This is a formal Request for Discussion for the creation of a Usenet
newsgroup for the discussion of issues regarding the QNX realtime
operating system (both the 16- and 32-bit version, emphasizing version
4.x).

Proposal:
---------
Name: comp.os.qnx

QNX is a micro-kernel-based, real-time, POSIX-compliant OS that runs on PC
hardware and features the ability to produced network-based and multiprocessor
distributed real-time applications that exhibits nearly the full device-level
performance of the CPU and periperals. It has a very-much UNIX-like look and
feel, and it conforms to POSIX standard 1003.1, 1003.2, and 1003.4.
The QNX architectures emphasizes distributed processing, fault tolerance,
and high-throughput, very-low-overhead networking ,

QNX was created in 1982 as one of the first microkernel-based real-time
operating systems to run on a PC platformm, In 1989, QNX was rewritten from
the ground up to be fully POSIX compliant, and was released in 1991 as
QNX Version 4.0. 

QNX Version 4.2 is a full 32-bit real-time OS with support for both 16-
and 32-bit applications, Pentium-optimized development tools, OpenLook
window managment, and TCP/IP and NFS support. 

QNX is largely found in embedded systems , medical instrumentation,
OLTP, and process-control environments where a UNIX-like environment
is needed but real-time performance and is paramount. QNX is also
finding its way into telecom markets.  QNX Software Systems (Kanata,
ON) currently boasts an installed base of over 250,000 nodes.

The intended purpose of this group is to generate discussion of QNX development
issues, including hardware and peripheral support, third-party applications
for QNX, POSIX compliance vis-a-vis QNX, and portability. To a lesser degree,
a general discussion of real-time and fault-tolerance issues in the context of
QNX would also be appropiate. 


Moderation Status:
------------------

Procedure:
----------

Discussion is to be held *only* in news.groups.

In 30 days, I will either:

CHARTER

  This group is designed to foster discussion of issues regarding the
  QNX realtime operating system, with an emphasis on version 4.x, but
  also allowing discussion of version 2.x.

  The intended purpose of this group is to generate discussion of QNX
  development issues, including hardware and peripheral support,
  third-party applications for QNX, ANSI and POSIX compliance, and
  portability. To a lesser degree, a general discussion of real-time and
  fault-tolerance issues in the context of QNX would also be appropiate.

  rewritten from the ground up to be fully POSIX compliant, and was
  released in 1991 as QNX Version 4.0.

  With the release of QNX Version 4.2, QNX moves into the arena of Open
  Systems.  Version 4.2 is a full 32-bit real-time OS with support for
  both 16- and 32-bit applications, Pentium-optimized development tools,
  DOS compatibility and DOS integration facilities, OpenLook window
  managment, and TCP/IP and NFS support. X-Windows for QNX will be
  available soon, and should generate much discussion.

  QNX is largely found in embedded systems, medical instrumentation,
  industrial automation, OLTP, telecommunications, and process-control
  environments where a UNIX-like environment is needed but real-time
  performance is paramount. QNX Software Systems (Kanata, ON) currently
  boasts an installed base of over 300,000 nodes.

STANDARD VOTING INFO

You should send MAIL (posts to a group are invalid) to

      [email protected] 

(just replying by MAIL to this posting should work, *if* your
newsreader honors the "Reply-To" line in the article header; to be
sure, double-check the mail's destination before sending). Votes sent
to other addresses will not be counted.  Your mail message should
contain one and only one of the following statements:

      I vote YES on comp.os.qnx
      I vote NO on comp.os.qnx
      I vote ABSTAIN on comp.os.qnx

You may add a comment, but anything other than a definite statement
involving the group name and "yes", "no", "for", or "against" on a
single line may be rejected by the automatic vote counting program.
If you later change your mind you may send in another vote, which will
automatically supersede all previous votes. "ABSTAIN" votes serve to
cancel previous votes.

Standard Guidelines for voting apply.  For the group to be created,
100 more YES votes than NO votes must be cast, and 2/3 of all valid
votes must be YES votes. "ABSTAIN" votes are not counted in either
calculation; their only role is to cancel previous votes.

Every vote will be acknowledged by EMail. The CFV will be repeated
once; the 2d CFV will contain a "bounce-ack", i.e. a list of people
whose ACK messages bounced when I sent them.

At the end of the voting period, the results of the vote will be
posted to the groups where the CFV was posted. This posting will
include a complete list of all voters, specifying how each one voted.

All ballots sent must be considered public. The votes will be kept in
the UVV archives; if a serious impropriety in the vote is alleged,
those vote files may be made public, at the discretion of the UVV.
They will also be provided to the moderator of news.announce.newsgroups 
on request.

BOUNCE-ACK (as of Nov. 8, 1993)

The following people have submitted valid votes, but my E-Mailed
acknowledgement bounced between my mailer and theirs. These people
need not respond; their votes have been counted.

If you received an EMailed acknowledgement, you will most likely *not*
be listed here; this lists only the people whose acknowledgements
generated warnings.

If you have voted on or before 11/7/93, you have not received an
acknowledgement, and you are not listed here, it is possible that your
vote never reached me; please check with me at
<[email protected]>, or resend your vote to <[email protected]>.
