From: Jim Riley <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: RESULT: comp.sources.amiga will be removed Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, comp.sources.amiga, comp.sys.amiga.misc, comp.sys.amiga.programmer Followup-To: news.groups Date: Wed, 05 Jul 2006 10:05:18 -0700 RESULT remove comp.sources.amiga The Big-8 Management Board has decided by consensus to remove the newsgroup comp.sources.amiga. Voting began on 01 Jul 2006, and ended on 02 Jul 2006. This group will be removed on 07 Jul 2006. SUMMARY OF DISCUSSION: There were no objections to the removal of comp.sources.amiga RATIONALE: Remove comp.sources.amiga The last approved message was in July 1998. There are other more suitable means of distributing program sources, so comp.sources.amiga is not a suitable candidate for conversion to an unmoderated newsgroup. HISTORY: The newsgroup comp.sources.amiga was created in January 1987 to replace the moderated newsgroup mod.amiga.sources. I could locate no charter for the newsgroup. The newsgroup line was: comp.sources.amiga Source code-only postings for the Amiga. (Moderated) DISTRIBUTION: This RFD has been posted to the following newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups news.groups comp.sources.amiga comp.sys.amiga.misc comp.sys.amiga.programmer PROPONENT: Jim Riley <email@example.com> CHANGE HISTORY: 2006-07-05 Result prepared. 2006-06-26 2nd RFD (Last Call for Comments) 2006-06-19 Slightly reformatted and posted to NAN 2006-06-16 Original RFD.
