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

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

PROCEDURE:

The B8MB plans to begin voting on this proposal after five days.  Please
offer any final discussion or comments before the end of this waiting
period.  Voting may take up to one week (7 days); a result will be posted
following the end of the voting period.

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


SUMMARY OF DISCUSSION:

There were no comments made about the removal of comp.sources.apple2.
There was one meta-comment about the overall worthwhile removal of
newsgroups.


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.


DISTRIBUTION:

This RFD has been posted to the following newsgroups:

   news.announce.newgroups
