This is a call for discussion regarding the creation of a new
group called comp.unix.sco.

This group would be intended for postings regarding all products
>From Santa Cruz Operations;  Including but not limited to SCO
Xenix, SCO Unix, Xsight, (ODT) Open Desk Top, Lyrix, VP/ix, SCO
Professional, etc.

Most posting for SCO are currently being posted under
unix.comp.xenix.  This group is for posting regarding all Xenix
systems not just SCO.  SCO is currently shipping SCO Unix
which is no longer called Xenix.

There is currently a group called comp.unix.i386.  This group is
for posting regarding unix on Intel 386 based computers.  SCO
does run on 386 computers but not exclusively 386 machines.

For these reasons there is confusion to where posting regarding
SCO products should be posted.

It is my suggestion that a new group called comp.unix.sco be
created rather then renaming the group comp.unix.xenix.

                   2nd REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
                           comp.unix.sco
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Group Name:     comp.unix.sco
Status:         Unmoderated
Summary:        Discussion of all aspects of SCO products including
                SCO UNIX and SCO OpenDesktop.
                
Distribution:   World

Proposed Newsgroup line:

comp.unix.sco        Discussion of all Santa Cruz Operation products.

                                CHARTER
                                -------

SCO UNIX has a very large user-base possibly has the largest Intel-based 
UNIX user-base in the world.  This newsgroup would be used to discuss all 
SCO products, including the Operating System, Networking Utilities, and 
all other SCO products.  



RATIONALE
---------

There are biz.sco groups, but these are not widely distributed and are
(theoretically) reserved for commercial announcements.  There is also
a comp.unix.xenix.sco group, but this focuses on the older Xenix product
which doesn't resemble SCO UNIX very much any more.  This newsgroup
should be created in the same spirit as comp.unix.unixware and 
comp.unix.solaris where users and fans of SCO products and hang out and 
discuss various problems, new features, and new products.

I would also hope that various SCO engineers would volunteer their time to
help, as would various SCO users all over the world.

It has been suggested that comp.unix.xenix.sco remain in place for discussion
of Xenix products, and comp.unix.sco be for UNIX related products. 

If after 6 months to 1 year of activity it is found that a heirarchy
under comp.unix.sco groups is needed, then a new CFV should be done.


This RFD is being submitted to news.announce.newgroups (via e-mail) in 
compliance with the usual guidelines.  It is also being posted to 
the following groups:

biz.sco.general
comp.unix.sys5.r3
comp.unix.xenix.sco


This RFD will last for 21 to 30 days.  Assuming that there are no
objections, there will then be a call for votes (CFV) that will last 21 
days.  As usual creation of the newsgroup requires 100 more yes votes 
than no votes and also two yes votes for every no vote.

        Request For Discussion:  comp.unix.sco.* newsgroups

Two RFDs were recently issued for a single new newsgroup, comp.unix.sco,
lacking acknowledgment or consideration of the long-existing and highly
respected biz.sco.* newsgroup hierarchy.  Sufficient dissent resulted,
both publicly and privately, to warrant taking the discussion "offline".
The considered consensus of the participants in resulting offline
discussions is that a migration to the "comp" hierarchy is inevitable,
and that such a migration must be done in a rational and reasonable manner
taking all existing SCO-related newsgroups into account.  As the resulting
new proposal is significantly different from the original, we are
presenting it here for further public discussion before calling for a
vote.  If substantial agreement is posted regarding this RFD, the CFV
will be issued in 28 days, on Tue Jan 10, 1995.  The extra time allotted
for discussion compensates for the Christmas holiday period.

The essence of the new proposal is to move and restructure the existing
biz.sco.* newsgroups into a comp.unix.sco hierarchy.  A successful CFV
will result in removal of the existing biz.sco.* hierarchy in accordance
with the biz.* newsgroup creation/removal guidelines, as outlined below.

