                   REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
                 unmoderated group comp.os.linux.trustix

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) for the creation of a
world-wide unmoderated Usenet newsgroup comp.os.linux.trustix.
This is not a Call for Votes (CFV); you cannot vote at this time.
Procedural details are below.

Newsgroup line:
comp.os.linux.trustix A Linux distribution: Trustix

RATIONALE: comp.os.linux.trustix

The rationale for this group follows that the need for a
newsgroup where a user of the Linux distribution: Trustix
can go and ask any question or answer any question pertaining to Trustix.
Trustix is a Linux distribution devoted soley to Servers. Since this
Linux distribution is devoted to Servers I believe it will become very
popular amongst administrators because most Linux distributions contain
files that Servers do not need. Currently, anybody who uses Trustix
does not have any newsgroup to go to. So with that I hope to launch
a newsgroup dedicated to this distribution.

CHARTER: comp.os.linux.trustix

comp.os.linux.trustix is intended to be for the discussion of
topics related to the Trustix distribution.  Topics may include discussion
about Trustix, Linux in general, or even the validity of Linux in the world
of MS Windows.



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) may be posted by a neutral vote taker if the discussion
warrants it.  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.


This RFD has been posted to the following groups:
