This is a Request for Discussion for the creation of the newsgroup 
comp.infosystems.www

This group will be unmoderated.

The purpose of this group will be to exchange information and ideas
regarding the use, design and development of the World Wide Web, and
the information in the Web.

World Wide Web is an information system which is hypertext based.  It
will currently interface with both WAIS and gopher systems.  Future
plans include a move toward the use of MIME documents.  There are a
number of applications already in place for using this information
system.

The discussion period will last until March 15, 1993.  The discussion
takes place in news.groups, which is where follow-ups to this article
will go.  The purpose of the discussion is to agree on the charter of
the group, its name, and other exciting details.  Please do not send
votes; if the discussion so indicates, a separate call for votes will
be issued.

CHARTERS

comp.infosystems.www.misc (unmoderated) will provide a forum for general
discussion of WWW (World Wide Web)- related topics that are NOT covered
by the other newsgroups in the hierarchy. This will likely include
discussions of the Web's future, politicking regarding changes in the
structure and protocols of the web that affect both clients and servers,
et cetera. If this group passes, the group comp.infosystems.www will 
be removed after three months, giving traffic time to move to the new group.

comp.infosystems.www.providers (unmoderated) will provide a forum for
the discussion of WWW server software and the use of said software
to present information to users. General server design, setup questions,
server bug reports, security issues, HTML page design and other concerns 
of information providers are among the likely topics for this group.

comp.infosystems.www.users (unmoderated) will provide a forum for the
discussion of WWW client software and its use in contacting various
Internet information sources. New user questions, client setup
questions, client bug reports, resource-discovery questions on how to
locate information on the web that can't be found by the means
detailed in the FAQ and comparison between various client packages are
among the acceptable topics for this group.


BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE:

Since the creation of comp.infosystems.www, traffic has steadily
increased to the point where many users now voice the complaint that
it is no longer possible to keep up with the volume, which can
exceed a hundred messages per day. Splitting the group has been
a popular topic of discussion of late.

In addition, there is a clear means of subdividing the group, since
nearly all concerns of WWW posters can be divided into user
issues (Mosaic, Lynx, other clients, connectivity questions) and 
provider issues (issues of interest to information providers, such
as web servers and HTML page design). There is a clear division
between these two categories in the messages posted to
comp.infosystems.www. comp.infosystems.www.misc catches the
rest, including, but not limited to, "futures" discussion.

Each group will be voted upon separately; see below.
