Subject: vote on comp.periphs.scsi

Keywords: posted


I put forth the idea of comp.periphs.scsi about a month ago on
comp.periphs and a few other groups.  Reaction to the idea was almost
entirely positive, reaction to the name was pretty good.  A question
arose to whether it wouldn't be better to have a
comp.bus.<name-your-bus>, not a bad idea for future consideration.

So I'd like to call for votes on comp.periphs.scsi.  Please mail
votes to
	To: [email protected]
with the header
	Subject: YES vote on comp.periphs.scsi
or	Subject: NO vote on comp.periphs.scsi

I'll collect these, tabluate them, and let you know what the
results are within the month.  I'll also send out requests
for votes to several other groups (the comp.*.hardware,
several comp.sys.* groups, comp.periphs etc) as I notice the
need.

Please redirect followups to comp.periphs for substantive SCSI
discussion, news.groups for formal or procedural issues.

Here is the survey result for comp.periphs.scsi.

Yes: 163
 No:   6

comp.periphs.scsi meets the official newgroup requirements.  An
official newgroup message will go out Wednesday, 7 March 1990.

comp.periphs.scsi is intended for the discussion of peripherals
that support the SCSI protocol, discussion of that protocol and
its evolution, reviews of brand-name products, sources for SCSI
device drivers, and whatever else happens to come along.  A 
more formal charter will accompany the newgroup message I send
out once the official one is released.

Thanks for your support.
