I would like to suggest a slightly different arrangement of newsgroups to
the initial suggestions collected by Michael Sattler.

(moderated) comp.multimedia.conferencing.cu-seeme.announce
(unmoderated) comp.multimedia.conferencing.cu-seeme.general

(unmoderated) comp.multimedia.conferencing.cu-seeme.mac
(unmoderated) comp.multimedia.conferencing.cu-seeme.pc
(unmoderated) comp.multimedia.conferencing.cu-seeme.reflectors

There are two differences, manifesting themselves as one extra group.

The new ".general" group is for just that, general discussion of things
like applications of the technology, special events, and announcements of
new public reflector sites.

The ".reflectors" group would be (like the the ".mac" and ".pc" groups) for
technical discussions relating to the installation and operation of the
respective components.

This gives obvious places for narrow technical discussions, and obvious
places to go for more general, user-oriented, discussions.

What d'ya reckon?

Iain.
