From: Jason Evans <email@example.com> Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups,news.groups.proposals Subject: RESULT - comp.infosystems.gemini will be created Followup-To: news.groups.proposals,news.groups Date: Fri, 22 Oct 2021 10:22:26 EDT Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> RESULT unmoderated group comp.infosystems.gemini The Last Call for Comments (LCC) on 2021-08-10 initiated a five-day period for final comments. Following this comment period, the Big-8 Management Board has decided by 3/3 consensus to create unmoderated newsgroup comp.infosystems.gemini. NEWSGROUP 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.
