Merging with bionet.virology???

I haven't seen much discussion on bionet.virology yet, but one item
came to mind when I received the proposal for this new group.  We
approved a while before we revised our regulations.
The HIV newsgroup has not really taken off.  Under our regulations
nothing will be done about that until the end of the year at which
time the group might be put on notice of shutdown if it has not
attracted a minimum amount of use.

One other option, if one wants to be proactive, would be to merge it
with bionet.virology (perhaps we specialized with HIV too soon??).
Such a step would have to be agreeable to the discussion leader of the
HIV group and its readership, of course.

What do others think of this idea?
