                     FIRST CALL FOR VOTES (of 2)
                     moderated group comp.os.tpf

Newsgroups line:
comp.os.tpf             Issues of the TPF and MVS/TPF Operating Systems. (Moderated)

Votes must be received by 23:59:59 UTC, 18 Nov 1998.

This vote is being conducted by a neutral third party.  Questions
about the proposed group should be directed to the proponent.

RATIONALE: comp.os.tpf

Currently there exists no newsgroup dedicated to the discussion of the art
of programming and technical aspects of IBM's Transaction Processing
Facility Family of Operating Systems, TPF and MVS/TPF.
This OS is about 30 years old and is IBM's Real-time Transaction Processing
OS for Airlines and Banks. A possible alternative for dissemination of
information is the usage of the asm370 forums but this newsgroup gets
clogged with non-TPF related issues and due to the nature of TPF, it is not
only associated with BAL 370 code anymore. This OS is used by the largest
banks and airlines and it would be of tremendous value to have a forum
dedicated to its users, programmers and architects. Current sites of TPF or
MVS/TPF are American Airlines, VISA, Master Card, Chicago Board of Options
Exchange, NYPD, Walgreens, TAP, ElAl, Holliday Inn, amongst others.

CHARTER: comp.os.tpf

A forum for discussing all problems and topics related to the
Transaction Processing Facility Operating Systems by IBM. Topics such
as programming in Assembler/370 for TPF, as well as C-TPF programming, C++,
Java, architecture, and interoperability are welcome. Provision for topics
and postings for Job Offers follow the guidelines widely accepted by the
Usenet. Topics unrelated to TPF or MVS/TPF,such as large binaries,unrelated
pictures and offensive material are unacceptable under all circumstances.


MODERATOR INFO: comp.os.tpf



Follow these instructions *exactly*!  Votes are counted by computer.
You should send E-MAIL (posts to a newsgroup are invalid) to:

Please do not assume that just replying to this message will work.
Check the address before you mail your vote.  Your mail message
should contain one and only one of the following vote statements:

    I vote YES on comp.os.tpf
    I vote NO on comp.os.tpf

    Voter name:

If your mail software does not indicate your real name (for example, AOL
does not), include _exactly_ the statement above on a _separate_ line
and add your name after the colon.  Having your name in your signature line
is NOT enough!  Do NOT join the lines together or remove the words
"Voter name"!

You may also vote ABSTAIN (which records an empty vote) or CANCEL (which
removes any earlier votes).  ABSTAIN does not affect the final vote count
in any way but is listed, whereas CANCEL is not.

If these instructions are unclear, please consult the Introduction to
Usenet Voting or the Usenet Voting FAQ at
http://www.*-*-*.com/ ~neilc/uvv/.


Standard Guidelines for voting apply.  One vote per person, one account
per voter.  Votes must be mailed directly from the voter to the votetaker.
Anonymous, forwarded or proxy votes are not valid.  Votes mailed by
WWW/HTML/CGI forms are considered to be anonymous votes.

Vote counting is automated.  Failure to follow these directions may
mean that your vote does not get counted.  If you do not receive an
acknowledgment of your vote within three days contact the votetaker
about the problem.  It's your responsibility to make sure your vote
is registered correctly.  Duplicate votes are resolved in favor of
the most recent valid vote.  Addresses and votes of all voters will
be published in the final voting results post.

The purpose of a Usenet vote is to determine the genuine interest of
persons who would read a proposed newsgroup.  Soliciting votes from
disinterested parties defeats this purpose.  Please do not distribute
this CFV.  If you must, direct people to the official CFV as posted
to news.announce.newgroups.  Distributing pre-marked or otherwise
edited copies of this CFV is generally considered to be vote fraud.
When in doubt, ask the votetaker.

This CFV was created with uvpq 1.0 (Jun 10 1997).
