LAST CALL FOR VOTES (of 2)
unmoderated group comp.lang.python
comp.lang.python The Python computer language.
Votes must be received by 23:59:59 GMT, 17 March 1994.
This vote is being conducted by a neutral third party. For voting
questions only contact email@example.com. For questions about the
proposed group contact firstname.lastname@example.org (Steven Miale).
The vote-taker will post each CFV to the Python mailing list at
email@example.com shortly after it is posted to
news.announce.newsgroups. He will send an abridged RESULT posting
(without the full list of voters) to the mailing list after voting
ends; the full RESULTs will be posted to all the newsgroups where the
CFV was posted.
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.
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,
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.
