This is the second and final call for votes for
RAPD/bionet.molbio.rapd.  The charter for RAPD/bionet.molbio.rapd is
provided below.  The only change to the proposal since the call for
discussion was to modify the e-mail address from RAPD-L to RAPD since
this will not be a LISTSERV group.

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 RAPD

if you favor creation of the newsgroup or

NO on RAPD

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 RAPD-L list.

				Dave Kristofferson
				BIOSCI/bionet Manager
