Re: Recombination New group
Proposals for new groups must contain a statement of purpose for the
group and the name of a person designated as discussion leader unless
the group is in the service category such as METHODS, EMPLOYMENT, etc.
Proposals should be sent to biosci-help at net.bio.net.
When a proposal is received it will be posted on
BIONEWS/bionet.announce. A ten day period for discussion on
BIOFORUM/bionet.general will follow and precede the call for votes.
After the discussion, the person proposing the newsgroup may modify or
withdraw the proposal prior to the call for votes. The modified
proposal will then be included in a call for votes on
BIONEWS/bionet.announce. The proposal must collect 80 YES votes in 30
days and the number of YES votes must exceed the number of NO votes by
at least 40 to pass.
BIOSCI management must be informed in advance of any intended efforts
to advertise the newsgroup proposal in other forums.
