Moore <[email protected]>   This is a formal Request For Discussion on the creation of an unmoderated newsgroup, comp.std.pascal.  This RFD has been posted in accordance with the Guidelines for Newsgroup Creation.  Its language is based on previously submitted RFDs.  The RFD is being cross-posted to the following relevant news groups:          news.announce.newgroups         news.groups         comp.lang.pascal         comp.std.misc  CHARTER  The comp.std.pascal newsgroup will be open to discussion of the Pascal language standards, the Pascal language as defined by those standards, compilers conforming to the standards, and other Pascal standards related topics. The existing stanards for the Pascal language are as follows:          ISO/IEC 7185 "Programming Languages - Pascal"         ANSI/IEEE 770X3.97-1983 "American National Standard Pascal Computer         Programming Language"         ISO/IEC 10206:1991 "Programming Languages - Extended Pascal"         ANSI/IEEE 770X3.160  The newsgroup will be founded on these standards, but will be open to further standards forthcoming.  RATIONALE  The Pascal is an unusual (perhaps unique) language in that the officially defined standards are not the basis of the most widely used variant of the language Pascal. The only existing Pascal oriented newsgroup, comp.lang.pascal, has, by observation, come to be dominated by traffic based on the leading defacto standard, the Borland Pascal variant. Since this defacto standard is not compatible with the standard language, this leads to the need to "hunt" for traffic on the standards and the standard language among the much greater volume of Borland Pascal based traffic. I propose that both the users of the standard Pascal language and the users of Borland would be better served if the languages were separated into two groups. I further assert that because comp.lang.pascal is overwhemingly Borland Pascal based, that having the standard Pascal based users move elsewhere and leaving the majority of the comp.lang.pascal users alone would only be fair.  PRECEDENT  Several groups exist to discuss the standard versions of languages, including comp.lisp, comp.c, comp.c++.  MAILING LISTS  No known lists exist.  FUTURE CALL FOR VOTES  After a discussion period of 21-30 days, if there are no overwhelming objections to the proposed group, there will be a Call For Votes (CFV) posted to the same groups as this RFD.  The voting period will be at least 21 days.  If the group passes by receiving 100 more YES votes than NO votes, and (at least) twice as many YES votes as NO votes, it will be created.  Scott A.

This group split will give the most popular versions of the language their own newsgroups, and also create a common area for discussion of all Pascals.  The group plans follow:  -------------------------------------------------------------------------  Newsgroup       : comp.lang.pascal.misc Status          : unmoderated Distribution    : Worldwide Summary         : For discussion of issues pertaining to all Pascal                   versions Proponent       : Scott A.

Moore ([email protected])  Charter:  This group will serve for discussions about the various implementations of Borland Pascal, programming and programs written in that language, and other issues. Topics that will typically be discussed here are:          Status of the Borland Pascal language.          Efforts to produce a manufacturer independent standard for         Borland Pascal.

Moore ([email protected])  Charter:  This group will serve for discussions of all Pascal implementations based on the ISO and ANSI Pascal standards, programs and programming in those languages, the standards themselves, and other issues. As discussed in the previous RFD round, it is not the intent to discuss only standard features/functions, but ANY application of or extention to Pascals that use the standards for a basis. I forsee these including:          Further (upcoming) standards for Pascal, including the         object Pascal standard.          Operating system specific applications of standard Pascal.          Machine specific applications of standard Pascal.          Portable GUI interfaces for standard Pascal.  And others.

Proponent       : Scott A. Moore ([email protected])  Charter:  This group will serve to discuss the new Pascal variant called Delphi, including programming, programs, operation and other issues. Envisioned are the topics:          Operation of the Delphi toolset          Coding in Delphi          Relationship of Delphi to Pascal  And others. There has been some discussion on whether Delphi properly belongs under the pascal tree. However, Borland itself claims that the delphi language is Pascal based. Since it is considered to be incompatible with previous editions of Borland Pascal, I also do not consider it a candidate for inclusion under the comp.lang.pascal.borland tree.  Mailing lists:  A mailing list has been announced for delphi. It's status is unknown at this time.  --------------------------------------------------------------------------  This is a formal Request For Discussion on the creation of the above described newsgroups, and the phase out of the group comp.lang.pascal.

