The 1st RFD for the creation of a newsgroup for the discussion of
SOAP was posted today. Please join the discussion
in news:news.groups if you are interested in or opposed to such a group.

This is a request for discussion, not a call for votes. In this phase
of the process, any potential problems with the proposed newsgroups
should be raised and resolved. The discussion period will continue
for a minimum of 21 days (starting from when the first RFD for this
proposal was posted to news.announce.newgroups), after which a Call For
Votes (CFV) will be posted by a neutral vote taker. Please do not
attempt to vote until this happens.
