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 [email protected]

The policy guidelines can be found online at one of the Regional
Internet
Registries:

This is an historic moment in the continued development of the
Internet.

Thank you for your valuable support and participation in the
Internet
community.
