Request For Discussion

   This is the formal Request For Discussion for the creation of four
   newsgroups, the renaming of one newsgroup, and the removal of one
   newsgroup.  Please do not vote now.  As soon at this RFD is posted,
   I will post an RFD pointer to:
      comp.os.os2.apps
      comp.os.os2.programmer.misc
      comp.os.os2.networking
      comp.os.os2.ver1x

Summary of proposals (all unmoderated):

   a)  Create comp.os.os2.games
   b)  Create comp.os.os2.programmer.tools
   c)  Create comp.os.os2.programmer.oop
   d)  Create comp.os.os2.networking.tcp-ip
   e)  Rename comp.os.os2.networking to comp.os.os2.networking.misc
   f)  Remove comp.os.os2.ver1x

Background:

   The popularity of 32-bit OS/2 2.1 is growing, thanks to a combination
   of lower hardware prices, low-cost availability of OS/2 2.1, and an
   attractive feature set of OS/2 2.1.  One of the great strengths of OS/2
   2.1 is to run DOS and Windows programs, such as games.

   Games are among the most picky programs to configure, many requiring
   DOS users to have different CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files to play.
   OS/2 2.1 makes it easier because it allows many DOS games to run without
   having to reboot the computer.  Under OS/2 2.1, each DOS or Windows game
   (or non- game program, for that matter) can have its very own environment,
   such as its own AUTOEXEC.BAT file, its own CONFIG.SYS lines, memory setup,
   and so forth.  OS/2 2.1 also makes an excellent platform for its own games
   as well.  With features such as multi- threading and multi-media, there
   are freeware, shareware, and commercial OS/2 games that are already here
   or are being developed.  But OS/2 is not just for playing around.

   There is a slew of OS/2 2.1 programming tools -- each having advantages
   and disadvantages over another.  Since OS/2 2.1 can be likened to a bridge
   between UNIX, OS/2 1.3, DOS, and Windows, there have been many OS/2 2.1
   compilers and assemblers ported or derived from these platforms (e.g.
   emx/gcc, gcc/2, Borland C++/2, et.al).  There are also visual programming
   tools such as VisPro/Rexx and VX-Rexx that offer the programmer more
   choice in development environments.

   Programmers can write programs that interface with OS/2 2.1's object-
   oriented subsystem called System Object Model (SOM).  SOM is a language-
   independent specification for object-oriented programming.  Programmers
   can enhance system-provided objects by overriding the desired methods, for
   instance, or change the behaviour of the Workplace Shell (WPS) -- OS/2
   2.1's object- oriented shell based on SOM -- such as changing the
   behaviour of a "folder" (an object) by modifying a method or two without
   having to rewrite a "folder" from scratch.  IBM is working on enhancing
   SOM's object-oriented specification by means of Distributed SOM (DSOM)
   to allow such actions across a network, OpenDoc, and Taligent Frameworks
   as part of IBM's cross-platform strategy with its future Workplace OS and
   Pink operating systems.

   OS/2 can be connected to other platforms, or to other OS/2 machines,
   through networking.  TCP/IP is a popular networking package for OS/2
   machines.  This will be more so since a free TCP/IP package is being
   worked on right now.

   OS/2 1.3 has long been popular in networking environments, although there
   is less need for regular people to run OS/2 1.3 due to the popularity of
   OS/2 2.1 (lower hardware prices, low-cost availability, and attractive
   feature set).

Proposed charters or reasons:

   a)  Create comp.os.os2.games
       Charter:  Unmoderated discussion of OS/2-specific games (e.g.
                 pricing, availability, features, reviews, previews, surveys,
                 etc.), and discussion of running DOS and Windows games under
                 OS/2 (e.g. compatibility, settings, etc.).

                 Note that discussion of DOS and Windows games not related
                 to OS/2 belongs in the proper games newsgroup.

   b)  Create comp.os.os2.programmer.tools
       Charter:  Unmoderated discussion of programming tools (compilers,
                 interpreters, assemblers) that generates or executes OS/2
                 code, and discussion of running DOS and Windows programming
                 tools under OS/2.

                 Note that discussion of DOS and Windows programming tools
                 not related to OS/2 (e.g. how much does `<xyz> for DOS'
                 cost) belongs in the proper programming newsgroup.

   c)  Create comp.os.os2.programmer.oop
       Charter:  Unmoderated discussion of programming for OS/2's object-
                 oriented subsystem, including SOM, DSOM, OpenDoc, and
                 Taligent Frameworks.

                 Note that discussion of object-oriented languages (e.g.
                 C++, Smalltalk) belongs in the proper language newsgroup.

   d)  Create comp.os.os2.networking.tcp-ip
       Charter:  Unmoderated discussion of TCP/IP (e.g. hardware, drivers,
                 setup, problems, bugs, etc.) under all versions of OS/2.

   e)  Rename comp.os.os2.networking to comp.os.os2.networking.misc
       Reason:   The standard practice of Usenet is usually to rename a
                 split newsgroup as .misc.
       Charter:  comp.os.os2.networking.misc will continue to be the
                 newsgroup to discuss miscellaneous OS/2-related networking
                 issues in an unmoderated setting.

   f)  Remove comp.os.os2.ver1x
       Reason:   OS/2 1.3 is now used mostly by companies (such as in
                 networking environments or ATMs) managed by long-time
                 experts rather than by regular people (i.e. Usenet
                 readers).

Schedule:

   These proposals have been informally discussed in several comp.os.os2.*
   newsgroups throughout January.  Some other proposals that were discussed
   informally did not make it in this RFD, but may be included in a future
   RFD.  Minor changes were made to the names of some of these proposals
   to match existing newsgroup names (i.e. comp.os.os2.programmer.oop rather
   than *.oo -- cf. comp.sys.mac.oop; comp.os.os2.networking.tcp-ip rather
   than *.tcpip -- cf. comp.protocols.tcp-ip).

   The posting of this RFD begins the formal discussion period, and will
   last for 21 days.  Discussion is to take place in news.groups.  Please
   do not vote now.

   If there are no unresolvable objections, a formal Call For Votes (CFV)
   will be posted when the formal discussion period is over.

HOW TO VOTE
 
You should send MAIL (posts to a group are invalid) to
      [email protected]
(just replying by MAIL to this message should work, if you're not reading this
as part of a mailing list).  I will send mail acknowledgements for votes that
I receive.  If you receive a correct ack, your vote has been received.  If you
do not receive an ack after several days, you need to vote again. It is your
responsibility to see that your vote is recorded correctly.  
 
USE THE FORM AS IT IS.  Otherwise your vote may be rejected.  Do not delete
anything between the "-=-=-=-=-" lines - and most certainly do not monkey with
the group names. Please delete everything but the ballot itself, though; I
don't need another copy of the full CFV. You may _NOT_ do a combined vote -
i.e., "I vote for all of them" or "I vote against all of them." 
 
For each group, simply add your vote between the brackets on the same line. 
Recognized votes are Yes and No.  Capitalization is not important. If you
don't want to vote on a particular group, just leave the space blank.  Don't
worry about spacing of the columns or any quote characters ">" that your reply
inserts.  
 
Anything else may be rejected by the automatic vote counting program. ABSTAINs
do not affect the vote outcome.  You may change your vote later by voting
again.  The votetaker will respond to received ballots with mail acks. 
Addresses and votes of all voters will be published in the vote results.  If
you wish to remove your vote and all indication that you have voted from the
final list, send a vote with CANCEL in each voting position.  
 
Standard Guidelines for voting apply.  Only one vote per person, and only one
vote per account, will be counted.  For each proposal to pass, 100 more YES
votes than NO votes and twice as many YES votes as NO votes must be received.
 
Simple instructions: Delete everything above the top "-=-=-=-" line, delete
everything below the bottom "-=-=-=-" line.  Give your real name on the line
that asks for it.  For each group, place a YES or NO in the brackets next to
it to vote for or against it. 

[[ news.announce.newgroups moderator's note:  IMPORTANT!  A vote of "YES" for
comp.os.os2.ver1x means you agree it should be deleted; one of "NO" means it
should be retained.  This is exactly opposite the meanings of YES/NO votes
for the other groups in the proposal. -- tale ]]

   or are being developed.  But OS/2 is not just for playing around.

   There is a slew of OS/2 2.1 programming tools -- each having advantages
   and disadvantages over another.  Since OS/2 2.1 can be likened to a bridge
   between UNIX, OS/2 1.3, DOS, and Windows, there have been many OS/2 2.1
   compilers and assemblers ported or derived from these platforms (e.g.
   emx/gcc, gcc/2, Borland C++/2, et.al).  There are also visual programming
   tools such as VisPro/Rexx and VX-Rexx that offer the programmer more
   choice in development environments.

