REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
remove comp.ai.nlang-know-rep

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to remove the moderated
newsgroup comp.ai.nlang-know-rep.


PROCEDURE:

The B8MB plans to begin voting on this proposal after five days. Please
offer any final discussion or comments before the end of this waiting
period. Voting may take up to one week (7 days); a result will be posted
following the end of the voting period.

All discussion of this proposal should be posted to news.groups.

SUMMARY OF DISCUSSION:

No comments were received.


RATIONALE: remove comp.ai.nlang-know-rep

There have been no approved messages since May 1996. The newsgroup
was a gateway for the NL-KR Digest, and I can find no evidence of the
existence of the mailing list after May 1996. During the last few
months of activity for the group, several digests were posted to the
newsgroup in bunches about a month apart, possibly indicating a
problem maintaining the list.

The ftp web site on which an archive for the list was maintained
(sunnyside.com) is no longer accessible to the public, and attempts to
subscribe to the mailing list failed.

Much of the content of the mailing list was announcements of
conferences, calls for papers, or job openings, similar to articles
posted to comp.ai. Other discussion may occur in the unmoderated
newsgroup comp.ai.nat-lang.


HISTORY:

The newsgroup comp.ai.nlang-know-rep was created in October 1987 as a
gateway for the mailing list NL-KR Digest. In February 1993, it
successfully transitioned to a new moderated, and posting of articles
continued until May 1996.
