                CALL FOR VOTES  (CFV)

Proposed Newsgroup : comp.soft-sys.shazam

Type: Unmoderated

Description: Discussion about the SHAZAM econometrics
             computer program.

Charter: The purpose of comp.soft-sys.shazam is to offer 
         general discussion about the statistical and
         econometric features of the SHAZAM program. The
         discussion may include problems with the use of
         SHAZAM and how to solve them. For example, the use
         of SHAZAM for programming estimation and testing
         algorithms could be shared. There are SHAZAM users
         in 63 countries.

Intended audience: Users of the SHAZAM program.

Voting period: March 26, 1993 through April 25, 1993 

How to Vote: To vote in FAVOR of the newsgroup creation of
             comp.soft-sys.shazam send a message to:

             Please use the following format:
              Subject: [Yes/No]
              I vote [Yes/No] for the creation of comp.soft-sys.shazam.
              [Last name], [First name], [E-mail address] 

Comments: The purpose of comp.soft-sys.shazam is similar to the
newsgroup comp.soft-sys.matlab that discusses the use of the
matlab software.
Positive support was expressed during the RFD period.
The name proposed in the RFD period (comp.econometrics.shazam)
has been changed to comp.soft-sys.shazam to be consistent with
other newsgroup names.
