                      REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
                   remove misc.news.east-europe.rferl

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to remove the 
newsgroup misc.news.east-europe.rferl.


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:

There was some discussion about reconnecting the newsgroup to the
RFE/RL mailing list.  However, there were no comments from the
newsgroups which presumably would have the most interest in the
content of the RFE/RL news digest.


RATIONALE: remove misc.news.east-europe.rferl

The last approved message was in December 1994.

The Newsline is still available via the WWW or by e-mail at
http://www.rferl.org/newsline/ so the newsgroup is an unused redundancy.


HISTORY: 

The newsgroup misc.news.east-europe.rferl was created in November 1992 to
distribute the RFE/RL Daily Report which was also distributed via a listserv at
that time, and also being reposted into a number of other newsgroups.


DISTRIBUTION:

This document has been posted to the following newsgroups:

  news.announce.newgroups
  news.groups
  misc.news.east-europe.rferl
  talk.politics.european-union
  talk.politics.soviet

The proponent will also post pointers to:

  soc.culture.europe
  soc.culture.polish
  soc.culture.czecho-slovak
  soc.culture.magyar
  soc.culture.romanian
  soc.culture.bulgaria
  soc.culture.yugoslavia
  soc.culture.slovenia

  soc.culture.estonia
  soc.culture.baltics
  soc.culture.russian
  soc.culture.belarus
  soc.culture.ukrainian
  soc.culture.rep-of-georgia


CHARTER:

The newsgroup line is:

misc.news.east-europe.rferl	Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Daily Report.

The CFV gave the following description of the mailing list:

========================================================================
Today the report is available as a LISTSERV list which has around
1.500 subscribers. Below is the presentation for the mailing list:

* The RFE/RL Daily Report is a digest of the latest developments
* in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.  It is published
* Monday through Friday (except German holidays) by the RFE/RL
* Research Institute (a division of Radio Free Europe/Radio
* Liberty Inc.) in Munich.  It averages roughly 30 Kbytes of
* material per day.
