                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
                  unmoderated group sci.optics.fiber

RATIONALE: sci.optics.fiber

The only newsgroup that presently discusses fiber optics technology is
sci.optics.  There is no discussion of fiber optics applications and
systems in sci.optics, and only occasionally mentioned in
communications newsgroups.  There about 350 messages per weeks in
sci.optics; about 10% to 15% of thes are relevant to fiber optics.The
comments and questions on general optics are overwhelming the
questions and comments on fiber optics, and a separate category is
certainly called for. People involved in the fiber optics industry,
would prefer not to have to scan several hundred messages that are
non-relevant to their specific interest.

Applications of fiber include transmission systems for CATV and
long-haul telco, fiber amplification in undersea cables, intrinsic
fiber optic sensors for various uses, including medical, etc.,
etc. There are no newsgroups that discuss any of these systems.

Fiber technology includes discussions of the best type of fiber to use
for WDMs used in fiber amplifiers; different types of fiber optic
switches, techniques for cleaning and inspecting fiber optic
connectors, etc. etc.

There are thousands of people involved in fiber optics technology and
systems. Fibers optics is a relatively new, but pervasive, technology,
and the future expansion of the Internet is dependent upon fiber
optics. If a separate newsgroup is created, it will be the focus of
all discussions concerning fiber optics, and enhance the exchange of
ideas and information

CHARTER: sci.optics.fiber

sci.optics.fiber will cover all aspects of fiber optic technology,
sytems, and applications.  The technology will include all types of
optical fibers and fiber bundles; lasers, LEDs,& photodiodes used in
fiber optics; fiber optic connectors, splitters, WDMs, isolators,
attenuators, modulators; and all other components used in fiber
optics.

Systems will include fiber amplifiers, audio & video transmission
equipment telco transmission, fiber optics test equipment, connector
polishing equipment, CATV transmission and distribution, endoscopes,
and fiber optic sensors.

Applications will include medical, telecommunications, CATV, undersea,
aircraft, factory, and fiber optic signs.

END CHARTER.

PROCEDURE:

This RFD will be posted on news.announce.newsgroups, sci.optics, LAN
newsgroups, and any other relevant applications newsgroups.  After the
discussion period of 30 days, there will be a voting period of 21-31
days on whether or not to accept sci.optics.fiber.

HOW TO VOTE:

Extract the ballot from the CFV by deleting everything before and after
the "BEGINNING OF BALLOT" and "END OF BALLOT" lines.  Don't worry about
the spacing of the columns or any quote characters (">") that your
reply inserts.

PLEASE, do not send the entire CFV back to me as this mail is archived.

Mark the ballot and then MAIL it to: <[email protected]>
Just "replying" to this message should work, but check the "To:" line.

In order to properly record your vote, please provide your REAL NAME and
indicate your desired vote in the appropriate locations inside the ballot.

Examples of how to properly indicate your vote:

     [ YES     ]  example.yes.vote
     [ NO      ]  example.no.vote
     [ ABSTAIN ]  example.abstention
     [ CANCEL  ]  example.cancellation

IMPORTANT VOTING PROCEDURE NOTES:

Standard Guidelines for voting apply.  Only one vote per person, no
more than one vote per account.  Votes must be mailed directly from
the voter to the votetaker.  Anonymous, forwarded, or proxy votes
are not valid.  Votes mailed by WWW/HTML/CGI forms are considered
to be anonymous votes.

Vote counting is automated.  Failure to follow these directions may
mean that your vote does not get counted.  If you do not receive an
acknowledgment of your vote within three days, contact the votetaker
about the problem.  It's your responsibility to make sure your vote
is registered correctly.  Duplicate votes are resolved in favor of
the most recent valid vote.  Names, addresses, and votes of all voters
will be published in the final voting results post.

DO NOT redistribute this CFV in any manner whatsoever.  The purpose of
a Usenet vote is to determine the genuine interest of persons who would
read a proposed newsgroup.  Soliciting votes from disinterested parties
defeats this purpose.  Only the votetaker, the news.announce.newgroups
moderator, and the proponent (if specifically authorized by the votetaker)
are permitted to distribute copies of this CFV.

Distribution of pre-marked or otherwise modified copies of this CFV is
generally considered voting fraud and should be reported immediately to
the votetaker or the UVV <[email protected]>.  In cases where voting fraud
is determined to have occurred, it is standard operating procedure to
delete ALL votes submitted by the violator.  When in doubt, ask the
votetaker.

DISTRIBUTION:

The only official sources for copies of this CFV are the locations listed
below and the votetaker's e-mail CFV server which can be reached at
<[email protected]>.

There were 151 valid votes submitted during the voting period.  Each proposed
newsgroup, in order to pass, must have at least 2/3 YES votes and at least
100 more YES than NO votes.  The results are as follows:

sci.optics.fiber results - 151 valid votes

The proposal passed.

There is a five day discussion period after these results are posted.  If no
serious and significant allegations of voting irregularities are raised, the
moderator of news.announce.newgroups will create the newsgroups shortly
thereafter.
