This newsgroup  logically fits in the newsgroup hierarchy under the name  comp.os.coherent and that is the proposed name for the group subject to discussion in news.groups.  I propose that the    group should be unmoderated, in the fashion of similar groups  such as comp.os.xinu and comp.os.minix.    The reason for this proposal is that Coherent is a significant   development in the UNIX(tm) community, as an inexpensive OS   similar to Version 7 Unix that runs on ISA architecture (AT-bus)  personal computers.  While Coherent shares many of the same  features of XINU and Minix, it also has unique characteristics   related particularly to its C compiler, its UUCP implementation,   and its device driver toolkit that indicate a need for net  discussion among users to their benefit.  Note: While Coherent  is a commercial product, this proposal was initiated without  consultation with any representative or employee of the company  that developed and is marketing Coherent.  It is not intended   that this newsgroup should be an organ of support for the   developer, but that the needs and interests of the user of   the Coherent product shall be furthered by this newsgroup.  Followup-to: news.groups  Discussion of this proposal shall continue for 30 days on news.groups  and on or about February 24, I will issue a Call for Votes to the  groups that have received this announcement, along with instructions  for casting votes and a schedule for the voting period.    Thank you for attention and interest.  -lar     From [email protected] Mon Sep 27 12:22:23 1993 Xref: rpi news.announce.newgroups:907 news.groups:22252 comp.os.mach:817 comp.os.minix:11030 comp.os.xinu:221 comp.os.misc:969 comp.unix.sysv286:164 comp.unix.sysv386:6130 comp.unix.msdos:390 comp.unix.misc:1072 Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups,news.groups,comp.os.mach,comp.os.minix,comp.os.xinu,comp.os.misc,,comp.unix.sysv286,comp.unix.sysv386,comp.unix.msdos,comp.unix.misc Path: rpi!tale From: [email protected] (Lar Kaufman) Subject: CFV:  comp.os.coherent Followup-To: news.groups Sender: [email protected] Nntp-Posting-Host: Date: 28 Feb 91 04:52:05 GMT Approved: [email protected] Lines: 38  The request for discussion period for comp.os.coherent has ended. Only one item was in any way controversial - the name of the group. It was suggested that the group should be named comp.unix.coherent. This suggestion is not adopted because (1) Coherent is not Unix, having been independently developed, and (2) the proposed group name, comp.os.coherent, is consistent with the existing hierarchy of comp newsgroups.  It is beyond the scope of the proposal to revise the hierarchy.  Accordingly, this call for votes is for an unmoderated newsgroup named comp.os.coherent.  The purpose of the group is to discuss and support the Coherent operating system and related topics.  Coherent currently resembles Unix Version 7, and is ported to ISA-architecture 80286- and 80386-based computers.  The voting period shall extend from the time of posting of this article until 11 PM GMT of March 27, 1991.  Only votes received  by me ([email protected]) before this deadline will be counted.  	 HOW TO VOTE:  The reliable way to vote is to send email to me, Lar Kaufman, at this address: [email protected]  Posted votes cannot be counted; you must send mail to me.  The vote applies only to the specific proposal to form comp.os.coherent, and will not apply to any other proposal.  The vote must be explicit and unambiguous.  I favor the form "I vote for comp.os.coherent as proposed" or "I vote against comp.os.coherent as proposed".  Please keep any further comments to a minimum.  I will be pleased to hear other remarks in a separate message.  Thank you for your interest.  Lar Kaufman            I would feel more optimistic about a bright future (voice) 512-794-9070   for man if he spent less time proving that he can (fax)   512-794-0623   outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness  [email protected]        and respecting her seniority.  - E.B.

The voting period for the CFV for an unmoderated newsgroup, comp.os.coherent, is ended.  The tally of valid votes was  339 for, 20 against (approximately 17/1).  I did not count  multiple votes by individuals or votes by otherwise unidentified "root" or "superuser" accounts; there were  about a dozen of these.  I also did not count 4 votes that were received by persons without accounts, as these votes  would not be verifiable under the guideline.  I did not  count the "abstain" vote I received.  You have 5 days to correct any errors in the voter list or  voting procedure, following the posting of this announcement in news.announce.newgroups.  I wish to thank those who voted and those who wanted to vote. I would like to extend special thanks to Curt Sampson who  put aside a considerable investment of his own time by  withdrawing an RFD for alt.coherent in order to allow this  discussion and vote to come to pass without confusion or  bickering.  -lar  Vote               Voter ---- ----------------------------------------------------  NO   "Nam c."
