This is a formal Request For Discussion regarding the establishment of
a newsgroup to deal with graphic source written in the PostScript
language.

This announcement is cross-posted to newsgroups whose readers may have
interest in the discussion about the new group; follow-up discussion
will take place in "news.groups". Suggestions, comments, and problems
may also be emailed to me at <jgm@cs.brown.edu>.

REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION
----------------------

NEWSGROUP

  comp.sources.postscript          (moderated)

PURPOSE

  A sources group where PostScript programs of generally useful
  graphic images and utilities can be posted.

RATIONALE

  Use of graphics is very popular in document-making, and a
  great deal of effort is spent in creating PostScript graphics.
  There is no general forum to share or request these graphics.

  A share space is also needed for utilities and example code
  for PostScript programmers. Comp.lang.postscript is a discussion
  newsgroup, and people rightly refrain from posting source code
  there because it would increase the non-discussion aspects of the group
  to the point that many PostScript non-programmers would not read it.

CONTENT

  Source code written in the PostScript language would be appropriate.
  Except for fonts, programs in other languages would not be, even if
  they produce PostScript.

  Clip Art:   Hand-made PostScript programs, converted binaries,
              or the machine generated output from a drawing tools,
              representing a graphical image meant to be included in
              documents. (Other art would usually be fine.)

  Utilities:  Hand-made PostScript programs either demonstrating or
              facilitating use of the PostScript graphics language.
              "How-to" examples would be encouraged.

  Fonts:      Fonts that can be used with the PostScript language.

  The focus should be on generally useful programs or art. Specific
  information, such as a new weathermap in PostScript posted daily, is
  more like a binary than a source, and would not be appropriate.

  Text documents formatted in PostScript would not be appropriate.

  EPS conversion, DSC conformance, and commented code would be
  facilitated and encouraged, but not required.

NAME

  "comp.sources.postscript"    follows other comp.sources.* groups.

MODERATED

  Comp.sources.postscript should be moderated to limit noise,
  and to increase the ease of archiving and retrieving source code.
  Comp.sources.* groups are usually moderated.

MODERATOR

  Jonathan Monsarrat (jgm@cs.brown.edu) is an experienced PostScript
  programmer. He maintains the comp.lang.postscript FAQ.
  He is currently the only volunteer.

NEWSGROUP CREATION

  The discussion period will begin when posted and end on December 24th.

  Please post all discussion to news.groups.

  If a consensus is reached by the end of the discussion period,
  a CFV (Call for Votes) will be posted at that time. The voting
  period would last for 30 days.

  I am looking for a volunteer to handle vote-taking (if a CFV occurs),
  because I am biased in favor of creation of the newsgroup.

NEWSGROUP

  comp.sources.postscript          (moderated)

PURPOSE

  A sources group where PostScript programs of generally useful
  graphic images and PostScript-related utilities can be posted.

VOTING PERIOD

   FROM  00:01 GMT, Saturday, January 9th, 1993.
     TO  23:59 GMT, Saturday, February 6th, 1993.

HOW TO VOTE

   To vote on comp.sources.postscript, send your vote to:

      tjc50@juts.ccc.amdahl.com

   In the body or subject header (preferably the subject header),
   include one of the following:

      I vote YES on creation of comp.sources.postscript as proposed.
      I vote NO  on creation of comp.sources.postscript as proposed.

RATIONALE

  Use of graphics is very popular in document-making, and a

RESULTS OF DISCUSSION

  The RFD for this group was originated by Jonathan Monsarrat
  (jgm@cs.brown.edu) and was posted to news.announce.newgroups
  on December 1, 1992.

  Discussion in news.groups and comp.lang.postscript has been
  positive. The charter has been changed to reflect the consensus
  that source not written in PostScript may be included if it is
  strongly connected with PostScript (see below).

CONTENT

  Source code written in the PostScript language would be appropriate.
  Fonts and programs in other languages that involve PostScript
  directly and heavily would be appropriate also.

  Clip Art:   Hand-made PostScript programs, converted binaries,
              or the machine generated output from a drawing tools,
              representing a graphical image meant to be included in
              documents. (Other art would usually be fine.)

