Statement of Intent
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To accommodate the heavy traffic on comp.sys.mac.programmer,
offer more focused and manageable forums, and allow for
future growth we propose creation of a new hierarchy composed
of four initial groups.  To accomplish this transformation
we propose the following actions, each of which will require
a separate line vote.  

1 - creation of comp.sys.mac.programmer.info
2 - creation of comp.sys.mac.programmer.tools
3 - creation of comp.sys.mac.programmer.help
4 - changing the name of comp.sys.mac.programmer
to comp.sys.mac.programmer.main


Explanation of Process
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A minimum of 21 days after posting of the formal RFD, a 
post will be made, prefixed with "CFV".  The CFV (call for
votes) will be made by a neutral party, and will contain 
information about how to vote.  Each person choosing to
vote will have to vote separately on each issue (YES, NO,
or abstain).  For each proposal to pass, the number of "YES"
votes must exceed the "NO" votes by 100, and be greater than
two thirds of the total votes.


Description of Proposed Groups
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

comp.sys.mac.programmer.info  
============================

A moderated newsgroup for posting FAQ's, digests, convention 
and release announcements, "columns" by developers and industry 
insiders, contact information, reviews, bulletins and any 
frequently requested information relating to development for 
the Macintosh computer system.

comp.sys.mac.programmer.tools  
=============================        

An unmoderated newsgroup for the discussion of development
tools for the Macintosh.  Bug reports, advocacy debates,
enhancement proposals, release announcements and workarounds 
would all be fair game.

comp.sys.mac.programmer.help   
============================

An unmoderated, approachable and tolerant forum for requesting
and supplying help with general issues of macintosh programming.
A place for beginners to take first steps and for aces and
wizards to explore new aspects macintosh programming.  

comp.sys.mac.programmer.main
============================

An unmoderated forum for discussion of the unique macintosh
program structure, where issues relating to the main event loop,
toolbox routines, operating system structure, and other
fundamental concerns will be addressed.

CHARTERS:

comp.sys.mac.programmer.info  
============================

  A moderated newsgroup for posting FAQ's, digests, convention 
  and release announcements, "columns" by developers and industry 
  insiders, contact information, reviews, bulletins and any 
  frequently requested information relating to development for 
  the Macintosh computer system.
    
  This group will be moderated by MacTech magazine 
  <[email protected]> with the following mandate:     
           
  Moderator's Mandate:
  --------------------
        
    The moderator will assure that all contributions get posted,
    routing those that are not appropriate to csmp.info to the
    appropriate forum, and posting a pointer to them on csmp.info.  
    The decision as to what is appropriate will be based on a 
    comp.sys.mac.programmer.info FAQ, that will contain a list of 
    acceptable types and unacceptable types of postings and a short 
    description of each.  This document will be posted monthly on 
    csmp.info and subject to revision.  Additions to the material 
    list can be made at the moderators discretion based on at least 
    four requests from separate users.  If at least four 
    separate users object to any addition, a RFD and CFV on the 
    issue will be required.  If any user objects to the moderators 
    actions, the moderator may be removed by a specific RFD and CFV 
    on this issue.  The RFD and CFV must include the name of proposed
    replacement who is willing to accept the responsibilities.

    Initially the following types of posts will be considered
    acceptable:

    [Ptr] : posts that give information pointing to the locations
            of more detailed information.  eg contact info for
            Metrowerks, lists of ftp sites with source code,
            descriptions of csmp newsgroups, etc
                    
    [FAQ] : frequently aked questions with answers.  eg how
            to use an external editor with SC++, what are
            the universal headers, how to hide the menubar, etc

    [Review] : unbiased evaluations of various programming resources.
            eg features in SC++, what was discusses at WWDC,
            what articles were in _develop_ 19 or MacTech 
            Oct '94.

    [Note] : brief announcements.  eg Symantec 7.0.4 update
            available on Sumex, MacWorld Boston Aug 5th, New
            Book by Dave Mark (Review to follow)

comp.sys.mac.programmer.tools  
=============================        

  An unmoderated newsgroup for the discussion of development
  tools for the Macintosh.  Bug reports, advocacy debates,
  enhancement proposals, release announcements and workarounds 
  would all be fair game.

comp.sys.mac.programmer.help   
============================

  An unmoderated, approachable and tolerant forum for specific
  questions and direct answers about Macintosh programming.
  Requests for recommendations on how to start programming, help with 
  specific code, or requests for contact information would all
  be common questions.

comp.sys.mac.programmer.misc
============================

  An unmoderated forum for discussion of Macintosh programming.
  Program structure, literature, new technologies, support services, 
  events, techniques, philosophies, and languages as they relate
  to Macintosh programming will all be expected topics of discussion.

 
RATIONALE

  To accommodate the heavy traffic on comp.sys.mac.programmer,
  offer more focused and manageable forums, and allow for
  future growth we propose creation of a new hierarchy composed
  of four initial groups.
