                                RESULT
                        remove comp.sources.amiga

The Big-8 Management Board has decided by consensus to remove the
newsgroup comp.sources.amiga.  Voting began on 01 Jul 2006, and ended on
02 Jul 2006.

This group will be removed on 07 Jul 2006.


SUMMARY OF DISCUSSION:

There were no objections to the removal of comp.sources.amiga


RATIONALE: Remove comp.sources.amiga

The last approved message was in July 1998.

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


HISTORY:

The newsgroup comp.sources.amiga was created in January 1987 to replace
the moderated newsgroup mod.amiga.sources.  I could locate no charter for
the newsgroup.  The newsgroup line was:

comp.sources.amiga      Source code-only postings for the Amiga.  (Moderated)


DISTRIBUTION:

This RFD has been posted to the following newsgroups:

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


PROPONENT:

Jim Riley <jimrtex@pipeline.com>
