This is a Request For Discussion on the creation of a newsgroup
dedicated to ray tracing issues;  software (POV-Ray, Vivid, etc.), 
sources, techniques, hints and tips, utilities, etc.  This is in 
response to the discussion in comp.graphics over the last month or 
so, and more recently, in alt.config (an alt. group was originally 
considered but eventually rejected in favour of a comp. group).  
Following the general consensus so far, I propose that the group be 
called comp.graphics.raytracing and be unmoderated.  

A mailing list does already exist that covers dkbtrace (the predecessor 
to POV-Ray) but it is specific to that package alone.  Most people who 
have entered the debate so far consider the creation of a group to be a 
Good Thing despite the existing mailing list.  If the proposal gets to 
the voting stage, I intend to inform the subscribers of the list to give 
them the opportunity to vote if they so wish.

Note: Followups directed to news.groups


Cheers
Andy Wardley

CHARTER

          comp.graphics.raytracing is dedicated to the discussion
          of ray tracing and the software tools and methods available
          for generating photorealistic 3d graphics.  

          For example:

            o Ray tracing software (POV-Ray, Vivid, etc.).  

            o Implementations and algorithms for ray tracing.
 
            o Modelling software *specifically* for generating ray tracing 
              scenes (Moray, POVcad, etc.).  Discussion of general modelling
              software, CAD, etc., is not appropriate.

            o Miscellaneous utilities, methods and issues.  
              - Converting between formats
              - Generating complex scene information
              - Designing Textures
              - Creating and using fonts
              - Tessellating surfaces
              - etc.
              
          The specific focus on ray tracing does not necessarily exclude 
          the discussion of other illumination algorithms and rendering 
          techniques (radiosity, etc.).  

          The group is primarily aimed at the user level, although some
          technical discussion of algorithms, implementations, etc., is
          appropriate.  Other newsgroups such as comp.graphics.algorithms
          are more suitable for in-depth discussions of these issues.

          Binaries should not be posted to the group.  Pictures should be 
          posted to alt.binaries.pictures.misc and executables to the 
          appropriate comp.binaries group.  Scene description files 
          ("source") may be posted to the group.


HOW TO VOTE

Send MAIL to:   [email protected]
Just Replying should work if you are not reading this on a mailing list.

Your mail message should contain one and only one of the following
statements:
      I vote YES on comp.graphics.raytracing
      I vote NO on comp.graphics.raytracing

You may also ABSTAIN in place of YES/NO - this will not affect the outcome.
Anything else may be rejected by the automatic vote counting program.  The
votetaker will respond to your received ballots with a personal acknowledge-
ment by mail - if you do not receive one within several days, try again.
It's your responsibility to make sure your vote is registered correctly.

Only one vote per person and per account will be counted.  Addresses and
votes of all voters will be published in the final voting results list.

There were 480 YES votes and 24 NO votes, for a total of 504 valid votes. 
There was 1 abstain and 4 invalid ballots.

For group passage, YES votes must be at least 2/3 of all valid (YES and NO)
votes.   There also must be at least 100 more YES votes than NO votes.
