    REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
    unmoderated group comp.std.csharp

    This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) for the creation of
    the worldwide unmoderated newsgroup comp.std.csharp. This is not
    a Call for Votes (CFV); you cannot vote at this time. Procedural
    details are below.

    Newsgroup line:
    comp.std.csharp Discussions on the ECMA/ISO Common Language.

    RATIONALE: comp.std.csharp

    There are no newsgroups to discuss the ECMA/ISO Standards for C#.
    There are multiple implementations of this standard; including the
    Microsoft product, Mono, Rotor and DotGNU; and a forum for the
    discussion of the Standard and possible future directions would be of
    benefit to the community. The ECMA Technical Groups for C# and CLI
    are proposing this newsgroup and will monitor the postings.

    CHARTER: comp.std.csharp

    The purpose of this newsgroup shall be to establish and maintain a
    forum for the open discussion of issues related to the ECMA/ISO C#
    Standard. Topics may include but are not limted to matters such as the
    following:
    - Meaning of the Standard
    - Implementation of the Standard
    - Possible errors/omissions in the Standard
    - Possible future directions of the Standard

    ECMA and ISO have formal procedures for input to, and reporting errors in,
    Standards. This group will in no way replace those procedures. The group
    is intended as a forum for the community. However the ECMA Technical
    Group for the Standard will monitor and take note of discussions on the
    newsgroup.

    END CHARTER.

    PROCEDURE:

    This is a request for discussion, not a call for votes. In this phase
    of the process, any potential problems with the proposed newsgroups
    should be raised and resolved. The discussion period will continue
    for a minimum of 21 days (starting from when the first RFD for this
    proposal is posted to news.announce.newgroups), after which a Call For
    Votes (CFV) will be posted by a neutral vote taker. Please do not
    attempt to vote until this happens.

    All discussion of this proposal should be posted to news.groups.

    This RFD attempts to comply fully with the Usenet newsgroup creation
    guidelines outlined in "How to Create a New Usenet Newsgroup" and "How
    to Format and Submit a New Group Proposal". Please refer to these
    documents (available in news.announce.newgroups) if you have any
    questions about the process.
