                  REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION

         Group Name:  comp.org.uniforum
             Status:  unmoderated
       Distribution:  world-wide
            Summary:  Newsgroup for announcements by and discussion
                      about UniForum Association
        Proposed by:  George Bosworth ([email protected])
                      UniForum member # 5069

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) on the subject of
creating an unmoderated Usenet newsgroup comp.org.uniforum.

BACKGROUND

UniForum, The International Association of Open Systems Professionals,
is a large Unix-related professional association located in Santa
Clara, CA.  UniForum has over 39,000 paid and trial members, holds
an annual UniForum trade show, publishes a bimonthly UniNews and a
monthly UniForum Monthly, and publishes an annual Open Systems Product
Directory, which in '94 had over 1,600 pages.  UniForum has 13
affiliate SIGs in U.S. cities, and affiliate relation with Unix or
Open Systems organizations in 19 countries. 

CHARTER

The proposed unmoderated newsgroup comp.org.uniforum will be used for
announcements by UniForum staff, questions and answers about UniForum
affairs of any kind, and discussion of UniForum-related events and
matters.  In operation, comp.org.uniforum will be similar to other
comp.org.* newsgroups, such as comp.org.ieee, comp.org.sug, and
comp.org.usenix.

Some sites carry a bogus newsgroup by the name of comp.org.uniforum
already.  The official creation of comp.org.uniforum according to
agreed Usenet procedures will facilitate access to UniForum
information around the world.

This is NOT a call for votes. Barring a need for a second RFD, the
Call For Votes (CFV) will be posted approximately 21 to 30 days from
now. I intend to ask an independent third party to run the vote.

This RFD has been posted to news.announce.newgroups, news.groups,
comp.org.ieee, comp.org.sug, comp.org.usenix, and comp.unix.misc. Post
any discussion about this RFD to news.groups.

This RFD has been posted in accordance with the 'Requirements for
Group Creation' in 'Guidelines for Usenet Group Creation.' Its format
is based on those of several earlier RFDs.

                  REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION

         Group Name:  comp.org.uniforum
             Status:  unmoderated
       Distribution:  world-wide
            Summary:  Newsgroup for announcements by and discussion
                      about UniForum Association
        Proposed by:  George Bosworth ([email protected])
                      UniForum member # 5069

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) on the subject of
creating an unmoderated Usenet newsgroup comp.org.uniforum.

BACKGROUND

UniForum, The International Association of Open Systems Professionals,
is a large Unix-related professional association located in Santa
Clara, CA.  UniForum has over 39,000 paid and trial members, holds
an annual UniForum trade show, publishes a bimonthly UniNews and a
monthly UniForum Monthly, and publishes an annual Open Systems Product
Directory, which in '94 had over 1,600 pages.  UniForum has 13
affiliate SIGs in U.S. cities, and affiliate relation with Unix or
Open Systems organizations in 19 countries.

CHARTER

The proposed unmoderated newsgroup comp.org.uniforum will be used for
announcements by UniForum staff, questions and answers about UniForum
affairs of any kind, and discussion of UniForum-related events and
matters.  In operation, comp.org.uniforum will be similar to other
comp.org.* newsgroups, such as comp.org.ieee, comp.org.sug, and
comp.org.usenix.

Some sites carry a bogus newsgroup by the name of comp.org.uniforum
already.  The official creation of comp.org.uniforum according to
agreed Usenet procedures will facilitate access to UniForum
information around the world.

This is NOT a call for votes. Barring a need for a second RFD, the
Call For Votes (CFV) will be posted approximately 21 to 30 days from
now. I intend to ask an independent third party to run the vote.

This RFD has been posted to news.announce.newgroups, news.groups,
comp.org.ieee, comp.org.sug, and comp.org.usenix. Post any discussion
about this RFD to news.groups.

This RFD has been posted in accordance with the 'Requirements for
Group Creation' in 'Guidelines for Usenet Group Creation.' Its format
is based on those of several earlier RFDs.

		     FIRST CALL FOR VOTES (of 2)

Newsgroups line:

Votes must be received by 23:59:59 UTC, 20 June 1995.

This vote is being conducted by a neutral third party.  For voting
questions only contact Jonathan Kamens <[email protected]> (the
votetaker).  For questions about the proposed group contact George
H. Bosworth <[email protected]> (the proponent).

RATIONALE/ADDITIONAL NOTES

Some sites carry a bogus newsgroup by the name comp.org.uniforum
already. The official creation of comp.org.uniforum according to
agreed Usenet procedures will faciliate access to UniForum information
around the world.  This CFV will be posted separately to
comp.org.uniforum so that readers of the bogus newsgroup are made
aware that it is bogus and that a vote is being conducted to make it
legitimate.

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 of the following statements:
	vote comp.org.uniforum YES
	vote comp.org.uniforum NO


IMPORTANT VOTING PROCEDURE NOTES

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.  You should receive an automatic acknowledgement of your vote
within three days.  If you do not, contact the votetaker about the
problem.  It's your responsibility to make sure your vote is
registered correctly.

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

Duplicate votes will be resolved in favor of the most recent valid
vote.

Anonymous votes will not be accepted.  Votes mailed by WWW/HTML/CGI
forms are considered anonymous votes.  (The vote must be mailed
directly from the voter to the votetaker.)

In cases where voting fraud is determined to have occurred, it is
standard operating procedure to delete ALL votes submitted by the
violator.

If you give anyone a copy of the CFV, it must be whole and unmodified.

When in doubt, ask the votetaker.


OFFICIAL SOURCES OF THE CFV

The only official sources for copies of this CFV are the UseNet
newsgroups to which it is posted by the votetaker, including
news.announce.newgroups, and the votetaker.

RATIONALE/ADDITIONAL NOTES

Some sites carry a bogus newsgroup by the name comp.org.uniforum
already. The official creation of comp.org.uniforum according to
agreed Usenet procedures will faciliate access to UniForum information
around the world.

The first CFV for this group said that it would be posted separately
to comp.org.uniforum so that readers of the bogus newsgroup are made
aware that it is bogus and that a vote is being conducted to make it
legitimate.  However, I (i.e., the votetaker) did not do that
reposting because I discovered that I would have had to repost the CFV
to some other widely circulated group for it to propagate to sites
that carry comp.org.uniforum, and because further research indicated
that the number of sites carrying comp.org.uniforum is apparently very
low.
