REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
unmoderated group comp.infosystems.gemini

This is a formal Request for Discussion (RFD) for the creation of the
unmoderated newsgroup comp.infosystems.gemini.

NEWSGROUPS 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.

PROCEDURE:

Please refer to the newsgroup creation policies listed here:
