  • Thread-topic: [ppml] PI addressing in IPv6 advances in ARIN
  • User-agent: Microsoft-Entourage/11.2.3.060209
    • 
      My first idea was submitting a PI IPv6 policy proposal next Monday to RIPE
      and the rest of the regions, trying to get a consensus for a "global" policy
      on this, but as this thread is being followed up in several mail exploders,
      to avoid a long cross-posting, I think it will be better to start some
      discussion already in a mailing list which is global, and actually I think
      we have the right one ... global-v6 at lists dot apnic dot net
      
      So, if you aren't subscribed in the global-v6 at lists dot apnic dot net, and you're
      interested in this thread, please subscribe at
      http://mailman.apnic.net/mailman/listinfo/global-v6
      
      If you're late because the Eastern, the archives are also available at
      http://www.apnic.net/mailing-lists/global-v6/

      Jordi