  Utilities:  Hand-made PostScript programs either demonstrating or

VOTING RULES
 
  One vote per person.  If you vote more than once, the votes will
  be counted as a single vote.  If the votes are in conflict, all
  votes will be discarded. If you wish to change your vote, please
  send a message to me with a subject line of either of the following:
 
   Vote Change: I vote YES on creation of comp.sources.postscript as proposed.
   Vote Change: I vote NO  on creation of comp.sources.postscript as proposed.

  Votes posted to any newsgroup will NOT be counted.

  According to the Usenet rules, in order for the new group to be
  created, at least 2/3 of the votes must be "YES", and there must
  be at least 100 more "YES" votes than "NO" votes.

AMBIGUOUS VOTE RESOLUTION

  Ambiguous votes -- those whose subject lines or message body do
  not make clear the voter's intent -- will, where possible, be
  returned to their senders for clarification.  Ambiguous votes 
  which cannot be returned to their senders or for which no
  clarification is provided will be identified in vote mass
  acknowledgements and in the final vote tally.

This is the 3rd and final Call For Votes regarding the establishment
of a newsgroup to deal with graphic source written in the PostScript
language.

This announcement is cross-posted to newsgroups whose readers may have
interest in voting on the new group.

At the end of this posting is a mass acknowledgement of the votes
received so far, as of Thursday, January 28 at 19:00 PST.  If your
internet address is listed below, your vote has already been counted;
please do not vote a second time.


CALL FOR VOTES
--------------

NEWSGROUP

  comp.sources.postscript          (moderated)

PURPOSE

  A sources group where PostScript programs of generally useful
  graphic images and PostScript-related utilities can be posted.

VOTING PERIOD

   FROM  00:01 GMT, Saturday, January 9th, 1993.
     TO  23:59 GMT, Saturday, February 6th, 1993.

HOW TO VOTE

   To vote on comp.sources.postscript, send your vote to:

      tjc50@juts.ccc.amdahl.com

   In the body or subject header (preferably the subject header),
   include one of the following:

      I vote YES on creation of comp.sources.postscript as proposed.
      I vote NO  on creation of comp.sources.postscript as proposed.

RATIONALE

  Use of graphics is very popular in document-making, and a
  great deal of effort is spent in creating PostScript graphics.
  There is no general forum to share or request these graphics.

  A share space is also needed for utilities and example code
  for PostScript programmers. Comp.lang.postscript is a discussion
  newsgroup, and people rightly refrain from posting source code
  there because it would increase the non-discussion aspects of the group
  to the point that many PostScript non-programmers would not read it.

RESULTS OF DISCUSSION

  The RFD for this group was originated by Jonathan Monsarrat
  (jgm@cs.brown.edu) and was posted to news.announce.newgroups
  on December 1, 1992.

  Discussion in news.groups and comp.lang.postscript has been
  positive. The charter has been changed to reflect the consensus
  that source not written in PostScript may be included if it is
  strongly connected with PostScript (see below).

CONTENT

  Source code written in the PostScript language would be appropriate.
  Fonts and programs in other languages that involve PostScript
  directly and heavily would be appropriate also.

  Clip Art:   Hand-made PostScript programs, converted binaries,
              or the machine generated output from a drawing tools,
              representing a graphical image meant to be included in
              documents. (Other art would usually be fine.)

  Utilities:  Hand-made PostScript programs either demonstrating or
              facilitating use of the PostScript graphics language.
              This would include PostScript generating programs and
              other tools not written in PostScript.

  Examples:   "How-to" examples would be encouraged.

  Fonts:      Fonts that can be used with the PostScript language.

  The focus will be on generally useful programs or art. Specific
  information, such as a new weathermap in PostScript posted daily, is
  more like a binary than a source, and would not be appropriate.

  Text documents formatted in PostScript would not be appropriate.

  EPS conversion, DSC conformance, and commented code would be
  facilitated and encouraged, but not required.

NAME

  "comp.sources.postscript"    follows other comp.sources.* groups.

MODERATED

  Comp.sources.postscript will be moderated to limit noise,
  and to increase the ease of archiving and retrieving source code.
  Comp.sources.* groups are usually moderated.

