Possible topics include requests for information, general programming, development, and bug reports. The group will be unmoderated.   What is Python? ---------------  Python is a relatively new very-high-level language developed in Amsterdam.  Python is a simple, object-oriented procedural language, with features taken from ABC, Icon, Modula-3, and C/C++.  Its central goal is to provide the best of both worlds: the dynamic nature of scripting languages like Perl/TCL/REXX, but also support for general programming found in the more traditional languages like Icon, C, Modula,...  Python may be FTP'd from the following sites:  	ftp.cwi.nl in directory /pub/python (its "home site", also has a FAQ) 	ftp.uu.net in directory /languages/python 	gatekeeper.dec.com in directory /pub/plan/python/cwi   Rationale ---------  Currently there is a mailing list with over 130 subscribers. The activity of this list is high, and to make handling the traffic more reasonable, a newsgroup is being proposed. We also feel that comp.lang.misc would not be a suitable forum for this volume of discussion on a particular language.   Charter -------  Comp.lang.python is an unmoderated newsgroup which will serve as a forum for discussing the Python computer language. The group will serve both those who just program in Python and those who work on developing the language. Topics that may be discussed include:  	- announcements of new versions of the language and 	  applications written in Python.  	- discussion on the internals of the Python language.  	- general information about the language.  	- discussion on programming in Python.   Discussion ----------  Any objections to this RFD will be considered and, if determined to be appropriate, will be incorporated. The discussion period will be for a period of 21 days after which the first CFV will be issued.

HOW TO VOTE  Send MAIL to: [email protected]   Just "Replying" to this post should work if you are not reading this on a mailing list, and if your newsreader honors the "reply-to" line. Double-check the address before sending your ballot.  Your mail message should contain one of the following statements:        I vote YES on comp.lang.python       I vote NO on comp.lang.python  You may also ABSTAIN in place of YES/NO - this will not affect the outcome. Anything else may be rejected by the automatic vote counting program.  The votetaker will respond to your received ballots with a personal acknowledge- ment by mail - if you do not receive one within several days, try again. It's your responsibility to make sure your vote is registered correctly.  Each person may vote only once, no matter how many accounts he or she may have. Also, only one ballot will be accepted from any account, no matter how many people may share it. If more than one vote is received >from any person or any account, only the last vote received will be counted.  Addresses and votes of all voters will be published in the final voting results list. All ballots received are kept in the UVV archives (including "cancelled" and invalid ballots). The vote files are made available to the moderator of news.announce.newgroups on request. They may also, at the discretion of the UVV, be made more widely available if there is a controversy concerning the vote.
