REQUEST FOR  DISCUSSION (RFD)
=============================

Newsgroup    : soc.culture.malagasy
Status       : unmoderated
Distribution : world-wide
Summary      : General discussion of malagasy culture
Proposers    : Andriamananjara Tahirisoa Rajaona <[email protected]>
               Andriamanankasina Tantely <[email protected]>

This is a formal Request For Discussion on the creation of the newsgroups
soc.culture.malagasy.

This RFD has been posted in accordance with the Guidelines for Newsgroup
Creation. Its language is based on previously submitted RFDs. The RFD is
being cross-posted to the following relevant news groups :

  news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, soc.culture.african, soc.culture.misc

NOTE : Follow ups are defined to ensure that further discussion takes place in
news.groups only. Please watch this group if you are interested in the ensuing
 discussion.

CHARTER

The soc.culturs.malagasy newsgroup will be open to discussion of all subjects
specifically referring to Madagascar or malagasy culture. This newsgroup will
be created for reasons including, but not restricted to the following points :

* To encourage understanding and discussion of Madagascar culture, in the many
 ways people wish to define it.

* To motivate people for the preservation of the nature (for example the
threatened animals).

* To act a resource for Malagasy people who wish to use the Internet and for
people whowish to encourage the development of the Internet in Madagascar.

* To provide a forum for the understanding, use and support of the Malagasy
language.

RATIONALE

A thousand internet users originally from Madagascar exist around the world
and want to connect each other. There is a sufficient demand for a forum to
discuss specifically Malagasy topics.

The malagasy culture is unique. An exceptional culture where Africa's colours
mingle with Asia's mysteries. This unique fusion of diverse cultures means
that there is currently no newsgroup that can serve as a forum for all
Malagasy people to discuss uniquely this issues.

This is an original RFD, it seems logical that soc.culture.malagasy should
be created.

PROCEDURE

Please post any response to this message to news.groups. If you use the
followup feature on your newsreader, thisshould happen automatically. It is
important to understand that all discussions about the merits of this proposal
should occur on news.groups only.
