                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
              unmoderated group comp.programming.contests

Summary        : Announcements, discussion and results of programming contests.
Proponent      : Randy Saint <[email protected]>

This is a formal request for discussion on the creation of an
unmoderated newsgroup, comp.programming.contests.

This RFD has been posted in accordance with the Guidelines for
Newsgroup Creation. This RFD is being posted to the following relevant
newsgroups:

   news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, comp.programming,
   rec.games.programmer, comp.os.msdos.programmer,
   comp.sys.amiga.programmer, comp.sys.mac.programmer.misc,
   comp.unix.programmer, comp.ai.games.

The RFD and/or CFV may be posted to related mailing lists.
Discussion will take place in news.groups only.   Please post
follow-ups to news.groups only.

This is not a call for votes.  Please don't vote now.

                               CHARTER

The purpose of this newsgroup is a central location to post
announcements, discussion, and results of programming contests.

                                   
                              RATIONALE

At the moment there is not one specific group where people can
go to find out information about programming contests.  Currently,
programmers must scan several different groups looking for posts
announcing contests.

Also, traditionally organizers of contests must create mailing
lists for each contest.  Then, each programmer's mailbox is
flooded with conversation about the contest.

This would also be an area to post results of programming contests.

                              PROCEDURE

After a discussion period of 30 days, if there are no overwhelming
objections to the formation of the group, a CFV will be posted to the
same groups as this RFD.  The voting period will be as outlined in the
guidelines (21-31 days).  If the vote passes by a majority of 2/3, and
there are 100 more yes votes than no votes, then the group will be created.

CHARTER

The purpose of this newsgroup is a central location to post announcements,
discussion, and results of programming contests.  This group is intended
for contests where the entrants write software, not WWW net hunts or logo
design contests.


RATIONALE

This will provide a central group where programmers can go to find
announcements of upcoming contests, discussion of specific contests and
programming contests in general, and results of past contests.  This will
also alleviate contest organizers from having to create separate mailing
lists for every contest held.
