                     Request for Discussion (RFD)

Proposed Newsgroup: comp.dcom.videoconf
Status:             unmoderated
Distribution:       worldwide
Summary:            Discussion relating to all types of Video
                    Conferencing
Proponents:         Greg Wheatley <[email protected]>


This is a formal Request for Discussion on the creation of an
unmoderated newsgroup for discussion of issues related to Video
Conferencing.  The purposes of this group include to alleviate
the volume of traffic on the VideoPhone mailing list, to provide
a  central source of information for Video Conference Information
and to minimize questions about Video Conferencing on other groups
such as comp.dcom.comp.dcom.isdn and comp.dcom.telecom.tech.

This is a Request for Discussion and is not a Call for Votes.
The discussion will last 3-4 weeks from this date (Wednesday 1
Mar., 1995). Any comments such as "I vote yes for comp.dcom.videoconf"
will be treated only as a positive reaction to the proposed charter
and not as a yes vote on the creation of the group.  If sufficient
interest isdemonstrated during the discussion period, a formal CFV
will be issued along with instruction on how to cast your vote.

This RFD has been posted in accordance with the Guidelines for
Newsgroup Creation. Its language is based on previously submitted
RFDs. The RFD is being cross-posted to the following relevant
news groups:

        news.announce.newgroups, news.groups,
        comp.dcom.telecom.tech, comp.dcom.isdn, alt.dcom.telecom
        uk.telecom

Followups to this RFD are to be posted only to news.groups, where
the actual discussion is to take place.

PROPOSED CHARTER

The comp.dcom.videoconf newsgroup will be open to discussion on
Video Conference Technology and it's applications.  Specific topics
may include, but are not necessarily limited to:

        Vendor Experiences
        Desktop Video
        Dialup VS Dedicated Circuit
        Room Design


PROCEDURE

Please post any response to this message to NEWS.GROUPS.  Ifyou use
the followup feature on your newsreader this should happen automatically.
It is important to understand that all discussions about the merits of
this proposal should occur on news.groups.

FUTURE CALL FOR VOTES

After a discussion period of 21-30 days, unless the discussion indicates
a need to resubmit a new RFD, there will be a Call For Votes (CFV) posted
to the same groups as this RFD. The voting period will be at least 21 days.
If the group passes by receiving 100 more YES votesthan NO votes and
(at least) twice as many YES votes as NO votes, it will be created.

CHARTER

comp.dcom.videoconf will be a forum dedicated to the discussion of

and distance learning is acceptable.  Specific topics may include but
not be limited to:

utilize the technology.  The increased utilization will result in more
