This is a Request For Discussion (RFD) regarding creation of an unmoderated
newsgroup for discussing all aspects of computing related to the VMEbus
and VMEbus-based systems:

    comp.sys.vmebus	   Discussions on hardware and software for VMEbus.


The VMEbus is one of the more popular standards for developing
open-architecture applications based on off-the-shelf hardware.  Many hardware
components, operating systems, and applications are based on this standard, yet
there currently is no USENET group where discussions of this standard,
and related items, are appropriate.

The proposal is to create comp.sys.vmebus as a forum for discussing issues
related to developing VMEbus-based systems.  This includes discussion on the
VMEbus Specification; VMEbus-based hardware, such as CPU boards and I/O devices;
secondary buses such as VSB, VXI, and VMX; open-architecture applications based
on the VMEbus; and hardware-dependent software, such as device drivers and bus
communication protocols.  The group is also available for questions and
answers, so that developers of VMEbus-based hardware and software can get
feedback or help with any problems they may encounter.

Discussions should not be about hardware-independent software which use the
VMEbus, such as the operating system or language being used, as there are other
comp.* newsgroups dedicated to those functions.

The discussion on this proposal will take place in news.groups.

Please see the pertinent postings in news.answers and news.announce.newgroups
for the rules that will be followed in creating a newsgroup
(cf. <[email protected]>).

This is the 2nd Request for Discussion (RFD) regarding creation of an
unmoderated newsgroup 'comp.sys.vmebus' for discussing all aspects of computing
related to the VMEbus and VMEbus-based systems.

So far the following summarizes what has been discussed on news.groups about
the proposed creation of comp.sys.vmebus:

1- No objections yet.  Some say this newsgroup is long overdue.

2- Naming the newsgroup 'comp.sys.vme' VS. 'comp.sys.vmebus'.
    The shorter name was recommended by one netter, saying that it is a common
    abbreviation.  However, not everyone agrees since VMEbus is the official
    name, and VME is the name of a mainframe operating system.  Based on this,
    I plan on keeping the name 'comp.sys.vmebus' when we have the Call for
    Votes (CFV).

3- One person recommends that the charter of the newgroup be expanded to
    include other buses related to VMEbus, such as Futurebus+.
    Additional discussion on this point is encouraged.  

All discussions should take place in news.groups.

The Call for Votes will occur on Oct. 17 at the earliest, according to the
USENET rules for creating a new newsgroup.  
(cf.  <[email protected]>).

This is a Call for Votes for the creation of a new newsgroup for discussing
VMEbus systems and related topics. The specifics of the proposed newsgroup are
given below, followed by the voting intructions and rules.


    Name:	comp.arch.bus.vmebus

    Purpose:    Discussions of hardware and software for VMEbus Systems.

    Status:	Unmoderated

    Charter:    The newsgroup 'comp.arch.bus.vmebus' is a forum for discussing
		issues related to developing VMEbus-based systems.  This
		includes discussion of VMEbus-based hardware, such as CPU
		boards and I/O devices; the VMEbus specification; any alternate
		or secondary buses supported by the VMEbus International Trade
		Association (VITA) which includes FutureBus+, VSB, VXI, and
		VMX; open-architecture applications based on the VMEbus; and
		hardware-dependent software, such as device drivers and bus
		communication protocols.  The group is also available for
		questions and answers, so that developers of VMEbus-based
		hardware and software can get feedback or help with any
		problems they may encounter.

		Discussions should not be about hardware-independent software
		which use the VMEbus, such as the operating system or language
		being used, as there are other comp.* newsgroups dedicated to
		those functions.


Voting Instructions:

    All votes should be sent to <[email protected]>.
    Be sure to include the word "vote" in the subject line.

    If you want the group 'comp.arch.bus.vmebus' to be created, 
    include the text:

	"I vote YES for the creation of comp.arch.bus.vmebus."

    If you feel the group 'comp.arch.bus.vmebus' should not be created, 
    include the text:

	"I vote NO for the creation of comp.arch.bus.vmebus."


Voting Rules:

    - One vote per person. If you vote more than once, only the *last* of 
	those votes will count.  Therefore if you change your mind about
	the vote, you can send a new vote, which invalidates the old vote,
	as long as it is within the voting period.

    - Ambiguous votes will be invalidated.
	Ambiguous votes contain neither YES nor NO, or contain both,
	or are conditional, such as "I vote ... if ..."

    - Votes posted to any newsgroup will NOT be counted.

    - According to the USENET rules, in order for the new group to be created,
	at least 2/3 of the votes must be "YES", and there must be at least 100
	more "YES" votes than "NO" votes.

    - For more details on the voting rules being followed, refer to article
	<[email protected]> in news.announce.newgroups.

Voting period:

    Votes will be collected for a period beginning when this CFV is approved
    for publication in news.announce.newgroups and ending at midnight on
    Tuesday November 10, 1992.  Votes received after the expiration of the
    voting period will be discarded.

Below is the result of votes received in the comp.arch.bus.vmebus
new group vote as of 00:01 EST  11 November 1992.

Vote Tabulation:

	258 votes received
	 12 simple duplicates reduced to one each

	 19 no
	227 yes
	-------------
	246 total

	227 yes
      -  19 no
	-------------
	208 margin  (more than 100 more yes than no!)

	227 / 246 = 0.920 = 92.0%  (more than 2/3 [67%] in favor!)

Having met the declared criteria, it appears that the vote for
comp.arch.bus.vmebus has passed.

The list of voters, grouped by how they voted, and sorted by the "From:" line
of their email, appears below.  If there are no substantial changes to the
recorded votes within the 5 days from the posting of this article, the group
creation message will be issued by David Lawrence ([email protected]).

During the vote, 4 ambiguous ballots were received (with no indication of yes
or no in the headers or the message.) Simple email informing the voter that the
votes could not be counted were sent, and in each case a new valid vote
was sent by the voter.

Thanks to everyone who voted, and I look forward to some interesting
discussions in the future.
