I'm obviously not your intended audience with these documents, but your suggestions make a lot of sense to me. Restricting the policy document to just that, with all other supporting information in a 'guidelines' document would I feel make the former easier to read and the latter would actually provide a useful and comprehensive 'support' document for those that need it.Here is how I distinguish the two: Policy Document - Provides a set of ideas/criteria about IPv6 management - Describes the basic concept of IPv6 address management, and defines a criteria for allocations/assignments Guidelines - Provides some tips for requestors in making IPv6 requests with more specific details(like documented version of FAQs) - It does not define any criteria itself. It merely complments the idea behind the policy, possibly with some examples for specific cases - Should be easily updated, reflecting the latest situation
We are currently working on the guideline within JPNIC and planning to make a presentation in our coming Open Meeting in early July, held for the Japanese community.
This sounds great.
I think this would be very useful. Have you also considered making a presentation at the APNIC OPM in August?We are happy to share the outcome in the mailing list, and also interested to hear the opinions of the others in the list.
