- LAC-2012-10 - Allocation of IPv6 address blocks larger than a /32

does not affect the spirit of the proposal ("binary boundaries" was 
replaced by "hexadecimal boundaries")
- LAC-2012-12 - Eliminating requirement for initial IPv4 End-User 
requests (Pedro R. Torres Jr.) – Reached consensus with a minor 
modification in the Spanish version of the title (the word

when available (Flavio Marcelo Amaral) - Abandoned by the author.

The day ended with a gala dinner to which all participants were invited.

six years: Ernesto Majó, Adriana Rivero, Florencia Bianchi, Paula Manci

The dinner featured a spectacular show by Ruben Rada, a world-renowned 
Uruguayan singer-songwriter who was awarded the 2011 Latin Grammy 
Lifetime Achievement Award. Photographs of the party will be published 
on Thursday at the event's website.
