                   REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION
 
      Group Name:  comp.sys.arm
          Status:  unmoderated
    Distribution:  world
         Summary:  The ARM processor architecture and support chips
      Proponents:  Kevin Wheatley <[email protected]>
                   Paul Hedderly <[email protected]>
                   Clive Jones <[email protected]>
                   Philip R. Banks <[email protected]>

This is a formal Request for Discussion (RFD) for the creation of the
unmoderated newsgroup comp.sys.arm.

A Call For Votes will be posted within 21 to 30 days following the
first posting of this message, assuming general agreement is reached.
The vote will be administered by a neutral third party, not
participating in the debate.

This RFD, and any resulting CFV, will be posted in the following
newsgroups:
  news.announce.newgroups, news.groups
  comp.sys.acorn.tech, comp.sys.acorn.announce
  comp.sys.newton.programmer, comp.sys.newton.announce
  rec.games.video.3do, comp.arch

In addition, a brief pointer to this RFD, and any resulting CFV, will
be posted in the following less closely-related newsgroups:
  comp.sys.ti, comp.dsp, comp.lsi, comp.multimedia,
  comp.sys.handhelds, comp.sys.palmtops, rec.games.programmer

All discussion of the proposed new group should take place in the
news.groups newsgroup. Please direct any e-mail correspondence to all
the proponents, rather than any one of them.

CHARTER

comp.sys.arm will be an unmoderated forum for discussion of the ARM
processor architecture, and devices that implement it, as well as
support chips such as memory and video controllers. Suitable topics
include programming and hardware integration techniques, software,
evaluation and benchmarking, book reviews and announcements.

Various ARM-related products already have their own newsgroups. Where
this is the case, discussions not of general interest to all users of
the ARM processor architecture should use these other newsgroups in
preference to comp.sys.arm .

RATIONALE

Until now, some discussion of the ARM architecture has been seen in
various technical newsgroups related to products that include ARM
processors, or in more general newsgroups such as comp.arch. Other
discussion currently has no obviously suitable newsgroup.

The aim of the comp.sys.arm group would be to provide a central forum
where all users of ARM technology could exchange ideas and information
as the user community expands and diversifies. It is hoped that
repositories for coding examples, circuit diagrams, conference papers,
etc. would accumulate. In addition, announcements of general interest
to users of ARM technology could be made by Advanced RISC Machines, its
semiconductor partners, and companies including ARM processors in
their products.

HOW TO VOTE

Send MAIL to:   [email protected]
Just Replying should work if you are not reading this on a mailing list.

Your mail message should contain one of the following statements:
      I vote YES on comp.sys.arm
      I vote NO on comp.sys.arm

You may also ABSTAIN in place of YES/NO - this will not affect the outcome.
Anything else may be rejected by the automatic vote counting program.  The
votetaker will respond to your received ballots with a personal acknowledge-
ment by mail - if you do not receive one within several days, try again.

There were 349 YES votes and 19 NO votes, for a total of 368 valid votes.

For group passage, YES votes must be at least 2/3 of all valid (YES and NO)
votes.   There also must be at least 100 more YES votes than NO votes. 

There is a five day discussion period after these results are posted.  If no
serious allegations of voting irregularities are raised, the moderator of
news.announce.newgroups will create the group shortly thereafter.