The first RFD used the names comp.soft-sys.app-builder.delphi.*; this proposal changes the base of the newsgroup names to comp.lang.pascal.delphi.  This RFD has been posted in accordance with the Guidelines for Newsgroup Creation.  This RFD will be cross-posted to the following relevant newsgroups:      news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, comp.lang.pascal,     comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.controls,     comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.tools, comp.databases.paradox,     comp.databases.xbase.misc  Discussion of this proposal should take place in news.groups.  RATIONALE  1.  Placement of hierarchy  During the comp.lang.pascal reorganization and the Delphi discussion there has been extensive discussion of the appropriate place for Delphi in the Usenet hierarchy.  There were 4 main proposals for the placement:    Comp.lang.delphi  This group was initially the most popular.  However, the programming language underlying Delphi is called Object Pascal rather than Delphi, and it is not different enough from Pascal to warrant creation of a separate comp.lang newsgroup.    Comp.lang.pascal.delphi  This group was initially second most popular, and later became the most popular choice.  If Delphi is placed in the comp.lang hierarchy, it seems the most natural place.  However,    - it downplays the database aspects of Delphi   - it moves Delphi away from the related packages PowerBuilder and   Uniface.    Comp.soft-sys.delphi  Much of Delphi is not really a "language" at all; the VCL library with its database support and the visual design environment are valuable parts of the package, suggesting that comp.soft-sys is an appropriate place. This proposal received very little support.    Comp.soft-sys.app-builder.delphi  The comp.soft-sys hierarchy contains a number of unrelated software packages, and there has been a recent effort to organize these into subgroups by topic (e.g. c.s.math.mathematica, c.s.multimedia.cu-seeme.*, and the c.s.app-builder.uniface proposal).  Within comp.soft-sys, Delphi is most closely related to Uniface, another application development product, and would belong as a sibling of it in the app-builder subgroup.  This name was proposed in the 1st RFD, and received some support, though not nearly as much as c.l.p.d.  On the negative side, it was pointed out that:    - it may cause confusion with the Novell Visual AppBuilder product (which performs a function similar to Delphi)   - it downplays the Pascal language aspect of Delphi, and may lead to numerous incorrect posts to the c.l.p groups   - it violates the precedent of placement in the comp.lang hierarchy set by Visual Basic, the closest existing package to Delphi   In my judgment, the two names c.l.p.d and c.s.a.d are clearly better than the other choices.  Neither is perfect, but I would judge their flaws to be roughly equal.  However, c.l.p.d has been much more popular than c.s.a.d in the Delphi discussion, and so I have changed the proposal.  2.  Choice of subgroups  There is no change to the subgroups from the original proposal:  The current volume of postings in comp.lang.pascal suggests that about 3 newsgroups would have a reasonable amount of traffic.  The choice of "databases", "components" and "misc" represents my judgment of a clear delineation of topics.  The databases and misc subgroups will likely have similar high traffic rates.  The components group will probably be more technical and lower volume.  In the future, new subgroups separating local database issues from client-server issues, and separating language from VCL from IDE usage issues might be appropriate, if traffic warrants.  A moderated group for new product announcements may also prove to be desirable.  CHARTERS (AND CONTEXT)  Delphi is Borland's recently released rapid application development system for MS Windows.  It consists of a compiler for a version of Object Pascal descended from Borland's Pascal compilers, a user-interface and database access library called VCL, and a development environment allowing for components to be dropped from a palette into an application.  Components may also be written in Delphi and installed into the environment.  Since the release of Delphi, most Usenet discussion of it has taken place in comp.lang.pascal, raising the volume of postings there from 70/day to 200/day.   ************************************************************************ * Group 1: comp.lang.pascal.delphi.databases  This group would be for discussions related to using the database aspects of Delphi.  Discussions of Database Desktop and Reportsmith would belong here, as would discussions of the database aspects of VCL, client-server issues, and most other things relating to databases.  ************************************************************************ * Group 2: comp.lang.pascal.delphi.components  This group would be for discussion specific to writing components in Delphi.  Discussions of details of VCL pertinent to creating new components, how to write VBXs, and other issues of component design would be on topic here.  Discussions about creating database components would probably be more appropriate here than in the c.s.a.d.databases group.  Discussions about how to use components would belong in c.s.a.d.misc.  ************************************************************************ * Group 3: comp.lang.pascal.delphi.misc  This would be the catch-all discussion group not dealing with the specific technical issues covered in the other groups.  The name "misc" was chosen to be in line with current newsgroup name conventions.  Discussions of how to use the IDE and help system, how to install components including VBXs, how to use VCL and Object Pascal (except database specific issues), how to port code from other languages to Delphi, how to create DLLs, bugs and workarounds in VCL, announcements of new products, general help in getting started, where to find ftp and www sites regarding Delphi, etc. would all be on topic here.    WHAT'S NEXT      Seven days after this RFD is posted, if there are not overwhelming     objections to any of the proposed groups, there will be a Call For     Votes (CFV) posted to the groups as this RFD has been. The voting     period will be 22 days. Each group that passes, by receiving 100     more YES votes than NO votes *and* twice as many YES votes as NO     votes, will be created.
