CHARTER OF COMP.INFOSYSTEMS.WWW.AUTHORING.CGI

  This newsgroup covers discussion of the development of Common Gateway
  Interface (CGI) scripts as they relate to Web page authoring.
  Possible subjects include discussion how to handle the results of
  forms, how to generate images on the fly, and how to put together
  other interactive Web offerings.

  This newsgroup is self-moderated.  Your first posting will not appear
  until you have read and responded to an automatic welcome mailing, at
  which point your posting will appear with no further delay.  Provision
  will also be made to automatically approve first postings that contain
  a header requesting this.  Subsequent postings are approved
  automatically.

  The self-moderation program will not crosspost to other moderated
  newsgroups.  The user will instead be sent an email reply warning that
  those newsgroups were not posted to.  This is similar to the policy
  followed by most human moderators and no other policy is technically
  feasible without violating the policies of other moderators.

HISTORY OF THE GROUP:

comp.infosystems.www.authoring.cgi is a moderated newsgroup which passed its
vote for creation by 202:24 as reported in news.announce.newgroups on
5 Oct 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.infosystems.www.authoring.cgi are:
- leave the group as it is
- remove the group

For more information on the MVI process, please see
