This is the official CFD (Call for Discussion) of the creation of a new
hierarchy and subgroups within that hierarchy, to better distribute and
broaden the topics now covered in the newsgroup comp.os.msdos.pcgeos.

PROPOSED HIERARCHY: comp.os.geos.*

PROPOSED GROUPS:

comp.os.geos {or comp.os.geos.misc}             Unmoderated
comp.os.geos.bugs                               Unmoderated
comp.os.geos.announce                           Moderated(?)
comp.os.geos.binaries {or comp.binaries.geos}   Unmoderated
comp.os.geos.programmer                         Unmoderated

BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE:

For some time, the group comp.os.msdos.pcgeos has been in use.  This name
is a bit misleading in my opinion, since it portrays GEOS as merely an
application set which runs under MSDOS, rather than an entire operating
environment/system.

In the past, I have discussed the idea of getting a full hierarchy for the
GEOS operating system with a representative of GeoWorks, and at that point
in time, he suggested waiting until v2.0 of the software shipped.  2.0 has
now been released as an upgrade for current users, and the bandwidth and
topic spread of comp.os.msdos.pcgeos have been increasing quite a bit.
Therefore, I feel the time has come to propose the hierarchy.

CHARTERS:

comp.os.geos {or comp.os.geos.misc} (unmoderated) will be a newsgrop for
general discussion of GEOS-based products from GeoWorks (Berkeley, CA) and
their associated third-party vendors.  Discussion topics would thus include
GeoWorks Ensemble (1.0, 1.2, 2.0), GeoWorks Pro, the GeoWorks Personal Office
Series, GeoWorks Escape, Certified Software's applications, America Online,
Palm and Intuit's applications for the forthcoming Zoomer platform, and any
other GEOS-related topics.  I personally expect that "tweaks" will be a
popular topic, as the current group includes a lot of discussion of ways to
make GEOS act the way you want it to.  More specific groups would exist
under the hierarchy, as follows:

comp.os.geos.bugs (unmoderated) will be a newsgroup for the discussion of
"undocumented features" found in GEOS-based products.  This would include
postings along the lines of "if you do this, you get that error," of
course, and also less crucial ones such as "this worked differently
<better> in the last release, what happened?"

comp.os.geos.announce (moderated?) will be a newsgroup for the announcement
of GEOS-based products and related products.  This would include any new
releases by GeoWorks, any new releases by third-party vendors for the GEOS
operating system, and any announcements relating to the Casio/Tandy Zoomer
PDA.  I believe this group will become very useful in the next few months,
as the public release of 2.0, the introduction of the Zoomer, and the first
big wave of third-party support should all hit early this fall.  I'm not
sure whether this group would best be moderated by a representative of
GeoWorks or an independent user of the system, and a representative of
GeoWorks told me he doesn't think the traffic will be high enough initially
to warrant a moderator, thus the question-mark.

comp.os.geos.binaries {or comp.binaries.geos} (unmoderated) will be a
newsgroup for the posting of UUencoded binaries for use with the GEOS
operating system.  This would include any free or shareware applications,
document templates, screen backgrounds, clip-art,  non-ASCII informational
files, et cetera.  As some people have already begun posting binaries to
the existing group (much to the chagrin of our resident GeoWorker), I
suspect this would be a good group to get started pronto.

comp.os.geos.programmer (unmoderated) will be a newsgroup for discussion of
matters pertaining to writing software for the GEOS operating system.  As
the GEOS Software Development Kit and Device Driver Development Kit are yet
in beta testing, this group would be somewhat quiet, at first.  However,
the SDK _documentation_ is available, and those of us who have it (myself
included) would probably appreciate having the space to discuss it, and
others could read and learn along with us.

SUMMARY:

In summary, a new hierarchy with subgroups would better serve the GEOS
community, both now, as topics and bandwidth have just begun to increase,
and in the future, as the increase accelerates.  Renaming the hierarchy
would also clarify GEOS's position as an operating environment/system.

CFV:

Calls for votes will begin in about a month (late July of 1993).  I expect
that there will be one initial call for votes, for the comp.os.geos group
(thus creating the hierarchy) and then, if the first CFV passes, a set of
individual CFV's for the subgroups in late August.  This allows enough
time to get the hierarchy  configured before the anticipated explosive
growth in late September or early October.

DISCUSSION:

Discussion of the proposed groups should be held on news.groups. Note that
the Followup-To: line of this article will direct any followups to
news.groups automatically.

Feel free to re-post this article to other newsgroups whose readers might
find it of interest, as long as the Followup-To: line remains directed to
news.groups.

CHARTER

Comp.OS.GEOS is an unmoderated forum for general discussion of the
GEOS operating system and related products from GeoWorks (Berkeley,
CA), their associated third-party development partners, and
independent software vendors.

GEOS is a pre-emptive multitasking, multithreading, object-oriented
graphical operating system which runs on PC-compatibles.

All topics related to GEOS are welcome on Comp.OS.GEOS.  These
include - but are not by any means limited to - GeoWorks Ensemble
1.0, 1.2, and 2.0, GeoWorks Pro, the GeoWorks Personal Office
Series, GeoWorks Escape, Certified Software's utilities and games,
America Online, the forthcoming Tandy/Casio Zoomer palmtop and the
applications being developed for it by Palm, Intuit, and others,
configuration and performance-tuning of GEOS systems, bugs and
"undocumented features," announcement and discussion of new
hardware and software products, and matters pertaining to
developing software for GEOS.

STANDARD VOTING INFO

You should send MAIL (posts to a group are invalid) to
      [email protected]
(just replying by MAIL to this message should work).  Your mail
message should contain one and only one of the following statements:

      I vote YES on comp.os.geos
or
      I vote NO on comp.os.geos

You may add a comment, but anything other than a definite statement involving
the group name and "yes", "no", "for", or "against" on a single line may be
rejected by the automatic vote counting program. Please don't include a copy
of this whole message; I already have one, and it confuses the vote counting
program (since it includes both YES and NO votes on the group). If you later
change your mind you may also send in an "abstain" vote in the same manner,
using "abstain" in place of "yes" or "no". Additional CFVs will include mass
acks.  

Standard Guidelines for voting apply - one vote per person (not per
account).  100 more YES votes than NO votes and 2/3 of all votes being
YES are the requirements for group creation.

Valid votes from the following people have been received as of midnight UTC,
23 August 1993:
