This is a request for discussion of the proposal to create an
unmoderated Usenet newsgroup called "comp.databases.object".  This
name is not final; other suggestions are welcome during the discussion.

This announcement is cross-posted to newsgroups whose readers may have 
interest in the discussion about the new group; follow-up discussion will
take place in "news.groups". 


PURPOSE

The proposed newsgroup "comp.databases.object" is intended to serve as
a medium for the sharing of knowledge about systems which combine
object-oriented technology with that of database management systems.


CONTENT

The "comp.databases.object" newsgroup would provide a forum for the
discussion of issues surrounding the recent introduction of object-
oriented database management systems.  It would provide a means whereby
people with experience in these systems can share their knowledge; it
would also give the growing number of people who are exploring this new
field an opportunity to ask questions and provoke discussions concerning
the suitability of object-oriented databases for the solution of
specific problems.

The new newsgroup would also serve as a forum for discussing ongoing
research into object-oriented databases, OODB programming interfaces and
query languages, and related projects such as deductive and multimedia
databases.

The newsgroup could also provide for discussion of systems which are not
technically object-oriented database management systems, but which offer
some form of persistent object storage; or, conversely, which are full
database management systems that offer some object-oriented features.


RATIONALE

Currently, discussion concerning object-oriented databases is scattered
across a number of newsgroups, mainly comp.databases and comp.object.
A new newsgroup would centralize this discussion, avoiding repetition
and encouraging those with something to say by providing a newsgroup
which is obviously the "right" one for this topic.


ISSUES

The following questions should be resolved during the discussion:

1.  Is the name "comp.databases.object" the best one?

2.  Should the new group come under the comp.databases hierarchy at
    all, or would it be better placed under comp.object?

    2a.  Should we implement multiple inheritance in Usenet?  (:-)

3.  What should our attitude be toward vendor publicity?  (This
    should be a guideline only, since we probably don't want a
    moderated group -- but we can consider that too, if desired.)

4.  Would there be enough contributors (and not just readers) to the
    new group to warrant its creation?


DISCUSSION PERIOD AND VOTE

The discussion period will be from 21 January 1993 to 18 February 1993.
Please post all discussion in "news.groups", cross-posting as appropriate.
If a consensus is reached by the end of the discussion period, a CFV 
(Call for Votes) will be posted at that time.  The voting period, in
accordance with Usenet guidelines, will last for 30 days.

This is a CALL FOR VOTES for or against the creation of a new,
unmoderated Usenet newsgroup called "comp.databases.object".

Following the thirty-day discussion period just ended, it is proposed 
that the group comp.databases.object be created as a vehicle for 
discussions on all systems that combine the object paradigm with 
database storage features (including, but by no means limited to, 
commercially-available object-oriented database management systems).

If you wish to vote for or against the creation of this newsgroup,
please read on.


THE VOTE

To vote for or against the creation of comp.databases.object, send 
an E-mail message to the following address:

Internet:  [email protected]
UUCP:      ...!uunet!dialogic!procor!jamesm

The wording of the message can be anything you like, as long as it is
an *unambiguous* vote for or against the creation of the newsgroup.
Suggested wording:

    "I vote FOR the creation of comp.databases.object as proposed."
 
    "I vote AGAINST the creation of comp.databases.object as proposed."

Only votes *mailed* to the above address will count.  (Votes posted to
the net will not be counted.)  Any ambiguous wording, such as "I vote
for comp.databases.object, as long as ...", or "I vote NO unless ...",
will not count.

VOTING PERIOD:  Votes will be accepted from now through 19 March 1993.
Votes postmarked after 19 March 1993 will not be counted.  At least 
once during the voting period, a reminder Call For Votes will be posted 
to the net.  Also, at least once during the voting period, I will post 
a "mass acknowledgment" of votes.  This is a list of people whose votes 
have been received (but not how they voted).  Watch out for this list; 
if you have voted, but are not on the list, send your vote again.  
(Don't worry, only one vote per person will count.)  If you have not
voted, but your name is on the list, complain loudly!

AFTER THE VOTE:  Shortly after 19 March 1993, the results will be
posted to the net.  This will consist of a list of all those who voted,
and how they voted.  Make sure that your vote is properly recorded
here; there is a five-day grace period during which you can correct
the record.

After the five-day period, the vote is final.  If the "YES" votes
outnumber the "NO" votes by a 2:1 ratio, and also by a margin of 100
votes or more, then the news.announce.newgroups moderator will send
out a message for the creation of comp.databases.object.  If the "YES"
votes fail to attain this margin of victory, then under the Usenet
guidelines, the idea of the comp.databases.object newsgroup will not
be entertained again for at least another six months.

If you have an opinion for or against the creation of the group
comp.databases.object, please vote.  If you have questions or problems,
E-mail me.

login name, as taken from the "From:" line of the vote message.
(Note that some UUCP bang path addresses are slightly mangled.)  No
indication of how people voted, or how the vote is going in general,
will be given until after voting closes.
