Request For Discussion

This is a formal Request For Discussion of the creation of the
newsgroup comp.cad.autocad.  This is not a Call For Votes.  A Call For
Votes will be issued in the groups to which this message is posted
[news.announce.newgroups, alt.cad, alt.cad.autocad and
alt.architecture] 21 to 30 days from the date that this message
first appears.  Voting is to be recorded by a neutral third party.

Group Name:	comp.cad.autocad
Status:		Unmoderated
Summary:	Issues relating to the use of AutoDesk's AutoCad software
Distribution:	Worldwide
Proposed by:	Ben Olasov (olasov@shadow.cs.columbia.edu)

Charter:

The charter for comp.cad.autocad is to be essentially the
same as that for alt.cad.autocad, e.g. the discussion of issues
relating to the use of AutoDesk's AutoCad software.


Background:

The newsgroup alt.cad.autocad has been carried on Usenet for
approximately two years now with traffic in excess of 8000 messages.
The following excerpt from a recent USENET readership report [as
posted to news.lists] summarizes readership activity:

>This is the full set of data from the USENET readership report for Apr 94.
>Explanations of the figures are in a companion posting.
> 
>        +-- Estimated total number of people who read the group, worldwide.
>        |     +-- Actual number of readers in sampled population 
>        |     |     +-- Propagation: how many sites receive this group at all
>        |     |     |      +-- Recent traffic (messages per month)
>        |     |     |      |      +-- Recent traffic (kilobytes per month)
>        |     |     |      |      |      +-- Crossposting percentage
>        |     |     |      |      |      |    +-- Cost ratio: $US/month/rdr
>        |     |     |      |      |      |    |      +-- Share: % of newsrders
>        |     |     |      |      |      |    |      |   who read this group.
>        V     V     V      V      V      V    V      V
> 848  61000   447   58%   597   897.4     2%  0.01   1.0%  alt.cad.autocad

Traffic in comp.cad.autocad is expected to be primarily a continuation
of that in alt.cad.autocad, that is, questions and answers of a
technical nature and discussions of technical issues related to usages
of AutoCad within a research or industrial context.  Posting of source
code for any of AutoCad's programming extensions is both permitted and
encouraged in moderation, particularly in response to a query.
Advertising, while not encouraged, is permitted to the extent that it
constitutes valid information about the availability of relevant
technologies.  Normally, messages having a content which tends to
promote a particular product or service are acceptable only as
responses to reader queries.

A FAQ is expected to be made available soon, at which point readers
will be encouraged to refer to the FAQ prior to posting questions.

Please direct all discussion to news.groups.

		     FIRST CALL FOR VOTES (of 2)
		  unmoderated group comp.cad.autocad

Newsgroups line:
comp.cad.autocad	AutoDesk's AutoCAD software.

Votes must be received by 23:59:59 UTC, 18 August 1994.

This vote is being conducted by a neutral third party.  For voting
questions only contact rdippold@qualcomm.com.  For questions about the
proposed group contact Ben Olasov <olasov@shadow.cs.columbia.edu>.


CHARTER

The discussion of issues relating to the use of AutoDesk's AutoCad
software product.  This includes questions and answers of a technical
nature regarding, and discussions regarding, technical issues related
to usages of AutoCad within a research or industrial context.  Posting
of source code for any of AutoCad's programmiing extensions is both
permitted and encouraged in moderation, particularily in response to a
query.  Advertising, while not encouraged, is permitted to the extent
that it coonstitutes valid information about the availability of
technologies relevant to AutoCad.  Normally, messages having a content
which tends to promote a particular product or service are acceptable
only as responses to reader queries.

alt.cad.autocad is presently bidirectionally gatewayed to the Bitnet
redistribution list AUTOCAD, and will continue to be gatewayed under
the name comp.cad.autocad should the new group be created.

alt.cad.autocad is presently not carried by a large number of sites
simply by virtue of its membership in the alt hierarchy which suffers
>from a widespread perception among Internet administrators of
fostering superfluous newsgroups devoid of validity as information
resources.  As such, these negative linkages have effectively
prevented alt.cad.autocad from reaching many potential readers.  This
conclusion is evinced by a recent Usenet readership summary [posted to
news.lists] which finds that a mere 58% of Usenet sites receive
alt.cad.autocad at all.
