This is why there has been some discussion on how to split the group. Now the ideas on this are becoming clearer, i think it's time to make that discussion official.  Note: all discussion should take place in news.groups . It is inevitable that some of it will leak into comp.sys.acorn, but don't make it too bad.  What follows is a summary of the groups proposed, and some of the points concerning these new groups.   comp.sys.acorn.advocacy comp.sys.acorn.irrelevant (half :-))    Flamewars and uninteresting discussions can be redirected here.   This was the main reason why a split was proposed.  comp.sys.acorn.announce moderated    Announcements, press releases, FAQ lists, FTP lists. We need to find a   moderator (Alan Glover has half volunteered, but maybe there are others?)  comp.sys.acorn.tech comp.sys.acorn.hardware comp.sys.acorn.software    Technical discussions.   The main point here seems to be: do we want a single .tech group, or   two groups, .hardware and .software? (Maybe we want all?)  comp.sys.acorn comp.sys.acorn.misc    General talk and discussion.   Will we move c.s.a to c.s.a.misc, or do we just create the new groups and   leave the name of c.s.a unchanged?   Postings about all Acorn machines, from the humble System I up to the R260 and A5000 will be appropriate in all of the above groups, as well as postings concerning all aspects and uses of the ARM chips.  I hope we can have a quick and good discussion on this, so we can start voting in the first half of June (the guidelines have no lower limit on the discussion time, but we should have things sorted out in 30 days, according to them). If the voting period lasts three weeks and the groups pass, they can be created before July. But knowing Usenet, it will be later...  I won't be able to take the votes (exams and such...). Volunteers? --  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Here are our contestants:  1) CREATE comp.sys.acorn.advocacy    Description: Why my Acorn computer or program is better than yours. Or not.     Charter: Here you can hold long debates why the ARM610 is better than the    586, why Translator's user interface is so very bad (or good!), or why    Acorn should lower their prices. If you hold your wars here, the people who    want to actually *do* things can get on with their work in the other Acorn    groups.  2) CREATE comp.sys.acorn.announce moderated Alan Glover <[email protected]>    Description: Announcements of interest to Acorn and ARM users. (Moderated)     Charter: This will be a low-noise group in which announcements about    (products for) Acorn computers or the ARM can be made, as well as    additions to public archives, FAQ lists, virus alerts etc.  3) CREATE comp.sys.acorn.tech    Description: Programming aspects and hardware of Acorn and ARM products.     Charter: This group is for discussion among people who develop hard- and    software for or with Acorn computers or ARM chips. Non-technical    discussions belong in comp.sys.acorn.misc (or comp.sys.acorn, if .misc    is not created).  4) RENAME comp.sys.acorn TO comp.sys.acorn.misc    Description: The Acorn computer.     Charter: This group is for discussion among users of Acorn computers.    General Q&A belong here, as well as everything that doesn't fall under    one of the other acorn groups. Lengthy discussions on the merits of one    computer or piece of software over the other should move to .advocacy .   If you want to vote, please reply to this article (including its body), remove everything except the ballot below, and replace the X's by Y (Yes), N (No) or A (Abstain), depending on your choice.  ============================ BALLOT ============================     vote-01: [X] Create comp.sys.acorn.advocacy    vote-02: [X] Create comp.sys.acorn.announce moderated    vote-03: [X] Create comp.sys.acorn.tech    vote-04: [X] Rename comp.sys.acorn to comp.sys.acorn.misc ================================================================  The voting address is [email protected], and voting is open from now until Friday 10 July 1992, 23:59:59 GMT. Yes, this is long, but during the last week of the vote i will be on holiday, so i'll return just in time to count the votes. You are encouraged to vote before 3 July, so i can ask you for information if your vote is unclear in some way.  Please keep the keyword "CFV" in the subject header, that makes it easier for me to separate the votes from the normal mail.  Voters will receive an automagic acknowledgement of their vote (unless my vote processing script would break down, of course).  Unless i'm in a bad mood, i will also accept votes in a different format (as long as they are unambiguous and unconditional, i.e. "Yes, if..." type votes will be treated as comments and not counted).  Voting "AAAA" is the same as not sending any vote, except that you get your name listed in the list of the results.  If you change your mind, you can send your new vote to me in the same way. The vote with the last date stamp will count.  A proposal passes if it has 100 more yes than no votes, and there are at least twice as many yes as no votes for it. The four votes are separate, with the logical exception that if all of 1..3 fail, 4 (rename to .misc) will not be executed, even if it passes.  Thank you. May the best newsgroups win!

THE RESULTS FROM THE USENET JURY:  c.s.a.advocacy PASSED with 151 votes for,  50 against and  16 abstentions. c.s.a.announce PASSED with 189 votes for,  24 against and   4 abstentions. c.s.a.tech     PASSED with 174 votes for,  32 against and  11 abstentions. c.s.a.misc     FAILED with 138 votes for,  57 against and  22 abstentions.  So, comp.sys.acorn.advocacy, comp.sys.acorn.announce and comp.sys.acorn.tech will all be created, and the renaming of comp.sys.acorn to comp.sys.acorn.misc will not take place.  The newgroup control messages will be sent out by David Lawrence after the usual five day waiting period, during which corrections to the vote list can be made.   Charters of the groups which have passed the voting procedure:  1) comp.sys.acorn.advocacy    Description: Why my Acorn computer or program is better than yours. Or not.     Charter: Here you can hold long debates why the ARM610 is better than the    586, why Translator's user interface is so very bad (or good!), or why    Acorn should lower their prices. If you hold your wars here, the people who    want to actually *do* things can get on with their work in the other Acorn    groups.  2) comp.sys.acorn.announce moderated Alan Glover <[email protected]>    Description: Announcements of interest to Acorn and ARM users. (Moderated)     Charter: This will be a low-noise group in which announcements about    (products for) Acorn computers or the ARM can be made, as well as    additions to public archives, FAQ lists, virus alerts etc.  3) comp.sys.acorn.tech    Description: Programming aspects and hardware of Acorn and ARM products.     Charter: This group is for discussion among people who develop hard- and    software for or with Acorn computers or ARM chips. Non-technical    discussions belong in comp.sys.acorn .  4) comp.sys.acorn - rename failed, stays the same  Thanks go to the following people who voted:  +---- Create comp.sys.acorn.advocacy |+--- Create comp.sys.acorn.announce ||+-- Create comp.sys.acorn.tech |||+- Rename comp.sys.acorn to comp.sys.acorn.misc vvvv YYYN 10-06-1992 03:03:39 2105995 <[email protected]> YYYY 10-06-1992 08:55:29 A.J.D.Hurley <[email protected]> YYYY 30-06-1992 10:24:00 A.M.
