Date: Wed, 8 Jul 1992 17:51:54 GMT Approved: [email protected] Lines: 54  This is a Request For Discussion (RFD) concerning the creation of a new newsgroup, comp.graphics.opengl.  This newsgroup will be unmoderated.   With the licensing of OpenGL to the computer industry and the formal release of the OpenGL 1.0 specification and sample implementation, it is appropriate to establish a newsgroup devoted to the discussion and analysis of this 3D application programming interface.    There is currently a good deal of discussion regarding the Graphics Library, typically spread out among very general groups (comp.graphics), vendor specific groups (comp.sys.sgi) and groups dedicated to discussing other 3D technologies (comp.windows.x.pex).  A single forum for the discussion of the technical and business issues related to this emerging 3D industry standard is needed.      Proposed Charter  comp.graphics.opengl will be a newsgroup for technical and business issues surrounding the OpenGL API will be discussed.  The following is non exhaustive list of the possible topics:  1) OpenGL API - Technical questions related to the OpenGL API and the 1.0 specification.  Discussion and analysis of the OpenGL Utility Library and Conformance Test.  Comparison of OpenGL with earlier versions of the GL.  Comments and suggestions for new features and modifications to OpenGL.  2) Vendor Product Plans - 20 PC and workstation companies have licensed OpenGL.  Discussion of the product strategies and plans of the licensees.  3)  OpenGL Programming -  Discussions concerning programming tips and techniques for software developers using the OpenGL for the first time, or experienced developers porting to OpenGL from prior versions of the GL.    4)  OpenGL Window System Integration Issues - Technical explanations of the integration of OpenGL into different window systems such as X Window and Windows NT.    5)   Technical and Market Comparison versus Alternative Graphics API's - OpenGL versus PHIGS, PEXlib, GKS, Dore, Renderman, HOOPS.........  This newsgroup is designed to be multivendor in nature.  All replies should be directed to new.groups.  After the appropriate period of comment, I will proceed to a Call For Votes (CFV).    I look forward to your comments and suggestions. --  Bill Glazier     [email protected] Silicon Graphics, Inc.

Currently a great deal of net discussion takes place about OpenGL, unfortunately spread out among either newsgroups which are too general, vendor specific newsgroups, or newsgroups dedicated to competing API's or graphics protocols.  A dedicated newsgroup will allow for:  1) Technical discussion of the OpenGL API, OpenGL Utility Library, and GL/X Wire protocol:  Comparison versus prior releases of the GL.  Input concerning desired enhancements or new features.   Programming issues and techniques.  Analysis of implementations in different environments (Windows NT, Macintosh OS, Unix..).  Porting to OpenGL.    2) Marketing and Business Issues Analysis: Product plans of OpenGL licensees.  Comparison versus other 2D and 3D graphics API's. Performance benchmarks and competitive analysis.    VOTING INSTRUCTIONS:   The voting period for this CFV is as follows:      Start:  Tuesday,  September 1, 1992,  0000 GMT     End:    Tuesday,  September 22, 1992, 0700 PST  In order to be counted, a vote must be **received** during the voting period.  To vote, send electronic mail to:  If you wish to vote YES for comp.graphics.opengl    - Send a message containing the words "Yes: comp.graphics.opengl" to [email protected]  If you wish to vote NO for comp.graphics.opengl    - Send a message containing the words "No: comp.graphics.opengl" to [email protected]   DO NOT POST YOUR VOTE!  POSTED VOTES WILL NOT BE COUNTED!! Do not send your vote directly back to me! It will not be counted! All further discussion regarding this should be posted to news.groups.   RESULTS:  Shortly after the completion of the voting period, the vote tally and the E-mail addresses and names of the voters will be posted on comp.graphics, comp.sys.sgi, comp.windows.x.pex, news.announce.newgroups, and news.groups.  The tally will include a detailed listing of how each person voted so that the results can be verified.  After  the voting results appear there will be a 5 day waiting period during which readers will have a chance to correct any errors in the voting lists or the voting procedure. --  Bill Glazier                            415-390-1617 [email protected] Graphics Technology Licensing Silicon Graphics, Inc.
