Introduction:

	This is a Request For Discussion (RFD) for the creation of three OS/2
	newsgroups:
	(1)  comp.os.os2.ver1x      (unmoderated)
	(2)  comp.os.os2.beta       (unmoderated)
	(3)  comp.os.os2.announce   (moderated)


Background:

	OS/2 1.x (that is, versions of OS/2 up to 1.3) is a 16-bit operating
	system designed for the Intel 286 processor.  It supports running
	one DOS application, and multiple OS/2 1.x applications simultaneously
	(IBM is still supporting OS/2 1.x).

	OS/2 2.x (that is, versions of OS/2 since 2.0) is a 32-bit operating
	system designed for the Intel 386SX and higher processors.  It
	supports running multiple DOS, Windows, OS/2 1.x, and OS/2 2.x
	applications simultaneously.

	IBM has allowed testers of various OS/2 2.x betas to discuss their
	opinions and feature requests for the betas in public, with no "non-
	disclosure agreements."  In addition, IBM has and is giving out betas
	of OS/2 2.1 for free (either on CD-ROM for a US$15 shipping fee, or
	from ftp sites such as ftp-os2.nmsu.edu and software.watson.ibm.com
	with no charge, read comp.os.os2.misc for details) to anyone who wants
	it.

	In addition, IBM will start beta testing of OS/2 3.0 Mach in late
	1993 or 1994.  This operating system is based on the Mach microkernel,
	will support multiple processors, and will run on a variety of
	hardware architectures.  It will also run DOS, Windows, 32-bit OS/2,
	and AIX (IBM's version of UNIX) applications.

	So, in effect, there are 3 distinct classes of OS/2 now available:
	OS/2 1.x, OS/2 2.x, and various betas of upcoming versions.


Proposed Charters:

	comp.os.os2.ver1x (unmoderated) will allow users of OS/2 1.x to
	discuss all types of issues regarding OS/2 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3.

	comp.os.os2.beta (unmoderated) will allow beta testers to discuss
	bugs, features, suggestions, and availability of beta versions of
	OS/2, including both OS/2 2.x and OS/2 3.x Mach.  In addition, this
	newsgroup will also be used for discussing desired features for
	future beta releases, especially when a beta version is not an active
	topic of discussion.

	comp.os.os2.announce (moderated by Dave Tholen, e-mail address of
	[email protected]) will carry news and announcements
	related to OS/2:
	(1)  FAQ Lists
	(2)  new applications
	(3)  new releases of OS/2 and accessories, including beta
	(4)  CSD announcements
	(5)  summaries of APARs opened
	(6)  OS/2 Worldwide BBS List
	(7)  Miscellaneous material


Schedule:

	This RFD was issued on January 19, and will last for 30 days.  If
	this RFD is approved, a CFV will be issued on February 19, and
	the voting period will end at 11:59 pm (CST), March 12.

Introduction:

	This is the third and final Call For Votes (CFV) for the creation
	of three OS/2 newsgroups:
	(1)  comp.os.os2.ver1x      (unmoderated)
	(2)  comp.os.os2.beta       (unmoderated)
	(3)  comp.os.os2.announce   (moderated)

	This document contains:
	*  the background showing the need for these newsgroups
	*  the proposed charters for these newsgroups
	*  voting instructions
	*  a voting ballot
	*  some example ballots
	*  the voting rules
	*  the voting schedule
	*  the Mass Acknowledgement


Background:

	OS/2 1.x (that is, versions of OS/2 up to 1.3) is a 16-bit operating
	system designed for the Intel 286 processor.  It supports running
	one DOS application, and multiple OS/2 1.x applications simultaneously
	(IBM is still supporting OS/2 1.x).

	OS/2 2.x (that is, versions of OS/2 since 2.0) is a 32-bit operating
	system designed for the Intel 386SX and higher processors.  It
	supports running multiple DOS, Windows, OS/2 1.x, and OS/2 2.x
	applications simultaneously.

	IBM has allowed testers of various OS/2 2.x betas to discuss their
	opinions and feature requests for the betas in public, with no "non-
	disclosure agreements."  In addition, IBM has and is giving out betas
	of OS/2 2.1 for free (either on CD-ROM for a US$15 shipping fee, or
	from ftp sites such as ftp-os2.nmsu.edu and software.watson.ibm.com
	with no charge, read comp.os.os2.misc for details) to anyone who wants
	it.

	In addition, IBM will start beta testing of OS/2 3.0 Mach in late
	1993 or 1994.  This operating system is based on the Mach microkernel,
	will support multiple processors, and will run on a variety of
	hardware architectures.  It will also run DOS, Windows, 32-bit OS/2,
	and AIX (IBM's version of UNIX) applications.

	So, in effect, there are 3 distinct classes of OS/2 now available:
	OS/2 1.x, OS/2 2.x, and various betas of upcoming versions.


Proposed Charters:

	comp.os.os2.ver1x (unmoderated) will allow users of OS/2 1.x to
	discuss all types of issues regarding OS/2 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3.

	comp.os.os2.beta (unmoderated) will allow beta testers to discuss
	bugs, features, suggestions, and availability of beta versions of
	OS/2, including both OS/2 2.x and OS/2 3.x Mach.  In addition, this
	newsgroup will also be used for discussing desired features for
	future beta releases, especially when a beta version is not an active
	topic of discussion.

	comp.os.os2.announce (moderated by Dave Tholen, e-mail address of
	tholen@galileo.IFA.Hawaii.Edu) will carry news and announcements
	related to OS/2:
	(1)  FAQ Lists
	(2)  new applications
	(3)  new releases of OS/2 and accessories, including beta
	(4)  CSD announcements
	(5)  summaries of APARs opened
	(6)  OS/2 Worldwide BBS List
	(7)  Miscellaneous material


How to Vote:

	To cast your vote, fill out the ballot below and email it to me.
	Many newsreaders will allow e-mail to be sent by replying to this
	post.  Be sure send only the ballot, and edit out the rest of this
	post.

	1)  Cut out the ballot below.

	2)  Type in your vote for each proposed newsgroup:

	    If you favor the charter as proposed, put a "yes" after its name.
	    If you oppose the charter as proposed, put a "no" after its name.
	    To abstain, leave a blank.

	3)  Type in your last name (i.e. your family name), a comma, and
	    your first name (i.e. your personal name).

	4)  Mail your ballot to mlevis@lonestar.utsa.edu before 11:59:59 pm

	  recent vote will be counted.

	* Votes must be mailed to me by the person voting.  Proxy voting,
	  forwarding, posting votes to a newsgroup, etc. will not be counted.

	* Do not ask how the votes are going.  The status of the votings
	  will be revealed only after the poll closes.

	* I will acknowledge votes by Mass Acknowlegement (ACK).  I will
	  post this document twice (see Schedule below).

	* If you need help for using your editor, using e-mail, how
	  voting works in general, etc. then ask an expert at your site.
	  Also see the ``How To Create a New Newsgroup'' article which is
	  posted to news.answers on a regular basis.

	* If you need any clarifications on voting procedures for this
	  CFV, send me e-mail at mlevis@ringer.cs.utsa.edu.


Schedule:

	The voting period began when the news.announce.newgroups moderator
	posted this CFV.

	This is the 3rd and final CFV.  If you have not voted yet, vote
	now!

	The voting deadline is 11:59:59 pm (CST), March 20, 1993.  Votes
	received after that time will not count.  I will post the voting
	results and tally shortly after that date.

	This document contains:
	*  the results of the voting

	*  the voter list



Voting Results:

	| NEWSGROUP NAME       | YES NO  ABS | TOT | Y-N Y/(Y+N) |
	| -------------------- | --- --- --- | --- | --- ------- |
	| comp.os.os2.ver1x    | 311 074 066 | 451 | 237 80.779% |
	| comp.os.os2.beta     | 408 029 014 | 451 | 379 93.364% |
	| comp.os.os2.announce | 428 018 005 | 451 | 410 95.964% |

		* YES shows the number of YES votes
		* NO shows the number of NO votes
		* ABS shows the number of abstains
		* TOT shows the total number of votes (YES+NO+ABS)
		* Y-N shows the margin of YES minus NO votes
		* Y/(Y+N) shows the percentage of YES votes to NO votes


	In order for any newsgroup to be created, both of these two
	conditions must be met:
	(a)  the number of YES votes must exceed the number of NO votes
	     by at least 100 (i.e. YES >= NO + 100, or YES - NO >= 100).
	(b)  the number of YES votes must be at least twice the number
	     of NO votes (i.e. YES >= 2 * NO, or YES - NO >= NO).

	In other words, a newsgroup passes if the following formula is true:
	YES - NO >= max (100, NO), where max() returns the highest number
	given to it.

	(1)  comp.os.os2.ver1x worksheet:
		YES - NO >= max (100, NO)
	        311 - 74 >= max (100, 74)
	        237      >= 100
	     therefore comp.os.os2.ver1x passes

	(2)  comp.os.os2.beta worksheet:
		YES - NO >= max (100, NO)
	        408 - 29 >= max (100, 29)
	        379      >= 100
	     therefore comp.os.os2.beta passes

	(3)  comp.os.os2.announce worksheet:
		YES - NO >= max (100, NO)
	        428 - 18 >= max (100, 18)
	        410      >= 100
	     therefore comp.os.os2.announce passes



Proposed Charters:

	comp.os.os2.ver1x (unmoderated) will allow users of OS/2 1.x to
	discuss all types of issues regarding OS/2 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3.

	comp.os.os2.beta (unmoderated) will allow beta testers to discuss
	bugs, features, suggestions, and availability of beta versions of
	OS/2, including both OS/2 2.x and OS/2 3.x Mach.  In addition, this
	newsgroup will also be used for discussing desired features for
	future beta releases, especially when a beta version is not an active
	topic of discussion.

	comp.os.os2.announce (moderated by Dave Tholen, e-mail address of
	tholen@galileo.IFA.Hawaii.Edu) will carry news and announcements
	related to OS/2:
	(1)  FAQ Lists
	(2)  new applications
	(3)  new releases of OS/2 and accessories, including beta
	(4)  CSD announcements
	(5)  summaries of APARs opened
	(6)  OS/2 Worldwide BBS List
	(7)  Miscellaneous material



Schedule:

	The voting period began when the news.announce.newgroups moderator
	posted the CFV.  It ended at 11:59:59pm (CST), on March 20, 1993.
	Votes received since then are not to be counted.

	As soon as this RESULTS document is posted by David C. Lawrence
	(the news.announce.newgroups moderator), there will be a five day
	waiting period for the net to correct any errors in the voter
	list or the voting procedure.  When this waiting period is over,
	the news.announce.newgroups moderator will send the newgroup
	messages.



Voter List:

	Here is the list of people who have voted and how they voted.
	After each voter's name and e-mail address are their votes for
	comp.os.os2.ver1x, comp.os.os2.beta, and comp.os.os2.announce,
	where 'Y' = YES, 'N' = NO, and '-' = abstain.