MODERATOR

  Jonathan Monsarrat (jgm@cs.brown.edu) is an experienced PostScript
  programmer. He maintains the comp.lang.postscript FAQ.
  He is currently the only volunteer.

VOTING RULES
 
  One vote per person.  If you vote more than once, the votes will
  be counted as a single vote.  If the votes are in conflict, all
  votes will be discarded. If you wish to change your vote, please
  send a message to me with a subject line of either of the following:
 
   Vote Change: I vote YES on creation of comp.sources.postscript as proposed.
   Vote Change: I vote NO  on creation of comp.sources.postscript as proposed.

  Votes posted to any newsgroup will NOT be counted.

  According to the Usenet rules, in order for the new group to be
  created, at least 2/3 of the votes must be "YES", and there must
  be at least 100 more "YES" votes than "NO" votes.

AMBIGUOUS VOTE RESOLUTION

  Ambiguous votes -- those whose subject lines or message body do
  not make clear the voter's intent -- will, where possible, be
  returned to their senders for clarification.  Ambiguous votes 
  which cannot be returned to their senders or for which no
  clarification is provided will be identified in vote mass
  acknowledgements and in the final vote tally.

AMBIGUOUS VOTES NOT RESOLVED (these votes were ambiguous, and the voters
did  not respond to emails to clarify their votes).

 Orion@cup.portal.com 
    (Voted YES, but with a request that the group be unmoderated).
 lhf@visgraf.impa.br (Luiz Henrique de Figueiredo)
    (Sent message consisting of a single word, 'YES', without
     identifying whether the message was with regard to the 
     newsgroup vote).

Here is a recap of the comp.sources.postscript charter:

NEWSGROUP

  comp.sources.postscript          (moderated)

PURPOSE

  A sources group where PostScript programs of generally useful
  graphic images and PostScript-related utilities can be posted.

RATIONALE

  Use of graphics is very popular in document-making, and a
  great deal of effort is spent in creating PostScript graphics.
  There is no general forum to share or request these graphics.

  A share space is also needed for utilities and example code
  for PostScript programmers. Comp.lang.postscript is a discussion
  newsgroup, and people rightly refrain from posting source code
  there because it would increase the non-discussion aspects of the group
  to the point that many PostScript non-programmers would not read it.

RESULTS OF DISCUSSION

  The RFD for this group was originated by Jonathan Monsarrat
  (jgm@cs.brown.edu) and was posted to news.announce.newgroups
  on December 1, 1992.

  Discussion in news.groups and comp.lang.postscript has been
  positive. The charter has been changed to reflect the consensus
  that source not written in PostScript may be included if it is
  strongly connected with PostScript (see below).

CONTENT

  Source code written in the PostScript language would be appropriate.
  Fonts and programs in other languages that involve PostScript
  directly and heavily would be appropriate also.

  Clip Art:   Hand-made PostScript programs, converted binaries,
              or the machine generated output from a drawing tools,
              representing a graphical image meant to be included in
              documents. (Other art would usually be fine.)

  Utilities:  Hand-made PostScript programs either demonstrating or
              facilitating use of the PostScript graphics language.
              This would include PostScript generating programs and
              other tools not written in PostScript.

  Examples:   "How-to" examples would be encouraged.

  Fonts:      Fonts that can be used with the PostScript language.

  The focus will be on generally useful programs or art. Specific
  information, such as a new weathermap in PostScript posted daily, is
  more like a binary than a source, and would not be appropriate.

  Text documents formatted in PostScript would not be appropriate.

  EPS conversion, DSC conformance, and commented code would be
  facilitated and encouraged, but not required.

NAME

  "comp.sources.postscript"    follows other comp.sources.* groups.

MODERATED

  Comp.sources.postscript will be moderated to limit noise,
  and to increase the ease of archiving and retrieving source code.
  Comp.sources.* groups are usually moderated.

MODERATOR

  Jonathan Monsarrat (jgm@cs.brown.edu) is an experienced PostScript
  programmer. He maintains the comp.lang.postscript FAQ.
  He is currently the only volunteer.
