RATIONALE: Remove comp.sources.apple2 The last approved message was in February 1997. There are other more suitable means of distributing program sources, so comp.sources.apple2 is not a suitable candidate for conversion to an unmoderated newsgroup. HISTORY: The newsgroup comp.sources.apple2 was created in September 1990, with the first approved message in September 1990. I could locate no charter for the newsgroup, The newsgroup line was: comp.sources.apple2 Source code and discussion for the Apple2. PROCEDURE: The full (draft) group removal procedure is documented here: http://www.big-8.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=policies:rmgroup Those who wish to comment on this request to remove this newsgroup should subscribe to news.groups and participate in the relevant threads in that newsgroup. To this end, the followup header of this RFD has been set to news.groups. All discussion of active proposals should be posted to news.groups. 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 as well. DISTRIBUTION: This RFD has been posted to the following newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups news.groups comp.sources.apple2 comp.sys.apple2 comp.sys.apple2.programmer PROPONENT: Jim Riley <email@example.com> CHANGE HISTORY: 2006-06-19 Slightly reformatted and posted to YNAN 2006-06-16 Original RFD.
