                                 RESULT
                    comp.sources.sun will be removed

The Big-8 Management Board has decided by consensus to remove the newsgroup 
comp.sources.unix.  Voting began on 11 Jul 2006, and ended on 12 Jul 2006.

This group will be removed on 17 Jul 2006.


RATIONALE: remove comp.sources.sun

The last approved message was in March 1992.

There are other more suitable means of distributing program sources,
so 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)


DISTRIBUTION:

This document 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>
