                       REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
                        remove comp.sources.acorn

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to remove the moderated
newsgroup comp.sources.acorn.


RATIONALE: Remove comp.sources.acorn

The last approved message was in August 1999.

There are other more suitable means of distributing program sources,
so comp.sources.acorn is not a suitable candidate for conversion to an
unmoderated newsgroup.


HISTORY:

The newsgroup comp.sources.acorn was created in March 1991, with the first
approved message in March.  The charter (from the CFV) was:

  comp.sources.acorn	moderated distribution of sources for Acorn machines.


PROCEDURE:

The full (draft) group removal procedure is documented here:

  http://www.big-8.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=policies:rmgroup

Those who wish to comment on this request to remove this newsgroup should
subscribe to news.groups and participate in the relevant threads in that
newsgroup.

To this end, the followup header of this RFD has been set to news.groups.

All discussion of active proposals should be posted to news.groups.

If desired by the readership of closely affected groups, the discussion
may be crossposted to those groups, but care must be taken to ensure that
all discussion appears in news.groups as well.


DISTRIBUTION:

This RFD has been posted to the following newsgroups:

   news.announce.newgroups
   news.groups
   comp.sources.acorn
   comp.sys.acorn.misc
   comp.sys.acorn.programmer

PROPONENT:

Jim Riley <jimrtex@pipeline.com>
