REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to remove the following
Usenet newsgroup:

remove comp.sys.intel.ipsc310

RATIONALE: remove comp.sys.intel.ipsc310

This is one of a set of 31 low-traffic former INET groups proposed for
removal. Please see the article

"2nd RFD: Remove low traffic former INET groups"

posted to news.announce.newgroups and news.groups for a more general
discussion.

**********************************************************************************

RATIONALE: remove comp.sys.intel.ipsc310

The newsgroup line is:

|comp.sys.intel.ipsc310 Anything related to the Intel 310.

comp.sys.intel.ipsc310 has not had any on-topic messages in the past 11
months. In the past, most non-spam messages have been related to Intel
processors rather than the Intel multibus-based systems.

The full (draft) group removal procedure is documented here:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/ :rmgroup

Those who wish to comment on this request to remove this newsgroup
should subscribe to news.groups and participate in the relevant threads
in that newsgroup.

To this end, the followup header of this RFD has been set to
news.groups.

All discussion of active proposals should be posted to news.groups.

If desired by the readership of closely affected groups, the discussion
may be crossposted to those groups, but care must be taken to ensure
that all discussion appears in news.groups as well.
