                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
             unmoderated group comp.graphics.api.inventor

Description:  Object-Oriented 3D Graphics in Inventor


RATIONALE

    Current discussion of Inventor pops up in several newsgroups, with no
    single obvious forum for those who wish to discuss it.  Inventor
    continues to gain popularity for a number of reasons, including its
    recent association with VRML (Virtual Reality Markup Language),
    currently under development.

CHARTER

    The comp.graphics.api.inventor newsgroup is intended for discussion
    of both Open Inventor and Iris Inventor.  Topics may include scene
    graphs (e.g. nodes, paths, fields, groups, properties), cameras &
    lights, primitives, the Inventor file format, toolkit extensions,
    manipulators, event-handling, sensors, engines and so on.  Readers
    & posters are encouraged to make use of newsgroups tailored to
    OpenGL, SGI hardware, file-formats and so on for topics not directly
    related to Inventor.

PPROPOSAL PROCESS

    For those unfamiliar with the process of newsgroup proposal, this is the
    first RFD (Request For Discussion) for this newsgroup.  After the
    proponents of this group achieve consensus on the name, location and
    charter of this group, and when 21 days have passed from the date of
    the first RFD, it may go on to CFV (Call For Votes), which will last
    for another three weeks or so.  The newsgroup will be created if there
    are at least 100 more YES votes than NO votes and 2/3 of the votes are
    YES.

    At this stage in the process we're looking for flaws in the proposal
    and are trying to get concensus about what the final ballot will be.
    If you have any reservations at all, or any chages to suggest, now is
    the time to voice your opinion.

    Follow-ups to this article should go to news.groups, and email should
    go to hollasch@acm.org.

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.graphics.api.inventor
      I vote NO on comp.graphics.api.inventor
      I ABSTAIN on comp.graphics.api.inventor
      I CANCEL my vote on comp.graphics.api.inventor

You may add a comment, or use other wording, but only a definite,
unconditional, unambiguous statement for or against the creation of
comp.graphics.api.inventor 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.
