              unmoderated group

This is a formal Request for Discussion (RFD) for the creation of the
unmoderated newsgroup

NEWSGROUPS LINE:		Discussing Android devices / OS.


This newsgroup is meant to form a new group for the discussion and
mutual support of the Android OS devices.

Mainly discussion is planned to be about Android OS - based mobile
phones, but also tablets and everything else Android - based. Newsgroup 
is not planned only as a place for end - users, but for everyone using / 
programming for: Android smartphones / devices / mobile computers.

Currently, discussion of Android is mainly nonexistent on Usenet. But 
popular in Google Groups - many groups could be found about Android, 
both OS and devices. Also quite popular on the web - many forums exist.

Also discussion in shown that there are persons
waiting for Android newsgroup to be created, better as Big-8 group.
(One person claimed that he "doesn't touches alt.*".)

CHARTER: is an unmoderated group for the users of
Android OS: users of mobile phones, tablet PC's, netbooks, etc,
including, but not limited to, software problems, hardware problems,
discussing ideas of what program is suitable for chosen purposes, and
what hardware is suitable for using specific software written for
Android OS and which OS version (firmware modification) is suitable for 
chosen program / task / device.

Posters are expected to abide by normal Usenet standards of decorum,
and to ignore any articles intended to disrupt the newsgroup. Spam is 
PROHIBITED. Advertising is NOT allowed. Newsgroup is text only. (That 
means: no binaries.)


For more information on the newsgroup creation process, please see:


Those who wish to influence the development of this RFD and its
final resolution should subscribe to news.groups.proposals and
participate in the relevant threads in that newsgroup.  This is both
a courtesy to groups in which discussion of creating a new group is
off-topic as well as the best method of making sure that one's
comments or criticisms are heard.

All discussion of active proposals should be posted to

To this end, the followup header of this RFD has been set to

If desired by the readership of closely affected groups, the
discussion may be crossposted to those groups, but care must be
taken to ensure that all discussion appears in news.groups.proposals
as well.

We urge those who would like to read or post in the proposed
newsgroup to make a comment to that effect in this thread; we ask
proponents to keep a list of such positive posts with the relevant
message ID:

Barney Fife, <>)

Such lists of positive feedback for the proposal may constitute good
evidence that the group will be well-used if it is created.
