                                 RESULT
              comp.unix.bsd.bsdi.announce will be removed

The Last Call for Comments (LCC) on 17 Sep 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.unix.bsd.bsdi.announce.

This group will be removed on 30 Sep 2007.


RATIONALE: remove comp.unix.bsd.bsdi.announce

The last approval was in June 2000.  BSD/OS was sold by BSDi to Wind
River Systems in April 2001.  Sales were discontinued at the end of
2003, with support discontinue in 2004.

Over the past 12 months, only 20 articles were posted to the
associated discussion group comp.unix.bsd.bsdi.misc, and all but one
were cross-posted to other comp.unix.bsd.* groups.  The one
non-cross-posted article specified that the poster used FreeBSD Unix.

The last moderator agreed that there was no reason to keep the group
around, and that it had been several years since he had received a
non-spam submission.


HISTORY: 

The newsgroup comp.unix.bsd.bsdi.announce was created in February 1995
as part of a comp.unix.bsd.* reorganization that also created
comp.unix.bsd.bsdi.misc.

The last approval was in June 2000.  Over the roughly 5 years of
activity about 100 articles were approved.
