Request for Discussion (RFD) on Soc.Culture.Somali
 
This message initiates a discussion period to consider 
the creation of a soc.culture.somali newsgroup. Discussion will 
take place in news. groups, and all follow-up posts should be 
posted to that group.  Anyone at all interested in this proposal 
is encouraged to participate in the discussion. Initial suggestions
for the group name, status and charter are given below, though
subject to review and revision based on the discussion to follow.
KEEP IN MIND that this are only initial suggestions and it is subject
to change as soon as a further inputs and opinions are collected.
 
GROUP NAME
 
soc.culture.somali
 
STATUS
 
not moderated.
 
 
PURPOSE
 
   The proposed soc.culture.somali newsgroup will provide a forum 
for the discussion of all aspects of the Somali society-culture, 
economic, political, and anything that has to do with the name 
Somali.
 
RATIONALE
 
   Given the current situation in Somalia, it's pivotal that a form for 
discussion is created. It is a common desire amongst the Somalis and 
those who have interest in Somalia to see the establishment of such a 
newsgroup. This has been expressed by many on the 
soc.culture.Africa in several occasions. Furthermore, there is also a 
consent  to spare others in that newsgroup the sometimes heated 
arguments which we feel is neither relevant nor appropriate in that 
newsgroup. Thus, a news group solely devoted to the Somalian issues 
is greatly needed.
 
CHARTER
 
The proposed soc.culture.somali newsgroup will be to provide a 
forum for the discussion of things Somali. Discussion will include (but 
not be limited to) sharing of information about the future of Somali- 
What is the solution to the current war, the prospect of establishing
law and order, economic rehabilitation of the country, regionalism, 
ethnicity, religion, and etc.
 
SUMMARY
 
In summary, a newnews group called soc.culture.somali is being
proposed. It's focus will be on discussion of all items relating
to Somali culture-economic, political, and traditional.
 
 
DISCUSSION
 
Discussion regarding the creation of the newsgroup soc.culture.somali
should be posted to news.groups.
