Follow these instructions *exactly*! Votes are counted by
computer. You should send E-MAIL (posts to a newsgroup are
invalid) to:


The subject line MUST end with

CFV: comp.databases.oracle Periodic FAQ Post

Note that a prefix, such as RE: is permitted.

Please do not assume that just replying to this message will
work. Check the address before you mail your vote. Your mail
message should contain the following:

- One line for each response;
- Each line should contain the line number, a period, an open
bracket, the information, a closed bracket;
- Information before the line number and after the closed bracket
will be discarded, as will white space around the brackets;
- The permitted responses for 1-4 are indicated after the closing
bracket and you may copy that into the response area;
- In addition, you may enter a response of ABSTAIN or CANCEL
for questions 1-4;
- Your real name is required in response 5 and must be enclosed by
the brackets..

If your mail software does not indicate your real name (for example,
AOL does not), include _exactly_ the statement above on a _separate_
line and add your name after the colon. Having your name in your
signature line is NOT enough! Do NOT join the lines together or
remove the words "Voter name"!

You may also vote ABSTAIN (which records an empty vote) or CANCEL
(which removes any earlier votes). ABSTAIN does not affect the final
vote count in any way but is listed, whereas CANCEL is not. The
CANCEL and ABSTAIN reflect your vote for that question only.


Standard Guidelines for voting apply. One vote per person, one
account per voter. Votes must be mailed directly from the voter to
the votetaker. Anonymous, forwarded or proxy votes are not valid.
Votes mailed by WWW/HTML/CGI forms are considered to be anonymous
votes. Votes from non-existent email addresses are not valid.

Vote counting is automated. Failure to follow these directions may
mean that your vote does not get counted. If you do not receive an
acknowledgment of your vote within five days contact the votetaker
about the problem. It's your responsibility to make sure your vote is
registered correctly. Duplicate votes are resolved in favor of the
most recent valid vote. Names and votes of all voters will be
published in the final voting results post. **Addresses will NOT be

The purpose of a Usenet vote is to determine the genuine interest of
persons who would read a proposed newsgroup. Soliciting votes from
disinterested parties defeats this purpose. Please do not distribute
this CFV. If you must, direct people to the official CFV as posted to
news.announce.newgroups. Distributing pre-marked or otherwise edited
copies of this CFV is generally considered to be vote fraud. When in
doubt, ask the votetaker.


Questions should be addressed to the same email address by should
have a subject of
