Did this happen? As I understood the policy, it means we think of the ASN space as a single pool of 32 bit numbers, but continue to assign numbers under 65000 (at the discretion of the RIRs?) until we run out. The original policy proposal meant all assignments would be >=65536 as of the start of this year, but that changed to this modified sense during the policy's discussion. Others may understand it differently to I. :) Cheers, Rob -- Rob Evans JANET(UK) Development Team Twitter: https://twitter.com/JANETDev/team Work tweets: https://twitter.com/internetplumber JANET(UK) is a trading name of The JNT Association, a company limited by guarantee which is registered in England under No. 2881024 and whose Registered Office is at Lumen House, Library Avenue, Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, Didcot, Oxfordshire.
