Hi AUSNOG members

At APNIC's 25 Open Policy Meeting in two weeks, the community will be
discussing a number of proposals related to the depletion of
remaining unallocated IPv4 address pool. If your network will need
more IPv4 addresses in the next few years, these proposals will
affect you.

In the lead up to APNIC 25, the community is currently discussing
the proposals on the APNIC Policy SIG mailing list. Policy is driven
by input from the community. So I encourage you to read the
discussions to date and add your thoughts to the Policy SIG mailing
list. We need to know what you want so APNIC policies best meet your
