PROPONENT: Capt Doug Stott - firstname.lastname@example.org CHARTER: This newsgroup is devoted to discussions of Airspace Management and design in Australia. The establishment of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) based airspace design recommendations in Australia is in part a severe culture change for all those who either use (airplane pilots) or manage (Air Traffic Services staff) the airspace under Australia's area of responsibility. The voting finished at midnight between Friday the 15th and Saturday the 16th of December, 1995. yes votes: 102 no votes: 9 Abstentions: 3 Informal: 7 (not overridden by subsequent valid votes) The vote passes, since the required 50 vote difference between 'yes' and 'no' votes exists, and more than 2/3rds of the votes cast are in favour. It has been pointed out to me that I confused two documents while reading them, and that there was never a need for a formal vote in the first place to create a newsgroup in the "aus" hierarchy. Nevertheless it was a simple and unambiguous procedure. I recommend it. Given the clear majority, I have already created the newsgroup. It will take some time (up to two weeks in some cases) to propagate everywhere, and not all administrators will choose to create the group. Put pressure on them to do so. Below, in case people wish to verify that their votes were correctly registered, is the list of voters (Dictionary order by email address, except for invalid votes which appear at the end).
