CHARTER OF COMP.SYS.PSION.ANNOUNCE

The purpose of this newsgroup is double: on one hand, be a general
announcement group for all kinds of Psion hardware / software and on
the other hand, be a general introduction group for Psion newcomers
as the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) will be posted only to this
group.

Moderation Policy:

The group will be moderated because it should be essentially
advertisement free and contain only important information. The
proposed moderator is Michael L. Kaufman.

HISTORY OF THE GROUP:

comp.sys.psion.announce is a moderated newsgroup which passed its vote for
creation by 218:31 as reported in news.announce.newgroups on 14 Jun 1996.

PROPONENT:

Alexander Bartolich <alexander.bartolich@gmx.at>

PROCEDURE:

Those who wish to comment on this request to remove this newsgroup should
subscribe to news.groups.proposals and participate in the relevant threads
in that newsgroup.

To this end, the followup header of this RFD has been set to
news.groups.proposals.

In the course of the removal process four formal announcements are posted
(MVI, 1st RFD, 2nd RFD, and LCC), each taking two weeks. At the end of the
process the B8MB will vote on the issue.

Available options for comp.sys.psion.announce are:
