	This is the call for votes regarding the creation of the news
group "comp.windows.x.apps".

	To cast your vote, send email to "[email protected]", and be
sure to clearly indicate whether you vote yes or no.  Preferably, yes votes
should state "I vote yes for comp.windows.x.apps" and no votes should
state "I vote no for comp.windows.x.apps" somewhere in the message.

	Votes are only counted if sent through email.  Posted votes are
not valid.  

	This call for votes will end April 29th, 1992.  Votes RECEIVED
after 23:59 GMT of April 29th will not be counted.  At the end of the 
voting period I will talley the yes and no votes and post a summary.

	Creation of the newsgroup at the end of the voting period depends
upon the following conditions :

> AFTER the waiting period, and if there were no serious objections that might
>   invalidate the vote, and if 100 more valid YES/create votes are received
>   than NO/don't create AND at least 2/3 of the total number of valid votes
>   received are in favor of creation, a newgroup control message may be sent
>   out.  If the 100 vote margin or 2/3 percentage is not met, the group should
>   not be created."

	Pending is the official charter for the proposed group :

-------------------------- BEGIN CHARTER -------------------------------
Name   : comp.windows.x.apps
Status : Non-Moderated

     This newsgroup would be for the discussion of X Windows
applications, both public-domain and commercial (where appropriate).
Its main purpose would be to facilitate the finding of specific X
Window applications (such as ftp sites for those applications which
are in the public-domain), to discuss which application is best suited
to particular situations, to provide a medium where one can review
applications, and to provide a place where functional questions can be
asked about X Window programs.

     The newsgroup would cover all forms of X applications, regardless
of the widget set(s) used or the program's function.

     The newsgroup would not be intended for Xlib or widget
programming discussion, but would encourage discussion of application
compilation or modifications, provided they are not more suited to an
Xlib or widget question.

	I would like to request discussion for the creation of a new x
newsgroup.
  

Name : comp.windows.x.apps
Non-Moderated

Proposed Charter :
------------------

     This newsgroup would be for the discussion of X Windows
applications, both public-domain and commercial (where appropriate).
Its main purpose would be to facilitate the finding of specific X
Window applications (such as ftp sites for those applications which
are in the public-domain), to discuss which application is best suited
to particular situations, to provide a medium where one can review
applications, and to provide a place where functional questions can be
asked about X Window programs.

     The newsgroup would cover all forms of X applications, regardless
of the widget set(s) used or the program's function.

     The newsgroup would not be intended for Xlib or widget
programming discussion, but would encourage discussion of application
compilation or modifications, provided they are not more suited to an
Xlib or widget question.


Reasons for Group's Creation : 
----------------------------
     There are an enormous amount of applications out there in the
public domain alone.  Commercial programs are likely even more
numerous.  For this reason this news group is proposed - to facilitate
questions and problems with the programs out there.  Many problems and
questions are common, and the chances that someone out there has
already encountered a particular one are very good.

     Comp.windows.x is becomming increasingly more trafficed, and it
becomes harder and harder to spend the time needed to read through all
the articles.  It would be beneficial if the purely programming
problems could be left more isolated.  This new group would help to do
this.

     Also related to the heavy traffic comp.windows.x currently
recieves, posters are less likely to have someone read their
particular posting amid the vast quantity of articles posted.  This
would provide a place where they have a much better chance of being
heard by those most likely able to help.
