MODERATOR VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT (MVA)
moderated group comp.archives.msdos.announce

This is a formal Moderator Vacancy Announcement (MVA), initiated after the
moderator of the above-listed moderated newsgroups has been found to be
absent. The goal of this process is to find a new moderator for the group.

RATIONALE:

The moderators of comp.archives.msdos.announce, Keith Petersen and Timo
Salmi, have resigned.

NEWSGROUPS LINE:

comp.archives.msdos.announce Announcements about MSDOS archives. (Moderated)

DISTRIBUTION:

news.announce.newgroups
news.groups.proposals
comp.archives.msdos.announce

CHARTER OF COMP.ARCHIVES.MSDOS.ANNOUNCE

This moderated newsgroup is for the upload announcements and
related information from MSDOS FTP sites with PD and shareware
material. The subjects include the upload announcements via the
MSDOS FTP site moderators, the MSDOS sites' periodical summaries,
potential policy statements and downtime warnings, and the MSDOS FTP
site moderators' reports about the connectivity problems with their
archive sites. Unix announcements conform only if they directly
relate to transferring or handling the MSDOS material from the MSDOS
FTP sites.

The purpose of comp.archives.msdos.announce is to be a ONE-WAY
channel for MSDOS upload announcements which the moderators handle,
and other one-way, occasional information relating to MSDOS FTP
sites. The moderators will therefore not be handling users'
discussion material, questions, and replies. The unmoderated
comp.archives.msdos.d newsgroup will cover that aspect.

Other FTP site moderators are welcome to help in the
joint moderation of this newsgroup.

HISTORY OF THE GROUP:

comp.archives.msdos.announce is a moderated newsgroup which passed its vote for
creation by 939:44 as reported in news.announce.newgroups on 8 Dec 1992.

PROPONENT:

Alexander Bartolich <alexander...@gmx.at>

PROCEDURE:

Those who wish to comment on this moderator vacancy announcement should
subscribe to news.groups.proposals and participate in the relevant
threads in that newsgroup.

To this end, the followup header of this RFD has been set to
news.groups.proposals.