   Programmers can write programs that interface with OS/2 2.1's object-
   oriented subsystem called System Object Model (SOM).  SOM is a language-
   independent specification for object-oriented programming.  Programmers
   can enhance system-provided objects by overriding the desired methods, for
   instance, or change the behaviour of the Workplace Shell (WPS) -- OS/2
   2.1's object-oriented shell based on SOM -- such as changing the
   behaviour of a "folder" (an object) by modifying a method or two without
   having to rewrite a "folder" from scratch.  IBM is working on enhancing
   SOM's object-oriented specification by means of Distributed SOM (DSOM)
   to allow such actions across a network, OpenDoc, and Taligent Frameworks
   as part of IBM's cross-platform strategy with its future Workplace OS and
   Pink operating systems.

   OS/2 can be connected to other platforms, or to other OS/2 machines,
   through networking.  TCP/IP is a popular networking package for OS/2
   machines.  This will be more so since a free TCP/IP package is being
   worked on right now.

   OS/2 1.3 has long been popular in networking environments, although there
   is less need for regular people to run OS/2 1.3 due to the popularity of
   OS/2 2.1 (lower hardware prices, low-cost availability, and attractive
   feature set).

NOTE...

Due to a clerical error, my account on this machine was deleted on 1 March.
Some ballots in the ongoing vote have been lost, as the files in my account
were restored from a backup taken the evening of 28 February. It was restored
the afternoon of 1 March.

If you have not received an acknowledgement for your vote, or if your
acknowledgement was sent between noon US Central Time (1800 GMT) on 28
February and 2 PM US Central Time (2000 GMT) on 1 March, and you have not
received another acknowledgement from me since then, you need to vote again,
as your vote has been lost. If your acknowledgement was sent outside that
time, you should be OK. If you're not sure, please feel free to vote again;
duplicate votes will be weeded out during the counting process. 

This note was posted to the same groups as the original Call for Votes; it is
being repeated here to ensure that interested people see it.

HOW TO VOTE
 
You should send MAIL (posts to a group are invalid) to
      [email protected]
(just replying by MAIL to this message should work, if you're not reading this
as part of a mailing list).  I will send mail acknowledgements for votes that
I receive.  If you receive a correct ack, your vote has been received.  If you
do not receive an ack after several days, you need to vote again. It is your
responsibility to see that your vote is recorded correctly.  
 
USE THE FORM AS IT IS.  Otherwise your vote may be rejected.  Do not delete
anything between the "-=-=-=-=-" lines - and most certainly do not monkey with
the group names. Please delete everything but the ballot itself, though; I
don't need another copy of the full CFV. You may _NOT_ do a combined vote -
i.e., "I vote for all of them" or "I vote against all of them." 
 
For each group, simply add your vote between the brackets on the same line. 
Recognized votes are Yes and No.  Capitalization is not important. If you
don't want to vote on a particular group, just leave the space blank.  Don't
worry about spacing of the columns or any quote characters ">" that your reply
inserts.  
 
Anything else may be rejected by the automatic vote counting program. ABSTAINs
do not affect the vote outcome.  You may change your vote later by voting
again.  The votetaker will respond to received ballots with mail acks. 
Addresses and votes of all voters will be published in the vote results.  If
you wish to remove your vote and all indication that you have voted from the
final list, send a vote with CANCEL in each voting position.  
 
Standard Guidelines for voting apply.  Only one vote per person, and only one
vote per account, will be counted.  For each proposal to pass, 100 more YES
votes than NO votes and twice as many YES votes as NO votes must be received.
 
Simple instructions: Delete everything above the top "-=-=-=-" line, delete
everything below the bottom "-=-=-=-" line.  Give your real name on the line
that asks for it.  For each group, place a YES or NO in the brackets next to
it to vote for or against it. 

[[ news.announce.newgroups moderator's note:  IMPORTANT!  A vote of "YES" for
comp.os.os2.ver1x means you agree it should be deleted; one of "NO" means it
should be retained.  This is exactly opposite the meanings of YES/NO votes
for the other groups in the proposal. -- tale ]]

CHARTERS

   a)  Create comp.os.os2.games
       Charter:  Unmoderated discussion of OS/2-specific games (e.g.
                 pricing, availability, features, reviews, previews, surveys,
                 etc.), and discussion of running DOS and Windows games under
                 OS/2 (e.g. compatibility, settings, etc.).

