The Big-8 Management Board has decided by consensus to remove the

This group will be removed on 07 Jul 2006.


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.
