    2ND REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)

    This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) for the following changes
    in the uk.* Usenet hierarchy:

    create unmoderated newsgroup uk.telecom.voip

    Changes from previous RFD:

    Due to objections raised to the fast track proposal, the charter
    has been revised.

    [1] changed to reflect technologies and transport methods involved

    [2] changed to say service providers rather than networks, given
    that they provide gateways and routing services rather than
    networks as such.

    [3] changed to reflect both hardware and software and not limited
    to just option 2 as the vast majority of VOIP equipment is
    enterprise based IPPBX's which at present are not connected by IP
    service providers.

    *Thanks must go to Ian Plain for his assistance with the above
    (particularly the wording as I haven't got a clue about this sort of
    thing..!)*

    Newsgroup line:
    uk.telecom.voip Voice over IP technology and related matters


    *** ALL DISCUSSION MUST TAKE PLACE IN UK.NET.NEWS.CONFIG ***

    This is not a Call for Votes (CFV); you cannot vote at this time.
    Further procedural details are given below.

    RATIONALE: uk.telecom.voip

    With the growth of voice-over-IP telephony and similar systems in the UK,
    much discussion has been taking place in the uk.telecom and
    comp.dcom.voice-over-ip groups.

    The former is intended primarily for generic telecoms discussion and the
    latter is a global group so it is felt that a new group specifically for
    discussion of VoIP in a UK context would be of benefit.

    CHARTER: uk.telecom.voip

    This group is for the discussion of topics relevant to:

    [1] Packet based voice and associated technologies including but not
    exclusively VoIP, FoIP, VoFR, VOB and VON.

    [2] Service providers for the above.

    [3] Hardware and software available for use with packet based voice
    and associated technology .

    Advertising is forbidden.

    Encoded binaries (e.g. pictures, compressed files, etc.) are forbidden.
    Such material belongs on a web or FTP site to which a pointer may be
    posted. Cryptographic signatures (e.g. PGP) may be used where
    authentication is important and should be as short as possible.

    Posts must be readable as plain text. HTML, RTF and similarly formatted
    messages are prohibited. To see how to make some common newsreaders comply
    with this, read <http://www.usenet.org.uk/ukpost.html>.

    Pointers to commercial or other web sites in signatures are permitted
    provided the message is on-topic. All signatures should be 4 lines or
    fewer and preceded by the customary usenet separator "-- " (dash, dash,
    space) on a line of its own.

    END CHARTER

    PROCEDURE:

    This is a request for discussion, not a call for votes. In this phase of
    the process, any potential problems with the proposal should be raised
    and resolved. The discussion period will continue for a minimum of 10
    days, starting from when this RFD is posted to uk.net.news.announce
    (i.e. until April 19th) after which a Call For Votes (CFV) may be
    posted by a neutral vote taker if the discussion warrants it.
    Alternatively, the proposal may proceed by the fast-track method. Please
    do not attempt to vote until this happens.

    This RFD attempts to comply fully with the "Guidelines for Group Creation
    within the UK Hierarchy" as published regularly in uk.net.news.announce.
    Please refer to this document if you have any questions about the process.
