REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION

This is a request for discussion on the creation of a newsgroup
concerning synthesis.  It will allow participaants to exchange
information on synthesis tools, methods to enhance productivity,
report bugs and ask for solutions, language dependent problems, etc.

Group Name:

	comp.cad.synthesis

Status:

	Unmoderated

Rationale:

	There are many designers and software developers currently
	using a variety of synthesis tools such as Synopsys,
	Silc-Sync, Cadence synthesis and a variety of home-grown ones.
	These have bugs, problems if not used in a proper fashion. The
	solutions have to be found the hard way, i.e but going through
	the design and finding what we get is not what we wanted. This
	group may help in solving "re-inventing" solutions by
	discussions among users similar to comp.lang.verilog and
	comp.lang.vhdl.  Academic developments can be discussed.

Discussion:

	Comments on this proposed new newsgroup should be posted to the
	USENET Newsgroup "news.groups".  If the reader is not able to
	do so, comments may be e-mailed to the proposer, at the address
	below.

Voting:

	If no problems arise, voting will start 1 month from the
	posting date of this RFD.

                   ---------------------------

This is a Call For Votes (CFV) for the creation of comp.cad.synthesis
Instructions on casting votes is mentioned towards the middle of this post.

DISCUSSION

     A Request For Discussion (RFD) for the group  comp.cad.synthesis  was
     issued  on  April 13.  The  name,
     status and charter of the new group were not objected to.

STATUS

     comp.cad.synthesis will be a unmoderated group.

CHARTER

     The purpose of the newsgroup  "comp.cad.synthesis"   would
     be  for  exchange of information (and tools) to help designers
     and software developers ( commercial and academic )
     in the field of logic synthesis.

       Discussions could pertain to issues such as:

       - Logic Synthesis development
       - Exchange ideas about effective ways to use commercial synthesis tools
       - Moving from Verilog/VHDL towards synthesis
       - Analog HDL and Synthesis
     
     It is anticipated that readers of the group would   be  Logic and
     ASIC designers, Software Designers, Students  and  Professors
     who are doing research in the field of Logic synthesis and maybe
     Software Vendors having products in this field.


VOTING

     The voting period will begin when this CFV is posted. It will end
     on June 17, 1993 at 23:59 PDT. According to the USENET rules, in
     order for the group to be created, at least 2/3 of the votes cast
     must be YES votes, and there must be at least 100 more YES votes
     than NO votes.
     
     To vote YES or NO please send to the following address
     
          [email protected]

     Please include your full name.

     The contents of the message should contain the line "I vote
     for/against comp.cad.synthesis as proposed". 

     Email messages sent to the above addresses must constitute unambiguous and
     unconditional votes for/against newsgroup creation as proposed.
     Conditional votes will not be accepted.  Only votes emailed to
     the above addresses will be counted; mailed replies to this post-
     ing will be returned. In the event that more than one vote is
     placed by an individual, only the most recent vote will be count-
     ed.  Please include your full name if your mailer doesn't do this
     for you.

     Two additional CFV's will be posted during the course of the
     vote, along with acknowledgments of those votes received to date.
     No information will be supplied as to how people are voting until
     the final acknowledgment is made at the end, at which time the
     full vote will be made public.

SCHEDULE

     This CFV was issued on May 19, and the voting period will end on
     June 17, 1993 at 23:59 PDT.
