I feel that changes should be made to soon as opposed to  late.  With that in mind, I submit the following.  Your thoughts or  changes are appreciated.  This naming is in part to convert from  rec.woodworking to rec.crafts.woodworking.misc, this is at the advice of  [email protected]      In large part these changes are based on the fact that many of  rec.woodworking's readers , pay a connect time and/or a disk usage based  fees.  I personally have a Unix shell account, so these consideration do  not effect me.  I feel, however that it is only reasonable to take these  changes into consideration.     I would like to thank the following for their input Eric Kasten, Chris  Paris, Andrew J Rappaport, David C Lawrence, and Mark Moraes.   ___________________________________________________  1st Formal REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION  There has been much talk in rec.crafts.woodworking about splitting into  subgroups.
