Due to the large quantity of mail, and valuable advice from Richard
Shuford (the info-stratus mailing list coordinator) and Mike Oliver, I
am withdrawing the comp.os.vos and comp.unix.ftx RFD's in favor
of a unified group comp.sys.stratus.

-Bob Wise

---------------------------------------------------------------

Name    : comp.sys.stratus

Charter : Discussions about the Stratus (and IBM System 88) hardware
          and software.  Note that the OS software covered will include

This is a formal Call For Votes (CFV) for the formation of a new Usenet
newsgroup, comp.sys.stratus, as described below.  The RFD for this
group was originated by Bob Wise ([email protected]) and was posted
in news.announce.newgroups on August 4th 1992.  Discussion in
news.groups in the ensuing 30-day period has been favourable, and no
significant objections to the group's name or charter have been raised.

The newsgroup will be constituted as follows:

    Name:	comp.sys.stratus

    Status:	unmoderated

    Charter:    Discussion of Stratus hardware and any and all software
		that runs on it.  Discussion will include Stratus
		hardware badged by other vendors, including the IBM
		System/88 and the Olivetti CPS-32 lines, and will
		include the VOS, FTX I (SVR3) and FTX II (SVR4)
		operating systems and applications executing over those
		operating systems.

Vote addresses:

	"Yes" votes (in support of the formation of comp.sys.stratus as
	described) should be sent to

		[email protected]

	"No" votes (in opposition to the formation of comp.sys.stratus
	as described) should be sent to

		[email protected]

	You may change your vote at any time before the expiry of the
	voting period by simply submitting a new vote.  The last vote
	to be cast by any given individual before the end of the voting
	period will be counted; earlier votes cast by that individual
	will be discarded.

Vote format:

	Votes should carry a subject line confirming the voter's
	intent, either "I vote yes on comp.sys.stratus" or "I vote no
	on comp.sys.stratus" as appropriate.  Variations in subject
	line format will be accepted as long as the intent is clearly
	expressed.  If the vote carries an empty subject line the
	message body will be inspected for confirmation of voting
	intent.

Votes sent as replies to the CFV:

	Votes sent as replies to the originator of this CFV
	([email protected]) will be counted as "yes" or "no" votes
	according to their subject line or message body.

Ambiguous vote resolution:

	Ambiguous votes -- those whose subject lines do not make clear
	the voter's intent, or whose subject line clashes with the vote
	address -- sent to either the vote addresses or the reply
	address will, where possible, be returned to their senders for
	clarification.  Ambiguous votes which can not by returned to
	their senders or for which no clarification is provided will be
	identified in vote mass acknowledgements and in the final vote
	tally.

Voting period:

	Votes will be collected for a period beginning when this CFV is
	approved for publication in news.announce.newgroups and ending
	at midnight on Friday October 2nd 1992.  Votes arriving at the
	voting addresses or the reply address after the expiration of
	the voting period will be discarded.

And remember, it's one person, one vote.

Regards, Mike.

This posting contains the results of the ballot on the formation of
comp.sys.stratus, an unmoderated newsgroup for the discussion of
Stratus computers and all software running on those platforms.

Voting opened on September 4th and closed at midnight on October 2nd
1992.  In that period a total of 203 votes were received, 192 in favour
of the creation of the newsgroup and 11 opposing its formation.  One
ambiguous vote remained unresolved at the close of voting.

These results exceed the guideline requirements for the formation of a
new newsgroup, which are that there be at least 100 more votes in
favour of the group than against, and that at least two thirds of the
votes be in favour.

The guidelines now call for a five-day waiting period, beginning when
this posting appears in news.announce.newgroups, during which
objections to the vote tally or vote procedures may be raised.  The
appropriate forum for such discussion is news.groups, to which
followups have been directed.

If no serious objections are registered by the end of the waiting
period the group will be created by David Lawrence, moderator of
news.announce.newgroups.

Voting results follow:

YES votes, in favour of group creation, were received from:

Of the 192 "yes" votes, 103 were from Stratus itself, and 22 were from a
system called "shared".  It really looks like someone ran some /etc/passwd
files through an automated yes-vote sender.

I have no objection to the group in principle, but it would be nice if the
vote showed a sufficient of support from users at more than two sites.
