From: IANA [iana@ISI.EDU] Sent: Wednesday, July 14, 1999 12:32 PM To: iana-announce@ISI.EDU Cc: 'iana' Subject: Delegation of IPv6 address space Internet Community, After much discussion concerning the policy guidelines for the deployment of IPv6 addresses, in addition to the years of technical development done throughout the Internet community, the IANA has delegated the initial IPv6 address space to the regional registries in order to begin immediate worldwide deployment of IPv6 addresses. We would like to thank the current Regional Internet Registries (RIR) for their invaluable work in the construction of the policy guidelines, which seem to have general consensus from the Internet community. We would also like to thank the efforts of the IETF community and the support of the IAB in making this effort a reality. If you have further questions concerning this issue, please contact your RIR, or you may also contact the IANA at firstname.lastname@example.org. The policy guidelines can be found online at one of the Regional Internet Registries: http://www.apnic.net http://www.arin.net http://www.ripe.net This is an historic moment in the continued development of the Internet. Thank you for your valuable support and participation in the Internet community.
