comp.sys.hp48      (moderated: source, informative postings)
comp.sys.hp48.d    (unmoderated: general discussion)

Charter for comp.sys.hp48:

The purpose of this moderated group is to allow uniform source
postings, informative postings, summaries of interesting threads in
comp.sys.hp48.d, and anything in general that is worth archiving.
Each posting will have a standard rkive(1) header to permit automatic
archiving of the articles posted.  Everything of value from
comp.sys.hp48.d will appear in comp.sys.hp48 in some form; one could
read comp.sys.hp48 alone and be assured of missing nothing of
significance.  This will also eliminate saving all the articles of a
particular thread, as it will ultimately appear condensed in

The moderator will be responsible for posting all articles in timely
fashion.  The moderator will attempt to test all source before
posting, and review such postings as time permits.  Source will be
posted in asc format, uuencoded if necessary, and rpl or assembly when
available. While every effort will be made to ensure submissions
represent functional code, there is, of course, no guarantee of
function or suitability for purpose by the moderator.

The moderator will maintain a frequently asked questions list which
will be posted on a regular basis.  The moderator will attempt to
handle simple questions by mail, except when answers are deemed
sufficiently useful to the group to be included in the digest.  This
should reduce the volume of such questions in comp.sys.hp48.d, and
afford people who might feel uncomfortable about posting a "stupid
question" a measure of flame-retardance.

The position of moderator will be held by Chris Spell until such time
as he wishes to name a successor.

Charter for comp.sys.hp48.d:

This unmoderated group is for general discussions.  Anything
permissible within the rules of net etiquette may be posted here
pertaining to the hp48sx or such systems sufficiently similar as to
warrant the interest of hp48sx users.
