Subject: [apnic-talk] [Apnic-announce] Document update: Policies for historical Internet resources in the APNIC Whois Database
From: APNIC Secretariat
Date: Wed, 15 Dec 2004 15:53:49 +1000
APNIC seeks final editorial comments on the following draft policy

* Policies for historical Internet resources in the APNIC Whois

This draft gathers all policies that apply to historical Internet
resources into a single document.

The draft document, which is now provisionally active, is available at:


The document includes two new policy proposals that were adopted by
consensus at APNIC 17 and approved by the Executive Council on 14 May

    - The protection of historical Internet resource records in the
      APNIC Whois Database [prop-018-v001]
    - The recovery of unused historical address space [prop-017-v001]

Details of the original proposals and links to discussions are available


The document also integrates two existing policies:

    - The "No Questions Asked" prefix return policy (previously
      documented in APNIC-072)
    - Policies for the transfer of historical Internet resources
      (previously documented in APNIC-113)

Nature of the document review
This is an editorial review only. The APNIC community has already reached
consensus on the policy issues which are to implemented.

Therefore, during the comment period, interested parties may:

  - object to the draft document on the grounds that it does not
    properly reflect the consensus decision reached in the Policy
    Review Process;
  - suggest improvements of any aspect of the document;
  - request that an additional call for comment be made to allow
    more consideration of substantial revisions.

Deadline for comments
Your comments are requested by 14 January 2004. Please send your
comments to the sig-db mailing list. Details at:
