REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION
For discussion of the Dylan language. The newsgroup would be
gatewayed with the mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dylan(TM) is a new object-oriented language, described in a book
published by Apple Computer in April 1992. Many people have expressed
interest in the language since then, and prototype implementations are
In September, Apple created four public mailing lists for discussions
of Dylan; the one called info-dylan is used for discussing any and all
aspects of the language. In just over a month, the volume of mail on
info-dylan has reached the point where a newsgroup would be more
useful than a mailing list; indeed, some subscribers have already
removed their names from the list because of the high volume. Apple
will maintain a gateway with the mailing list so that current
subcribers to info-dylan who lack newsgroup access will still be able
to participate in the discussions.
Comments about this proposal should be sent to news.groups.
The discussion period will end November 6, 1992. If there is a consensus at
that time, a Call For Votes will be posted.
