                      REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
             unmoderated group

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

NEWSGROUPS LINE:	Computer based technology for light in theater


As computer lead to be more and more present in theater, I intend to
propose a newsgroup to discuss of aim and solutions it offers to theater's
technicians and artists.

CHARTER: will be a discussion forum for people who want
to discuss about software dedicated to light in theater


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 news.groups.proposals.
To this end, the 'Followup-To' header of this RFD has been set to this group.

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
(e.g., 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.


This document has been posted to the following newsgroups:


The proponent will also post pointers to: (moderated)
