This is the second and final call for votes on
INFO-GCG/bionet.software.gcg.  The charter for
INFO-GCG/bionet.software.gcg is provided below.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Proposal to establish INFO-GCG/bionet.software.gcg:

E-mail address: info-gcg at net.bio.net
                info-gcg at daresbury.ac.uk

Discussion leader:  John Cargill
		    Manager of Research Computing
		    Ontario Cancer Institute
		    500 Sherbourne Street
		    Toronto Ontario Canada
		    M4X 1K9

	Tel: (416) 926-4546
        Fax: (416) 926-6529

	Electronic Mail: cargill at ocicl.oci.utoronto.ca

INFO-GCG/bionet.software.gcg charter:

To provide a forum for scientists to share experiences, ideas,
problems, solutions and queries relating to GCG software and/or
research utilizing GCG software. 

--
	
I see INFO-GCG/bionet.software.gcg as a place where users and
administrators of the GCG software system can discuss how to best use
this software tool to accomplish research objectives. The list should
not be used to contact GCG Inc, report software bugs to GCG Inc, or
request assistance from GCG Inc. There is an existing e-mail address
established by GCG Inc for this purpose.

I propose to put this group in the bionet.software.gcg domain of
Usenet because the discussion has too narrow a focus to be included in
the bionet.software domain.
  
INFO-GCG is suggested as the BIOSCI list name for backwards compatibility
with the previous LISTSERV based INFO-GCG mailing list.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Voting on INFO-GCG/bionet.software.gcg runs through 24:00 hrs Pacific
Time on 29 April 1993.  Please send your vote to either of the
following addresses:

Address                               Location        Network
-------                               --------        -------
biovote at daresbury.ac.uk               U.K.            JANET
biovote at net.bio.net                   U.S.A.          Internet/BITNET

PLEASE BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE FORMAT BELOW - WE OFTEN RUN MORE THAN ONE
VOTE AT A TIME SO A SIMPLE "YES" OR "NO" MESSAGE WITHOUT THE NEWSGROUP
NAME MAY BE AMBIGUOUS.  Your vote should contain a single line:

YES on INFO-GCG

if you favor creation of the newsgroup or

NO on INFO-GCG

if you think that the creation of this newsgroup will adversely affect
the BIOSCI system.  If you are simply not interested in participating
in this newsgroup, please don't cast a NO vote, but instead just don't
vote at all.

The newsgroup proposal must receive at least 80 YES votes to pass and
the number of YES votes must be greater than the number of NO votes by
at least 40.  Discussion of the newsgroup proposal is now closed and
we strongly discourage posting any messages in other forums about the
fact that a CALL FOR VOTES has been issued.  Permission has been
granted to post this note to the current INFO-GCG mailing list.

				Sincerely,

				Dave Kristofferson
				BIOSCI/bionet Manager
