CALL FOR VOTES
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.
NOTE: There was a previous Call For Votes on this newsgroup, but
it wasn't valid, and all those votes have been discarded, so
even if you voted before, you need to vote again.
HOW TO VOTE:
All votes should be mailed to email@example.com.
To vote in favor, use "comp.lang.dylan YES" as the Subject.
To vote against, use "comp.lang.dylan NO" as the Subject.
(These are only suggestions. I'll actually read the messages.)
The voting period will end at 23:59 GMT, December 30, 1992.
