The call for votes period has ended with a passing result for
comp.windows.x.pex (unmoderated).

There were 200 yes votes and 11 no votes out of a total of 211 votes.
This meets the Usenet requirements of at least 100 more yes votes than
no votes with at least 2/3 of the total vote being yes votes.

Proposed Charter:

    The new group will not be moderated.

    This newsgroup will be for discussion of the PHIGS Extension to
    the X Window System.  This includes, but is not limited to:

    o	questions about particular implementations including the
	sample implementation (PEX-SI).

    o	questions about writing PEX applications

    o	questions about different API (application programmer
	interfaces) that generate the PEX protocol

    It is expected that discussions relating to both PEX and other
    graphics newsgroups may be cross-posted.

[Please note that followups are directed to news.groups]

There are an increasing numbers of questions about the PHIGS
Extensions to the X Window System (PEX) that arise in a variety 
of newsgroups:

    comp.windows.x
    comp.graphics
    comp.graphics.visualization

This call for discussion proposes that a newsgroup be created for
discussing PEX issues.  This includes, but is not limited to:

    o	questions about particular implementations including the
	sample implementation (PEX-SI).

    o	questions about writing PEX applications

    o	questions about different API (application programmer
	interfaces) that generate the PEX protocol

Just as public releases of the X window system generate a large number
of questions about its use (from either a programmer or user
perspective), questions regarding PEX are beginning to grow in number
with the first public release of the PEX-SI in the R5 release of the X
Window System.  Given the amount of new functionality introduced by
the PEX extension to the core protocol, one can expect many questions
to arise once people start to play with the SI.  The traffic on
comp.windows.x is already quite high and the name doesn't necessarily
imply that one should discuss PEX issues there.  Questions that could
be answered by the FAQ in comp.windows.x are beginning to regularly
appear on comp.graphics.

The name of the proposed new group is up for grabs, but I have a few
suggestions:

    comp.graphics.pex
	+ Applicable because PEX is a graphics protocol.
	- ?

    comp.graphics.phigs
	+ Appropriate because the API distributed with the PEX-SI is a
	  PHIGS API.
	- Inappropriate because the API generating the PEX protocol
	  need not be a PHIGS-ish API (although the semantics of the protocol
	  are still rooted in the PHIGS/PHIGS-PLUS standards).

    comp.windows.pex
	+ Appropriate because PEX doesn't stand by itself, but is an
	  extension of the core X window system protocol.
	- Inappropriate because it may lead to the confusion of PEX
	  with the window system upon which it is based, i.e. the X window
	  system (PEX is not a window system).

    comp.windows.x.pex
	+ Indicates that PEX is defined within the realm of the X
	  window sysetm.
	+ Avoids being tied exclusively to PHIGS-ish APIs.
	+/- Sets a precedent for dividing comp.windows.x into a
	    hierarchy which may or may not be a 'good thing' depending
	    on your viewpoint.  (Should comp.windows.x.intrinsics be
	    created, for instance?)

All discussion, comments and suggestions welcome in news.groups.

X-Status: 

The call for votes period has ended with a passing result for
comp.windows.x.pex (unmoderated).

There were 200 yes votes and 11 no votes out of a total of 211 votes.
This meets the Usenet requirements of at least 100 more yes votes than
no votes with at least 2/3 of the total vote being yes votes.

Proposed Charter:

    The new group will not be moderated.

    This newsgroup will be for discussion of the PHIGS Extension to
    the X Window System.  This includes, but is not limited to:

    o	questions about particular implementations including the
	sample implementation (PEX-SI).

    o	questions about writing PEX applications

    o	questions about different API (application programmer
	interfaces) that generate the PEX protocol

    It is expected that discussions relating to both PEX and other
    graphics newsgroups may be cross-posted.
