From: Jason Evans <email@example.com> Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups Subject: Comp.infosystems.gemini RFD LAST CALL FOR COMMENTS Followup-To: news.groups.proposals Date: Fri, 8 Oct 2021 12:37:59 EDT Organization: Big-8 Management Board Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD) unmoderated group comp.infosystems.gemini This is a formal Request for Discussion (RFD) for the creation of the unmoderated newsgroup comp.infosystems.gemini. NEWSGROUPS LINE: comp.infosystems.gemini Internet Hypertext System, Privacy, Accessibility. CHARTER: This newsgroup covers the Gemini information space served via the Gemini internet protocol, related concepts and tools created by its community. Gemini is an internet protocol to primarily serve human readable content. Served content is not limited to text. Transfer is encrypted for privacy. Most content served by Gemini is written in Gemtext, a primitive markup language that contains a limited set of line types to semantically structure text and link to other resources. Although the protocol is content type agnostic, Gemtext is prevalent in the known information space. As Gemtext can be read without the need of complex clients (such as XHTML browsers) the published information space offers good accessibility. The Gemini protocol and Gemtext content type are not to be extended per definition and community consent. PROCEDURE: Please refer to the newsgroup creation policies listed here: http://www.big-8.org/wiki/How_to_Create_a_New_Big-8_Newsgroup All discussion of active proposals should be posted to news.groups.proposals. To this end, the followup header of this RFD has been set to news.groups.proposals. The final comment period lasts for five (5) days from the time that this RFD is posted.
