It is proposed that a new newsgroup be created for posting Newton software.
What follows is a formal Request For Discussion.


Name of proposed new group
--------------------------
comp.binaries.newton


Status
------
moderated


Proposed moderator
------------------
roy@nyu.edu (Roy Smith)


History
-------
A small group of folks from comp.sys.newton.misc have been pre-discussing
this for a short time by email.  The intent wasn't to shut anybody out of
the process, it just seemed easier to manage.  This RFD is largely similar
to, but somewhat different from, an earlier draft circulated via email to
that group.


Charter
-------
Comp.binaries.newton is to be used for posting Newton software, both
runnable applications and source code.  Free software, shareware, and
demoware are all suitable (by demoware, I mean demo versions of commercial
applications which are artificially limited in functionality in some way).
Software might include applications, Newton Books, databases, or other
Newton-related non-textual material which, in the opinion of the moderator,
is of general interest to the Newton community.  This will not include
product announcements or items of a strictly promotional nature, but it
might include upgrades, patches, and the like.  The moderator will also
maintain ftp and gopher archives of all c.b.n postings.

The moderator will not pass judgement on the quality or usefulness of the
software.

By submitting an item for posting on comp.binaries.newton, the submitter
agrees to allow the item to be freely redistributed, including being placed
in an archive with unrestricted access, and which may very well be mirrored
on other archives beyond the control of the moderator.

Final details of the posting format have not yet been worked out, but a
clear and essential aim is to have a format which is equally useful to both
Mac/Newton and Windows/Newton users.  The current suggestion is to use
binhexed Package files for applications (there seems to be fairly good
agreement on this) and binhexed StuffIt 1.5.1 archives for source projects
(there is less firm agreement on this, pending figuring out just how useful
a format this will be for Windows-based Newton Toolkit developers).  There
are supposedly existing tools for handling binhex and StuffIt formats on a
Windows platform.

If future developments make it apparent that a change in posting format will
enable the postings to be useful to a wider audience, or more useful to the
same audience, the moderator may change the format.


Additional Information
----------------------
The Newton, at least in its current stage of development, requires the use
of either a Macintosh or a Windows PC to develop and/or download software,
and the comp.binaires.newton audience will span both communities.  The
proposed moderator lacks Windows experience, and is grateful that Matthew S
Krawitz, mkrawitz@GAS.uug.Arizona.EDU, has volunteered his assistance, in
this area.

The Hippocrates Project of NYU Medical Center (the proposed moderator's
employer) has a serious professional interest in Newton and is committed to
the effort and hardware resources necessary to ensure a well run and stable
newsgroup and archive.  I.e. this isn't just a project being done on the
side, while the boss isn't watching. :-)


Discussion
----------
Discussion ofthis proposed group will take place on news.groups starting at
the time of this posting and lasting until about January 15, 1994.


Vote
----
Assuming a productive result of the discussion period, a Call For Votes
will be conducted by neutral third parties in January.  No votes will be
accepted prior to the official CFV.  Ron Dippold (rdippold@qualcomm.com>
will be in charge of running the vote.

MODERATION INFO
---------------

The moderator will be Roy Smith, roy@mchip00.med.nyu.edu

The moderator will not pass judgement on the quality or usefulness of the
software.  By submitting an item for posting on comp.binaries.newton, the
submitter agrees to allow the item to be freely redistributed, including
being placed in an archive with unrestricted access, and which may very well
be mirrored on other archives beyond the control of the moderator.

Posting format will be up to the discretion of the moderator.  Current
plans are to use binhex and/or Stuffit 1.5.1 format archives.


CHARTER
-------

Comp.binaries.newton is to be used for posting Newton software, both
runnable applications and source code.  Free software, shareware, and
demoware are all suitable (by demoware, I mean demo versions of commercial
applications which are artificially limited in functionality in some way).

HOW TO VOTE
-----------

You should send E-MAIL (posts to a group are invalid) to:

      jamesm@dialogic.com

Just replying by E-MAIL to this message should work, assuming you are
reading this using standard newsreader software.  Your mail message 
should contain one and only one of the following statements:

      I vote YES on comp.binaries.newton
      I vote NO on comp.binaries.newton
      I ABSTAIN on comp.binaries.newton
      I CANCEL my vote on comp.binaries.newton

You may add a comment, or use other wording, but only a definite, 
unconditional, unambiguous statement for or against the creation of 
comp.binaries.newton will count as a vote.

Neither ABSTAIN nor CANCEL messages are counted as votes; they serve
only to cancel any previous vote.  Abstentions are noted in the final
vote list, whereas CANCEL removes your vote from that list entirely.
(This is the only difference between the two.)

If you later change your mind you may vote again; only your last valid
vote will count.

All votes will be acknowledged by E-mail.  If you don't receive an
acknowledgment within a few days of your vote, vote again.  It is your
responsibility to make sure your vote is registered correctly.

Standard Guidelines for voting apply: no more than one vote per person,
no more than one vote per account.  If you attempt multiple votes or 
other vote fraud, all your votes may be canceled and your name published.


RESULT
------

The complete vote list will be posted with the vote result, including
how each person voted.  Note that Usenet votes are not done by secret 
ballot.

There will then be a five-day period during which the published vote
list may be corrected and any irregularities addressed.  The 
requirements for group creation are 100 more YES votes than NO votes,
and 2/3 of all counted votes being YES.
