Common Lisp is a dpANS in Public Review!
My apologies to those of you who are getting lots of copies of this
(both from me and Kent Pitman). I wanted to make sure that it reaches
all the people to whom it should be relevant, and there's naturally
quite a bit of overlap.
Common Lisp is now a draft proposed American National Standard (dpANS)
and is in a period of public review that extends until November 23, 1992.
It's -not- an ANSI standard yet, but this is a major milestone in the
standardization process. A press release from X3 containing further
details, including ordering information, follows at the end of this message.
Although review comments are not required to be in any particular form,
we plan to publish a template which people can voluntarily comply with
if they have comments to make. Information about that template will be
distributed soon over this same communication channel.
This message is a broadcast distribution to a very large number of
recipients. PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THE FULL RECIPIENT LIST. If you
have questions, please direct them to a smaller audience.
