   Request for Discussion (RFD) of comp.unix.user-friendly.
--------------------------------------------------------

I propose a new unmoderated newsgroup called comp.unix.user-friendly
with the aim of creating a forum for discussing problems/suggestions
and opinions relating to the user-friendliness of UNIX and UNIX software.

   Proposed Name of Group
-------------------------
   comp.unix.user-friendly

   Purpose of New Newsgroup
---------------------------

UNIX has a reputation of being unfriendly - making it difficult 
for new users to use.  This group would be a forum for discussion 
about UNIX user-friendliness and the availability
of user-friendly software for UNIX.

Presently, the above is done on an ad-hoc basis on a number
of groups such as comp.editors, comp.unix.questions, etc.  Posts presently
asking about user-friendly utilities/software for UNIX usually 
attract some flamage and seem out of place in these groups.  
This group would give users a forum where "user-friendliness" 
is meant to be the norm, not the exception.

The following would be considered typical for this group:-

  - discussion about what user friendly software (editors, utilites, etc)
       are available for UNIX.

  - discussion/opinions about ways of making "default" UNIX user setups more
       user-friendly

  - announcements of new "user-friendly" software and utilities 

  - discussion on how UNIX and UNIX software could be made more friendly.

  - discussion on what makes a particular part of UNIX or UNIX software so 
       unfriendly/friendly

---------------------------------------------------------------
 
   Discussion of this RFD is to take place in news.groups.  For those reading
other newsgroups, the followup to this post should appear automatically
in news.groups.

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

   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 one month
 (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 favorable., 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.

   2ND  Request for Discussion (RFD) of comp.unix.user-friendly.
----------------------------------------------------------------

This is the second RFD for comp.unix.user-friendly and takes
into account various opinions expressed in news.groups.  The aims
and definitions have been made much clearer than previously as this
was a common complaint about the previous RFD.  Distribution of
this RFD has changed, based on discussions, to include 
comp.human-factors and drop comp.unix.wizards.

I propose a new unmoderated newsgroup called comp.unix.user-friendly
with the aim of creating a forum for discussing problems/suggestions
and opinions relating to the user-friendliness of UNIX and UNIX
software.

   Proposed Name of Group
-------------------------
   comp.unix.user-friendly

   Purpose of New Newsgroup
---------------------------

UNIX has a reputation of being unfriendly for non-programmers -
making it difficult to use by those who need not know Unix, such as
the average user in the commercial business world.
This group would be a forum for discussion about UNIX user-friendliness
and the availability of user-friendly software for UNIX.

Presently, the above is done on an ad-hoc basis on a number of
groups such as comp.editors, comp.unix.questions, etc.
Posts presently asking about user-friendly utilities/software for
UNIX usually attract some flamage and seem out of place in these
groups, because of non-obvious differences between friendliness of
Unix towards programmers and unfriendliness towards non-programmers.
This group would give non-programming users a forum where their type
of "user-friendliness" is meant to be the norm, not the exception.

The following would be considered typical for this group:-

  - To clarify definitions like "user-friendliness" for the relevant
    groups of users.

  - Discussion about what user friendly software (editors, utilites, etc)
    are available for UNIX.

  - Discussion/opinions about ways of making "default" UNIX user setups
    more user-friendly.

  - Announcements of new "user-friendly" software and utilities.

  - Discussion on how UNIX and UNIX software could be made more friendly
    without endangering the work methods of the Unix programmers who
    feels Unix *is* already friendly for them.

  - Discussion on what makes a particular part of UNIX or UNIX software
    so unfriendly/friendly, and for which subgroup of users.
