The Last Call for Comments (LCC) on 8 Aug 2006 initiated a five-day
period for final comments.  Following the comment period, the Big-8
Management board has decided by consensus to remove the newsgroup
comp.lang.scheme.c.

This group will be removed on 21 Aug 2006.


RATIONALE: remove comp.lang.scheme.c

comp.lang.scheme.c has had 4 possibly on-topic messages in the past 11
months, though it is possible that they are actually about Scheme in
general or simply the C programming language.

This RFD is part of a proposal to remove 31 low-traffic former-INET
groups.  Please see article <1152814343.19576@isc.org>, available here:

    http://news.killfile.org/?group=news.announce.newgroups&number=1363

Note: the proposal to remove two of the 31 groups, comp.os.rsts and
comp.std.announce, has been withdrawn.


HISTORY: 

comp.lang.scheme.c has existed as an INET group since at least 1988.  It was
promoted to the standard Big 8 distribution in October 2000.


DISTRIBUTION:

This document has been posted to the following newsgroups:
