Request For Discussion to Create USENET Newsgroup

Name:	sci.astro.fits

Status:	Unmoderated

Charter:

  This newsgroup will provide a forum for the discussion of all topics
  concerning the FITS [Flexible Image Transport System] data format.
  The newsgroup will be interfaced to the Email exploder
  [email protected] so that traffic originating on either the
  newsgroup on the exploder will be automatically transmitted to the
  other. This new newsgroup will replace existing newsgroup
  alt.sci.astro.fits.  

Reference Entry:

  sci.astro.fits	Issues related to FITS [Flexible Image Transport System]

Initial Discussion:

  On 19 December I posted a message to alt.sci.astro.fits entitled
  "Create sci.astro.fits?". I received four replies, three in favor
  and one opposed. The person opposed was not really in opposition to
  a FITS newsgroup per se, but rather to proliferation of special
  interest groups. We had an exchange of Email which explored the class
  of related issues, but the heart of the difference of opinion is
  fairly well conveyed by the appended extract, in which my remarks
  are labelled "DW" and the other person's opinions are labelled "OP": 

  OP> I object in principle to groups on Usenet (which is
  OP> essentially a general purpose public broadcasting system) which have a
  OP> total potential worldwide readership numbered in the thousands, most
  OP> of whom don't know about Usenet in the first place, and who are
  OP> concentrated at only a small minority of the sites.  
 
  DW> Very few groups on Usenet are read by even 10% of the readers. In
  DW> fact, the purpose of Usenet is to provide a communication mechanism
  DW> for modest-sized subsets of the community who have specialized
  DW> interests. In other words, you are objecting in principle to the main
  DW> *principle* of Usenet! Each of these small communities agrees to carry
  DW> the traffic of the other communities, and thus all benefit.

Request For Discussion to Create USENET Newsgroup

Name:	sci.astro.fits

Status:	Unmoderated

Charter:

  This newsgroup will provide a forum for the discussion of all topics
  concerning the FITS [Flexible Image Transport System] data format.
  The newsgroup will be interfaced to the Email exploder
  [email protected] so that traffic originating on either the
  newsgroup on the exploder will be automatically transmitted to the
  other. This new newsgroup will replace existing newsgroup
  alt.sci.astro.fits.  

Reference Entry:

  sci.astro.fits	Issues related to FITS [Flexible Image Transport System]

Initial Discussion:

  On 19 December I posted a message to alt.sci.astro.fits entitled
  "Create sci.astro.fits?". I received four replies, three in favor
  and one opposed. The person opposed was not really in opposition to
  a FITS newsgroup per se, but rather to proliferation of special
  interest groups. We had an exchange of Email which explored the class
  of related issues, but the heart of the difference of opinion is
  fairly well conveyed by the appended extract, in which my remarks
  are labelled "DW" and the other person's opinions are labelled "OP": 

  OP> I object in principle to groups on Usenet (which is
  OP> essentially a general purpose public broadcasting system) which have a
  OP> total potential worldwide readership numbered in the thousands, most
  OP> of whom don't know about Usenet in the first place, and who are
  OP> concentrated at only a small minority of the sites.
