    FAST TRACK ANNOUNCEMENT uk.telecom.voip
    =======================

    In the procedures established for maintaining the uk.* hierarchy
    <http://www.usenet.org.uk/guidelines.html> there are provisions, where
    there is a consensus and the proposal is straightforward and
    non-controversial, to proceed by the "fast-track" method, so as to avoid
    the necessity for holding a full vote.

    I have now received a request to fast-track the following proposal:

    create unmoderated newsgroup uk.telecom.voip

    This proposal will be activated no earlier than five days from the posting
    of this notice (i.e. not before April 11th), unless there are
    objections (of which six or more, or any one which seems to the Committee
    to be well founded, shall suffice to halt the process).

    Objections should be emailed directly to Control at
    <>.

    Objections will be resolved by the committee ()

    ============================================================================

    Changes from previous RFD:

    Added "or relevant to" to the phrase "in the UK".

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

    Proponent's summary of discussion:

    The majority (12 or so at a rough count) of the comments appear to be
    in favour of the new group, with the remainder (3 or 4) arguing along
    the lines of "I don't see a need" rather than "I'd vote against".

    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] Voice-over-IP telephony/technology and related matters in or relevant
    to the UK.
    [2] Networks for the above.
    [3] Equipment available for the above.

    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.
