 RESULT: comp.os.tpf moderated passes 210:9

               moderated group comp.os.tpf passes 210:9

There were 210 YES votes and 9 NO votes, for a total of 219 valid votes.
There were 2 abstains and 4 invalid ballots.

For group passage, YES votes must be at least 2/3 of all valid (YES and NO)
votes.   There also must be at least 100 more YES votes than NO votes.

There is a five day discussion period after these results are posted.  If no
serious allegations of voting irregularities are raised, the moderator of
news.announce.newgroups will create the group shortly thereafter.

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

This vote was 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.
