              -------------------------------------------

This is a Request For Discussion (RFD) for the creation of a newsgroup
for the discussion of issues regarding the Oberon language and system.

GROUP NAME
	comp.lang.oberon

STATUS
	unmoderated

CHARTER
	comp.lang.oberon (unmoderated) will be a newsgroup for discussion
	of all types of issues regarding the Oberon language and system.

RATIONALE
	Due to historical reasons, topics related to Oberon are currently
	being discussed in comp.lang.modula2. Not everyone may be aware of
	this fact and thus miss the discussion related to Oberon. Further,
	readers of comp.lang.modula2 might not like the "abuse" of their
	newsgroup. The creation of comp.lang.oberon solves both problems.

BACKGROUND
	Oberon is really three things:
	- the name of a project started by Proff. N. Wirth and J. Gutknecht
	  (both at ETH Zurich) with the goal of developing a modern and
	  portable operating system for personal workstations
	- a general-purpose programming language (the successor of Modula-2)
	  with type extension as its principal new feature 
	  (The programming language Oberon-2, designed to make object
	  oriented programming easier, is a true extension of Oberon)
	- an extensible operating system, complete with a novel user
          interface and associated software tools

	The Oberon system (including the Oberon compiler) is available as
	freeware via anonymous ftp from neptune.inf.ethz.ch (129.132.101.33)
	(directory 'Oberon') for the following machines:
	IBM PC (386 or better), Macintosh II (Apple), SPARC (Sun),
	DECstation/3100 and 3500, RS/6000 (IBM)
	(You'll also find some docu (including language reports) there)

SCHEDULE
	This RFD was issued on February  1 and will last for 30 days. If
	this RFD is approved, a CFV will be issued on March 4, and
	the voting period will end at 11:59 (MET), March 25.
