Eleven draft policies were discussed, two of which were moved to last call, at the recent ARIN 36 meeting held 8-9 October 2015 in Montréal, Québec.
ARIN 36 attracted over 160 attendees and from the recap, we can see the level of dialogue was high and the attendees’ insightful commentary was a valuable contribution within the ARIN policy development process.