                 Note that discussion of DOS and Windows games not related
                 to OS/2 belongs in the proper games newsgroup.

   b)  Create comp.os.os2.programmer.tools
       Charter:  Unmoderated discussion of programming tools (compilers,
                 interpreters, assemblers) that generates or executes OS/2
                 code, and discussion of running DOS and Windows programming
                 tools under OS/2.

                 Note that discussion of DOS and Windows programming tools
                 not related to OS/2 (e.g. how much does `<xyz> for DOS'
                 cost) belongs in the proper programming newsgroup.

   c)  Create comp.os.os2.programmer.oop
       Charter:  Unmoderated discussion of programming for OS/2's object-
                 oriented subsystem, including SOM, DSOM, OpenDoc, and
                 Taligent Frameworks.

                 Note that discussion of object-oriented languages (e.g.
                 C++, Smalltalk) belongs in the proper language newsgroup.

   d)  Create comp.os.os2.networking.tcp-ip
       Charter:  Unmoderated discussion of TCP/IP (e.g. hardware, drivers,
                 setup, problems, bugs, etc.) under all versions of OS/2.

   e)  Rename comp.os.os2.networking to comp.os.os2.networking.misc
       Reason:   The standard practice of Usenet is usually to rename a
                 split newsgroup as .misc.
       Charter:  comp.os.os2.networking.misc will continue to be the
                 newsgroup to discuss miscellaneous OS/2-related networking
                 issues in an unmoderated setting.

   f)  Remove comp.os.os2.ver1x
       Reason:   OS/2 1.3 is now used mostly by companies (such as in
                 networking environments or ATMs) managed by long-time
                 experts rather than by regular people (i.e. Usenet
                 readers).

RATIONALE

   The popularity of 32-bit OS/2 2.1 is growing, thanks to a combination
   of lower hardware prices, low-cost availability of OS/2 2.1, and an
   attractive feature set of OS/2 2.1.  One of the great strengths of OS/2
   2.1 is to run DOS and Windows programs, such as games.

   Games are among the most picky programs to configure, many requiring
   DOS users to have different CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files to play.
   OS/2 2.1 makes it easier because it allows many DOS games to run without
   having to reboot the computer.  Under OS/2 2.1, each DOS or Windows game
   (or non- game program, for that matter) can have its very own environment,
   such as its own AUTOEXEC.BAT file, its own CONFIG.SYS lines, memory setup,
   and so forth.  OS/2 2.1 also makes an excellent platform for its own games
   as well.  With features such as multi- threading and multi-media, there
   are freeware, shareware, and commercial OS/2 games that are already here
   or are being developed.  But OS/2 is not just for playing around.

   There is a slew of OS/2 2.1 programming tools -- each having advantages
   and disadvantages over another.  Since OS/2 2.1 can be likened to a bridge
   between UNIX, OS/2 1.3, DOS, and Windows, there have been many OS/2 2.1
   compilers and assemblers ported or derived from these platforms (e.g.
   emx/gcc, gcc/2, Borland C++/2, et.al).  There are also visual programming
   tools such as VisPro/Rexx and VX-Rexx that offer the programmer more
   choice in development environments.

   Programmers can write programs that interface with OS/2 2.1's object-
   oriented subsystem called System Object Model (SOM).  SOM is a language-
   independent specification for object-oriented programming.  Programmers
   can enhance system-provided objects by overriding the desired methods, for
   instance, or change the behaviour of the Workplace Shell (WPS) -- OS/2
   2.1's object-oriented shell based on SOM -- such as changing the
   behaviour of a "folder" (an object) by modifying a method or two without
   having to rewrite a "folder" from scratch.  IBM is working on enhancing
   SOM's object-oriented specification by means of Distributed SOM (DSOM)
   to allow such actions across a network, OpenDoc, and Taligent Frameworks
   as part of IBM's cross-platform strategy with its future Workplace OS and
   Pink operating systems.

   OS/2 can be connected to other platforms, or to other OS/2 machines,
   through networking.  TCP/IP is a popular networking package for OS/2
   machines.  This will be more so since a free TCP/IP package is being
   worked on right now.

   OS/2 1.3 has long been popular in networking environments, although there
   is less need for regular people to run OS/2 1.3 due to the popularity of
   OS/2 2.1 (lower hardware prices, low-cost availability, and attractive
