Making this group a part of the official comp.* hierarchy.

P: n/a

As most of you know, comp.databases.postgresql.general is a wonderful
resource. What you may not know is that it has not gone through a
process that would enable it to be listed on hundreds of usenet
servers worldwide by default.

Normally groups that are under the comp.* hierarchy go through a
something called RFD and CFV. comp.databases.postgresql.general has
not gone through this process, therefore many servers refuse to carry
_any_ comp.databases.postresql.* groups.

This is very easy to correct. And you can participate in making it
happen. An RFD (Request for Discussion) has been created, and is
posted to news.groups. Here you will find information on the proposed
group. If you read the RFD and find any thing incorrect or ways to
improve it, just post to news.groups. Once it has been modified to be
perfect, and after a waiting period of 21 days, there will be a call
for votes (CFV).

Here is where you decide whether comp.databases.postgresql.general
should be available to _every_ usenet server in the world as part of
the offical comp.* hierarchy. There will be a vote and if it passes,
every usenet server will carry the group.

Currently many refuse to carry groups that have failed to go through
the process of RFD and CFV. This means many popular servers are not
making postgresql groups available. This includes the very popular usenet server. In order to make this available, and
spread the use of postgresql and knowledge of this wonderful
relational database management system, it is a very good idea to
support this.

Supporting it will insure that no matter what usenet server you are
on, you will have access to the postgresql groups.

If you have any questions, just respond to this thread. Make sure you
cross post to news.groups as well. They are experts in the newsgroup
creation process and they will answer any quetions on that end.
