Re: Scope of this group
The reponse to my initial, purposely veiled message has been split between
Symbolics employees and a few others who seem to know exactly what I'm
talking about, and others who don't. Without letting anything out, but to
clarify so people don't think I was flaming the traffic in this group:
I was not referring to past or current news traffic in this group. Read the
I'd like to propose that this mailing list be limited to discussions of
Symbolics symbolic language products and supporting hardware and issues
relating to them; other symbolics product (i.e. Unix machines made by that
other vendor) may have their own mailing list?
This means interface between UNIX and a 36xx or 40xx machine is fair game
("issues relating to them"). I said "OTHER SYMBOLICS PRODUCT".
I have found the past and current traffic in this group to be extremely
useful, I simply wanted to get a discussion going with people who know
what's going on, without saying anything I shouldn't. Further if this other
symbolics product does not run lisp or a symbolic programming environment,
then I don't think messages relating to that product belong in this group.
Fair enough? It's a proposal, not an order. It is "symbolics LISP user's
group" isn't it?
