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

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


RATIONALE: Remove comp.sources.sun

The last approved message was in March 1992.

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


HISTORY:

The newsgroup comp.sources.sun was created in April 1989, with the first
approved message in May 1989.  I could locate no charter for the
newsgroup.  The newsgroup line was:

  comp.sources.sun        Software for Sun workstations. (Moderated)


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.sun
   comp.sys.sun.misc


PROPONENT:

Jim Riley <jimrtex@pipeline.com>


CHANGE HISTORY:

2006-06-26      Slightly reformatted and posted to NAN
2006-06-16      Original RFD.