The canonical descriptions of the existing biz.sco.* newsgroups are:

 biz.sco.announce       SCO and related product announcements. (Moderated)
 biz.sco.binaries       Binary packages for SCO Xenix, UNIX, or ODT. (Moderated)
 biz.sco.general        Q&A, discussions and comments on SCO products.
 biz.sco.magazine       To discuss SCO Magazine and its contents.
 biz.sco.opendesktop    ODT environment and applications tech info, q&a.
 biz.sco.sources        Source code ported to an SCO operating environment. (Moderated)
 biz.sco.vtcl           Questions, answers and discussion of SCO Visual Tcl

The proposal is to create the following newsgroups:

  comp.unix.sco.misc (rename/merge from biz.sco.{general,opendesktop,magazine})
  comp.unix.sco.programmer (rename/rescope from biz.sco.vtcl)
  comp.unix.sco.announce [moderated] (rename from biz.sco.announce)

The biz.sco.binaries and biz.sco.sources newsgroups are now redundant
given the proliferation of well-connected public archive sites.  They
would *not* be migrated to the new hierarchy.

As suggested by the proponents of the first two recent RFDs, the primary
general rationales for the migration are:

  Although frequently posted FAQs illustrate the location of existing
  biz.sco.* newsgroups, it has been repeatedly demonstrated that new
  posters often do not know where to find them.  Newcomers expect to find
  the SCO newsgroups alongside peer operating systems like Novell Unixware
  (comp.unix.unixware), IBM AIX (comp.unix.aix), and Sun Solaris
  (comp.unix.solaris).  Neglecting the biz.sco.* sub-hierarchy, they post
  to less specific newsgroups (comp.unix.pc-clone.32bit, comp.unix.sys5.r3),
  or to completely inappropriate newsgroups (comp.unix.xenix.sco,
  comp.unix.unixware).

  Some posters in relatively weakly connected corners of the globe (South
  Africa, New Zealand, eastern Europe etc.) have continuing difficulty
  getting reliable feeds of the biz.sco.* newsgroups because upstream sites
  may not carry them.  Sometimes people don't even know the newsgroups exist
  because upstream site administrators omit the entire biz.* hierarchy,
  despite ongoing efforts to enhance global propagation of the biz.*
  hierarchy.  Distribution of the existing SCO newsgroups under the biz
  hierarchy is still less than that anticipated within the "comp" hierarchy.

Specific rationale for each proposed change:

comp.unix.sco.misc (rename/merge from biz.sco.{general,opendesktop,magazine})

  We expect this to be the main new group, carrying the traffic of the
  existing .general, .opendesktop, and .magazine newsgroups.  The standard
  name for general newsgroups in the comp.* hierarchy is .misc.

  Originally, the "general" newsgroup was intended for SCO UNIX o/s
  issues, SCO-compatible applications, and generally related political
  commentary.  The "opendesktop" newsgroup was to facilitate discussion
  pertinent to the bundles contained in the ODT distribution, specifically
  issues of running DOS under UNIX, windowing - including X11 with Motif,
  usually on larger, connected servers, and resulting networking issues in
  their various supported forms.  The distinction between the general and
  opendesktop newsgroups has weakened as the SCO operating environment has
  evolved toward supporting larger networked UNIX server installations.
  The need for a separate desktop group has waned as advanced discussions
  involving networking and server issues have already mostly migrated to
  the .general newsgroup.  The .magazine group never generated much traffic;
  discussions about SCO-specific magazines can easily be carried within a
  general group.  Private discussions mostly suggest that a single newsgroup
  for the current combined volume of the existing .general, .opendesktop and
  .magazine newsgroups (937 articles in the previous 30 days, as of this
  writing), even taking into account anticipated doubling under the comp
  hierarchy, should be manageable.  Further splits could be addressed in a
  future RFD as increased volume may warrant.  We anticipate additional
  public discussion on this issue, as there may be strong feeling that
  this should be done initially as a result of this RFD.

