The Last Call for Comments (LCC) on 07 Feb 2007 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.org.team-os2.

This group will be removed on 20 Feb 2007.


RATIONALE: remove comp.org.team-os2

The newsgroup comp.org.team-os2 has not had any approved messages
since May 1998.  In February 1998, the moderator posted that all
recent submissions were either spam or technical questions about OS/2
rather than advocacy of OS/2, and that she was seeking a replacement
moderator.  In May 1998, along with the final approvals, the moderator
indicated that she had not found a replacement.

It is not clear that Team OS/2 still exists as a formal (or informal)
organization.  The web page at http://www.teamos2.org/ is rudimentary.

The unmoderated newsgroup comp.os.os2.advocacy can be used for
advocacy posting about OS/2.  The rest of the comp.os.os2.* hierarchy
may be used for discussion of technical issues about OS/2.


HISTORY: 

The newsgroups comp.org.team-os2 was created in August 1996 and was
fairly busy for about a year and a half.  The lass approval was in May
1998.
