      • RL investigated historical documents and discussions concerning changing the moderation status of a group. He found that past MVIs had actually given the option of changing moderation status from moderated to unmoderated, but that the Board had removed this language at some point. He also found that RFC 5537 from 2009 apparently provides for changing the moderation status of a group. RL to include a summary of these findings in the discussion thread he will be starting in news.groups.proposals news.groups.proposals on Google Groups, news.admin.moderation news.admin.moderation on Google Groups, and news.software.nntp news.software.nntp on Google Groups.
