This is a request for discussion on creation of newsgroup comp.lang.cobol.

Posted to :     news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, alt.cobol, comp.lang.misc
Follow-ups to : news.groups
Group name :    comp.lang.cobol
Status :        unmoderated


Charter :

This newsgroup is for discussion of all aspects of the use of the COBOL
programming language.  Examples of relevant topics are :

    o Good books to learn from
    o Requests for algorithms
    o Discussions of coding problems
    o Comparisons of different COBOL products
    o The COBOL standards, past, present and future
    o Object Oriented COBOL
    o Portability between COBOL on mainframes, UNIX and DOS

The group should not be used for discussions or flame wars of the ``my
language is better than your language because...'' variety which more
properly belong in /dev/null.


Rationale :

The newsgroup alt.cobol currently exists and has had increasing traffic
over the last two years.  However, the group only achieves 59% propagation
according to the July 94 USENET Readership Report, compared with over 80%
propagation for groups such as comp.lang.c and comp.lang.fortran.

Creation of comp.lang.cobol would mean that propagation would be likely
to increase and though that in itself is not a reason for the creation
of the group, it would give a greater opportunity for readers at
non-academic sites, many of which do not currently take any of the alt
hierarchy, to take part in the group. Given that, according to recent
surveys, there are many more programmers writing and maintaining COBOL
code than any other language and that most of these are at non-academic
sites, a significant increase in traffic over alt.cobol would be
expected.


Additional information :

Should this proposal result in a vote to create comp.lang.cobol passing,
it would seem logical to alias alt.cobol to comp.lang.cobol at the
time of creation.  The alt.cobol group could then be removed at some
later date.

An FAQ for the alt.cobol group already exists.  This should also be
transferred to the new group.

Note that follow-ups are redirected to news.groups only.

I will be contacting Ron Dippold regarding the use of a USENET Volunteer
Votetaker to run the vote.

Finally, as a quick summary of the group creation process, a CFV (Call for
Votes) will be posted no earlier than 21 and no later than 30 days after
this posting, should the discussion be positive.  The CFV will give
details of the voting period and how to vote.  In order for the group
to be created, there should be at least 100 more "yes" than "no" votes
and at least 2/3 of the votes should be "yes".

Just Replying should work if you are not reading this on a mailing list.

Your mail message should contain one of the following statements:
      I vote YES on comp.lang.cobol
      I vote NO on comp.lang.cobol

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.

One vote counted per person, no more than one per account. Addresses and
votes of all voters will be published in the final voting results list.
