To be quite honest, it's due to seeing the same format for other
newsgroups charters. I will remove the redundancy.

I will see if I can get wording to this as well as the suggestions of
others in the charter.

This is most definately related to the populace of Ansteorra, as well as
the members of the list. I know quite a few people who enjoy dancing in
the Society. As well, I'll make sure it allows for the announcement of
lists/ftpsite/webpages that are of interest to the populace.

This is exactly the example I wanted. I will expand/clarify it.

I think the discussion of *any* guild that the members of the populace
of Ansteorra are interested in are fine. I will see if I can yet again
make things more clear.

I think this is probably the best suggestion. I know that I wouldn't
like to keep this up in the Charter. The SCA web page could have all of
them listed if need be. I have plans for the Charter to be the "info"
file for the list and all new members getting a copy of it. This means
that it only has to be valid then really.

I certainly will. That was my mistake since this was taken from a
charter that had a FAQ that went with it.
