                                 RESULT
                   comp.sources.unix 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.unix

The last approved message was in December 1998.

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


HISTORY: 

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

comp.sources.unix       Postings of public-domain sources. (Moderated)


DISTRIBUTION:

This document has been posted to the following newsgroups:

  news.announce.newgroups
  news.groups
  comp.sources.unix
  comp.unix.misc
  comp.unix.programmer


PROPONENT: 

Jim Riley <jimrtex@pipeline.com>
