NAME  	comp.binaries.acorn - worldwide *moderated* distribution of programs 			      (either in source or binary form) for Acorn 			      machines (both Archimedes and BBC).  MODERATION  	The group shall be moderated.  Alan Glover ([email protected]) has 	volunteered to be the moderator.  REASON  	About two months ago, the newsgroup comp.sys.acorn was created.  The 	group was (and still is) intended for the discussion of computers made 	by Acorn, and computers based on the Acorn RISC Machine (ARM).  Right 	from the start, a sort-of holy war started on whether or not (large) 	binary and source postings should be posted to the group, or that a 	seperate group should be created for this purpose.  Almost everyone 	familiar with the eunet.micro.acorn group said that posting binaries 	was okay since it had always been done like that.  	However, the number of binary/source postings in comp.sys.acorn has 	grown far beyond any acceptable level, and the creation of the group 	comp.acorn.binaries is called for.  (For instance, on January 10th, my 	site had received 725760 bytes in comp.sys.acorn in 1991,  626355 	bytes being binary postings.  That is a 86 percent!)

PLEASE read all of this article before trying to cast a vote.  NAME AND CHARTER  	comp.binaries.acorn	moderated distribution of binaries for 				Acorn machines.  	comp.sources.acorn	moderated distribution of sources for 				Acorn machines.  MODERATION  	Alan Glover ([email protected]) has volunteered to moderate 	both groups.  RATIONALE  	The stream of binaries flooding comp.sys.acorn has become too 	large (comp.sys.acorn is a discussion-only group: even a single 	binary is too much).  Hence a comp.binaries.acorn newsgroup is 	called for.  To ensure high quality this group shall be 	moderated.  	It seems normal for a binaries group to be accompanied by a 	sources group; hence a comp.sources.acorn seems to be called 	for as well.  It too shall be moderated.  	It is unclear whether desktop applications sources with lots 	of binary resource files should be posted to a sources or 	binaries group.  It is also unclear whether such sources should 	be excluded from the binaries group.  From the discussion it 	appeared that all this is a matter of taste.  It doesn't seem 	all that relevant.  VOTING PERIOD  	The voting period will start on the day this article appears in 	news.announce.newgroups.  The voting period will end at the 	end of the 21st day (GMT) since the voting started.  HOW TO VOTE  	A valid vote is a line or sentence containing two key 	elements:  	 - one or more newsgroup names (either `comp.binaries.acorn' 	   or `comp.sources.acorn' or both).  	 - whether you vote for or against the creation of those 	   newsgroups.  	A vote which does not contain both elements is not valid and 	will be ignored without notice.  	It is encouraged to vote on both newsgroups.  It is allowed to 	send more than one valid vote as long as a previous valid vote 	on a newsgroup is not duplicated or contradicted (in which case 	the original vote holds and any duplicate or contradiction is 	ignored without notice).  	Mail your votes to [email protected]  HOW TO VOTE (REALLY)  	Send me ([email protected]) a mail containing the following:  		comp.binaries.acorn:  		comp.sources.acorn:   	where `' should be substituted by `for', `against' or 	something similar.  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS  	I will post intermediate mass acknowledgements to 	comp.sys.acorn and news.groups a few times.
