This document describes the reservation of Autonomous System Numbers
(ASNs) that are for Private Use only, known as Private Use ASNs, and
provides operational guidance on their use.  This document enlarges
the total space available for Private Use ASNs by documenting the
reservation of a second, larger range and updates RFC 1930 by
replacing Section 10 of that document.
