                      REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
                      remove comp.sys.ti.explorer

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to remove the 
newsgroup comp.sys.ti.explorer.


PROCEDURE:

The B8MB plans to begin voting on this proposal after five days.  Please
offer any final discussion or comments before the end of this waiting
period.  Voting may take up to one week (7 days); a result will be posted
following the end of the voting period.

All discussion of this proposal should be posted to news.groups.

The full (draft) group removal procedure is documented here:

  http://www.big-8.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=policies:rmgroup



SUMMARY OF DISCUSSION:

One person suggested that since "there are at least two emulators nearing
completion"; and "there are also a few tens of real systems that might
appear from what was formerly SwissAir", that traffic might pick up.


RATIONALE: remove comp.sys.ti.explorer

comp.sys.ti.explorer has had one on-topic message in the past 11 months.
Anything specific to the TI Explorer can be posted to comp.sys.ti.

This RFD is part of a proposal to remove 31 low-traffic former-INET
