	      ***** OFFICIAL REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD) *****
			PLEASE READ COMPLETELY


PROPOSAL 1:		RENAME comp.unix.unixware to comp.unix.unixware.misc
                        (maintain status as unmoderated)

PROPOSAL 2:		CREATE comp.unix.unixware.announce (moderated)

PROPOSER:		Evan Leibovitch ([email protected])

CROSS-POSTED:		news.announce.newsgroups
			news.groups
			comp.unix.unixware
			comp.unix.sys5.r4
			comp.unix.pc-clone.32bit
			comp.sys.novell


BACKGROUND:

Traffic in the existing comp.unix.unixware newsgroup has grown to the
point where splitting it into multiple groups has been proposed and
endorsed by those readers of the group who participated in a straw poll.
Consensus followed that the first 'split' allow a new group to be created
in which 'announcements' from users or vendors could be posted, free
of side-discussions, in the manner of numerous "announce" newsgroups
already existing in the comp.* namespace.


RATIONALE/CHARTER FOR comp.unix.unixware.announce:

To provide a low-noise forum for official announcements from Novell,
users and third-parties supporting UnixWare products. Product
announcements, listings of events and functions, official statements,
availability of archives sites storing UnixWare binaries or
documentation, price lists, press releases and position papers are
all welcome. Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) files, including but
not limited to the extensive UnixWare FAQ maintained by Jim Vlcek,
are also welcome.

Creation of this group would make the existing UnixWare mailing list
gateway easier to manage; it would make useful announcements easier to
archive and/or allow different Usenet expiry times vis. the existing
group.


RATIONALE FOR MODERATION OF comp.unix.unixware.announce:

It is intended that this group will be restricted to one-time-only
announcements, without discussion. The moderation would merely enforce
this simple policy, without being judgemental regarding content or
source.

All articles posted to this group would include a header re-directing
followup discussions of any kind to comp.unix.unixware. Articles will
be encouraged to contain an "Archive-Name" header for the benefit of
sites with automatic archiving software.

The proposed moderator is myself; Evan Leibovitch, creator of the
original Univel mailing list and later the newsgroups biz,univel.misc
comp.unix.unixware.

Why? Nobody else has come forward during initial discussions. I believe
as a UnixWare VAR I ride a reasonable middle ground between Novell and
end users, as to be not overly siding with one side or another. Indeed,
it seems from this viewpoint that most of the traffic in the newsgroups
so far has not been adversarial. I do not consider the moderation of
this group to be at all controversial.


RATIONALE FOR RENAMING comp.unix.unixware TO comp.unix.unixware.misc:

While the original idea was simply to create a moderated .announce group,
David Lawrence has suggested that it is preferable to rename the current
group at the same time, thus maintaining a consistent namespace. This
will make it easier to create further groups under a comp.unix.unixware.*
hierarchy in the future should the need arise. It will also reduce
cross-posting and simplify news-system administration.


PROCEDURE:

Discussion will take for 30 days from the date of this posting in
news.groups. All discussion - both for and against - will take place
in news.groups.

At the end of this time a call for votes (CFV) will be announced and
voting procedures by a neutral third party described. The two issues,
the renaming of comp.unix.unixware to comp.unix.unixware.misc and the
creation of comp.unix.unixware.announce, will be voted on separately
but described together in a single CFV posting.

What is the Process of Creating a Newsgroup?
-------------------------------------------

---->(a) RFD: Discussion, i.e., public hearing to take place 
	 in the newsgroup news.groups for approximately 30 days) 
     (b) CFV: Call for votes (the voting period will be about 25 days)
     (c) Counting of votes and public display of votes
     (d) Announcement of new newsgroup

(a)-->(b)  assumes  no major disagreements about this newsgroup during
discussion. (c)-->(d) assumes that the vote is favourable., i.e.,

		    Y > N+100 .and. Y > (2/3)(Y+N)

Y  being  the  number of YES votes, N being the number of NO votes for
the creation of the proposed newsgroup.

Thank you.

it seems from this viewpoint that most of the traffic in the newsgroups
so far has not been adversarial. I do not consider the moderation of
this group to be at all controversial.


CHARTER OF comp.unix.unixware.misc:

This will be almost identical to the original charter of the group
comp.unix.unixware, which itself is derived from biz.univel.misc.

This is a general-purpose forum for discussion about products of
Novell's Unix Systems Group, primarily its implementation of Unix
for PC-architecture systems sold under the name UnixWare. Product
announcements and advertisements are now discouraged; postings of
this kind should use the new group comp.unix.unixware.announce.


RATIONALE FOR RENAMING comp.unix.unixware TO comp.unix.unixware.misc:

While the original idea was simply to create a moderated .announce group,
David Lawrence has suggested that it is preferable to rename the current
group at the same time, thus maintaining a consistent namespace. This
will make it easier to create further groups under a comp.unix.unixware.*
hierarchy in the future should the need arise. It will also reduce
cross-posting and simplify news-system administration.

As comp.unix.unixware was gatewayed to the 'univel' mailing list, the
comp.unix.unixware.misc will be, also once renamed.