comp.unix.sco.programmer (rename/rescope from biz.sco.vtcl)

  The .vtcl group has only recently seen any noticeable traffic.
  We expect that merging this discussion area with the considerable
  traffic about programming issues in general (porting, development system
  questions, device driver writing, etc.) will provide an appropriate
  developer and programmer specific discussion area.  ".programmer" is
  the standard name for such newsgroups under the comp.* hierarchy.

comp.unix.sco.announce [moderated] (rename from biz.sco.announce)

  biz.sco.announce is a proven valuable source for SCO, 3rd party vendor,
  and public domain software, hardware, and service announcements.
  Similar newsgroups currently exist in the comp.* hierarchy, e.g.
  comp.sys.sun.announce and comp.os.ms-windows.announce.  Assuming removal
  of the rest of the biz.sco hierarchy, it is sensible to move this group.
  Perusal of the biz.sco.announce archives indicates that approved postings
  are in keeping with accepted "Big-7" standards.  The current moderator
  of biz.sco.announce, Ed Hew <[email protected]>, has agreed to
  continue in this capacity in an interim role at minimum.

  Anyone wanting to verify netiquette compliance is welcome to access
  the complete historical biz.sco.announce archives:
    URL:  ftp://ftp.xenitec.on.ca/pub/news/scoann

DELETE biz.sco.binaries and biz.sco.sources

  These newsgroups have been morbidly quiet for more than a year; we
  propose to remove and not replace them.  Many FTP and WWW sites are
  now available with suitable material, and SCO provides a CD-ROM with
  most of the popular packages in both precompiled and source form.

Mailing Lists:

The various existing biz.sco.* discussion and announcement newsgroups
are currently bi-directionally gated to mailing lists for the convenience
of those who cannot receive them via USENET news.  The creator and
maintainer, Ed Hew of XeniTec, has agreed to restructure these mailing
lists to reflect whatever new SCO newsgroup structure emerges.

Several FAQ articles are currently maintained by Ed Hew, Stephen Dunn
and Bela Lubkin.  These parties have agreed to revise and move their
postings into the new hierarchy as appropriate.

RATIONALE

   The essence of the proposal is to move and restructure the existing
   biz.sco.* newsgroups into a comp.unix.sco hierarchy.  A successful CFV
   will result in removal of the existing biz.sco.* hierarchy in accordance
   with the biz.* newsgroup creation/removal guidelines.

 comp.unix.sco.misc (rename/merge from biz.sco.{general,opendesktop,magazine})
 comp.unix.sco.programmer (rename/rescope from biz.sco.vtcl)
 comp.unix.sco.announce [moderated] (rename from biz.sco.announce)

   The obsolete biz.sco binaries and sources newsgroups would not be migrated.

   Although frequently posted FAQs illustrate the location of existing
   biz.sco.* newsgroups, it has been repeatedly demonstrated that new
   posters often do not know where to find them.  Newcomers expect to find
   the SCO newsgroups alongside peer operating systems like Novell Unixware
   (comp.unix.unixware), IBM AIX (comp.unix.aix), and Sun Solaris
   (comp.unix.solaris).  Neglecting the biz.sco.* sub-hierarchy, they post
   to less specific newsgroups (comp.unix.pc-clone.32bit, comp.unix.sys5.r3),
   or to completely inappropriate newsgroups (comp.unix.xenix.sco,
   comp.unix.unixware).

   Some posters in relatively weakly connected corners of the globe (South
   Africa, New Zealand, eastern Europe etc.) have continuing difficulty
   getting reliable feeds of the biz.sco.* newsgroups because upstream sites
   may not carry them.  Sometimes people don't even know the newsgroups exist
   because upstream site administrators omit the entire biz.* hierarchy,
   despite ongoing efforts to enhance global propagation of the biz.*
   hierarchy.  Distribution of the existing SCO newsgroups under the biz
   hierarchy is still less than that anticipated within the "comp" hierarchy.
