prop-102: Sparse allocation guidelines for IPv6 resource allocations

           

Proposal textprop-102-v003
Synopsis

This proposal formalises the current use of a sparse allocation strategy when allocating IPv6 resources from the APNIC free pool.  This also has the effect of bringing the algorithm and its parameters under the oversight of the APNIC policy development process.
The proposal also seeks to give members some assurance that if they are able to show a growth plan for 5 years upon applying for an initial 2 year assignment, that subsequent assignments will be allocated from a sufficiently sized, sparsely allocated block.

Current statusImplemented.
