[English version; See below for the Spanish version]

This is a formal call for discussion (RFD) on the creation of the unmoderated
newsgroup called soc.culture.ecuador. 

NAME:           soc.culture.ecuador
    
CHARTER:        The purpose of the soc.culture.ecuador newsgroup is to 
                provide a place where people all over the world can meet 
                and exchange information and discuss issues about Ecuador.

                Although it is expected that most of the participants will 
                be ecuadorians and friends of Ecuador living at home or 
                abroad, everyone is welcome to participate.

                All topics of discussion relevant to Ecuador are appropriate. 
                Such as:
    
                - Ecuadorian political and social issues.
                - Ecuadorian literature, music, and art in general.
                - Ecuadorian history and geography.
                - Travel information.
                - Customs, traditions, food, etc.
                - Sports.
                - and much more...

LANGUAGES:      Primarily Spanish. English posts are also welcome, to 
                facilitate the exchange of information with non-Spanish 
                speakers.

BACKGROUND:     Several other countries in South America (i.e. Argentina, 
                Brazil, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela) have already created, or 
                are in the process of creating, similar newsgroups.

                There is already a mailing list for people interested
                in Ecuador, EC-CHARLA.

                The intent is to create soc.culture.ecuador as an alternative 
                and, for some, more convenient vehicle to communicate about 
                Ecuador, so as to reach as wide a public as possible.

                The newsgroup will be gatewayed to the mailing list.
                The details of the operation of this newsgroup and it's
                relationship with the mailing list will be considered 
                during the discussion period.


RFD:            The RFD will be sent to the newsgroups news.groups,
                news.announce.newgroups, soc.culture.latin-america,
                soc.culture.argentina, soc.culture.chile, soc.culture.peru,
                soc.culture.uruguay, soc.culture.colombia,
                soc.culture.venezuela, soc.culture.mexican, and to the
                mailing list mentioned above.
                Follow-ups will be directed to news.groups, as per
                USENET guidelines.  
                The discussion period will last for one month, starting 
                from the moment this RFD appears. If there is agreement, 
                a Call for Votes will be issued then.

HOW TO VOTE

Send MAIL to:   [email protected]
Just Replying should work if you are not reading this on a mailing list.

Your mail message should contain one of the following statements:
      I vote YES on soc.culture.ecuador
      I vote NO on soc.culture.ecuador

You may also ABSTAIN in place of YES/NO - this will not affect the outcome.
Anything else may be rejected by the automatic vote counting program.  The
votetaker will respond to your received ballots with a personal acknowledge-
ment by mail - if you do not receive one within several days, try again.
It's your responsibility to make sure your vote is registered correctly.

One vote counted per person, no more than one per account. Addresses and
votes of all voters will be published in the final voting results list.

CHARTER

The purpose of the soc.culture.ecuador newsgroup is to provide a place
where people all over the world can meet and exchange information and
discuss issues about Ecuador.

Although it is expected that most of the participants will be
ecuadorians and friends of Ecuador living at home or abroad, everyone
is welcome to participate.

All topics of discussion relevant to Ecuador are appropriate.  Such
as:
    
   - Ecuadorian political and social issues.
   - Ecuadorian literature, music, and art in general.
   - Ecuadorian history and geography.
   - Travel information.
   - Customs, traditions, food, etc.
   - Sports.
   - and much more...

LANGUAGES:      Primarily Spanish. English posts are also welcome, to 
                facilitate the exchange of information with non-Spanish 
                speakers.

BACKGROUND:     Several other countries in South America (i.e. Argentina, 
                Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela) have already 
                created, or are in the process of creating, similar newsgroups.

                There is already a mailing list for people interested
                in Ecuador, EC-CHARLA.

                The intent is to create soc.culture.ecuador as an alternative 
                and, for some, more convenient vehicle to communicate about 
                Ecuador, so as to reach as wide a public as possible.

                The newsgroup will be gatewayed to the mailing list.
                The details of the operation of this newsgroup and it's
                relationship with the mailing list will be considered 
                during the discussion period.
