                       REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
                        remove comp.sources.apple2

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to remove the moderated
newsgroup comp.sources.apple2.


RATIONALE: Remove comp.sources.apple2

The last approved message was in February 1997.

There are other more suitable means of distributing program sources,
so comp.sources.apple2 is not a suitable candidate for conversion to an
unmoderated newsgroup.


HISTORY:

The newsgroup comp.sources.apple2 was created in September 1990, with the
first approved message in September 1990.  I could locate no charter for
the newsgroup, The newsgroup line was:

comp.sources.apple2     Source code and discussion for the Apple2.


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.apple2
   comp.sys.apple2
   comp.sys.apple2.programmer


PROPONENT:

Jim Riley <jimrtex@pipeline.com>
