Request For Discussion (RFD) -

Group name: comp.bbs.waffle

Status: Unmoderated

Charter:  This group will be for the discussion of Waffle, a multi-
          platform, USENET-capable BBS program.  Discussion topics will
          include:

          * Setting up and maintaining Waffle under MS-DOS, UNIX, and
            any other platforms to which Waffle may pe ported.

          * Add-on utilities such as off-line readers, archive-servers,
            statistics programs, etc.

          * Connectivity issues pertaining to Waffle sites (domain
            registration, UUCP maps, etc.).

          * Announcements of upcoming releases of Waffle or any of the
            major add-ons.

          * Postings of small executables (MS-DOS), sources (MS-DOS and
            UNIX), and scripts (shell, perl, etc.).  Any utility, be it
            script, source, or executable, that is too large to post as
            a single message should *not* be posted to this group.

          * Anything else pertaining to Waffle not specifically
            mentioned above.

Comments:

Due to the ever decreasing propagation of the alt.* hierarchy and the
emergence of Waffle as one of the top USENET-capable BBS programs for
both MS-DOS and UNIX platforms, the time has come to move alt.bbs.waffle
into mainstream USENET.

The issue of naming the group was discussed at length in alt.bbs.waffle
prior to this RFD.  Under MS-DOS, Waffle is primarily used as a USENET
news/mail system with a BBS as its user interface.  Under UNIX, Waffle
is a BBS only; USENET support is already "built in" to most flavors of
UNIX.  Of all the names proposed in a.b.w, comp.bbs.waffle was chosen as
the best fit into the namespace.  If during the discussion period 
comp.bbs.waffle is found to be an unacceptable group name, the best
alternative would be news.software.waffle.

Per the new group creation guidelines, discussion on this RFD will take
place in news.groups for no more than 30 days, at which time a CFV will
be posted with specific voting instructions.

Any and all comments are welcome.

Voting for comp.bbs.waffle closed at 01:00:00 EDT on Friday, April 24th
(01:00:00 because I forgot about daylight savings when I wrote the CFV...)

After manually removing 3 duplicate votes that the counting software
didn't automatically catch, there were 220 YES votes and 32 NO votes.
There were no switched votes.  Thus, comp.bbs.waffle passes both the
100 more YES than NO votes and the 2/3 rule.  If there are no
objections raised during the waiting period, a newgroup should be
sent out in a few days.

Charter:  This group will be for the discussion of Waffle, a multi-
          platform, USENET-capable BBS program.  Discussion topics will
          include:

          * Setting up and maintaining Waffle under MS-DOS, UNIX, and
            any other platforms to which Waffle may be ported.

          * Add-on utilities such as off-line readers, archive-servers,
            statistics programs, etc.

          * Connectivity issues pertaining to Waffle sites (domain
            registration, UUCP maps, etc.).

          * Announcements of upcoming releases of Waffle or any of the
            major add-ons.

          * Postings of small executables (MS-DOS), sources (MS-DOS and
            UNIX), and scripts (shell, perl, etc.) pertaining to Waffle.
	    Any utility, be it script, source, or executable, that is too
	    large to post as a single message of under 60k should _not_
	    be posted to this group.

          * Anything else pertaining to Waffle not specifically
            mentioned above.

A full list of voters follows my signature.  Times are EST/EDT.
The voter list is sorted by originating machine.

Request For Discussion (RFD) -

Group name: comp.bbs.waffle

Status: Unmoderated

Charter:  This group will be for the discussion of Waffle, a multi-
          platform, USENET-capable BBS program.  Discussion topics will
          include:

          * Setting up and maintaining Waffle under MS-DOS, UNIX, and
            any other platforms to which Waffle may pe ported.

          * Add-on utilities such as off-line readers, archive-servers,
            statistics programs, etc.

          * Connectivity issues pertaining to Waffle sites (domain
            registration, UUCP maps, etc.).

          * Announcements of upcoming releases of Waffle or any of the
            major add-ons.

          * Postings of small executables (MS-DOS), sources (MS-DOS and
            UNIX), and scripts (shell, perl, etc.).  Any utility, be it
            script, source, or executable, that is too large to post as
            a single message should *not* be posted to this group.

          * Anything else pertaining to Waffle not specifically
            mentioned above.

Comments:

Due to the ever decreasing propagation of the alt.* hierarchy and the
emergence of Waffle as one of the top USENET-capable BBS programs for
both MS-DOS and UNIX platforms, the time has come to move alt.bbs.waffle
into mainstream USENET.

The issue of naming the group was discussed at length in alt.bbs.waffle
prior to this RFD.  Under MS-DOS, Waffle is primarily used as a USENET
news/mail system with a BBS as its user interface.  Under UNIX, Waffle
is a BBS only; USENET support is already "built in" to most flavors of
UNIX.  Of all the names proposed in a.b.w, comp.bbs.waffle was chosen as
the best fit into the namespace.  If during the discussion period 
comp.bbs.waffle is found to be an unacceptable group name, the best
alternative would be news.software.waffle.

Per the new group creation guidelines, discussion on this RFD will take
place in news.groups for no more than 30 days, at which time a CFV will
be posted with specific voting instructions.

Any and all comments are welcome.
