entertained a motion to adjourn at 16:42 UTC. DW moved to adjourn, seconded by FO.  The meeting was adjourned with no objections.
