I've read the proposed charter, and the discussion about it thus
far, and even as a "WWW enthusiast" who is "reasonably" knowledgeable about
the Web at this point, it's still not clear to me what you are proposing
beyond creation of an E-Mail/NEWS group in the biosci hierarchy. I realize
that some of this vagueness may be due to not wanting to pin yourself down
at a time when the Web software and protocols are rapidly expanding.
However, if at the conclusion of a vote the group passed, in addition
to the net.bio.net and daresbury.ac.uk folks setting up email and news feeds
for the groups, particular things that are possible with the existing Web
software and protocols would have to be set up. Would you mind spelling out,
more EXPLICITLY what those additional, PARTICULAR things, at THAT point in
time, would be?
