Delphi User Groups FAQ

Archive-name: clpd-Mini-FAQ.txt
Last-modified: April 20, 1996

The reorganization of the comp.lang.pascal.delphi.* hierarchy has now been completed.
To summarize the results:

NEW GROUPS: (created April 18, 1996)
comp.lang.pascal.delphi.advocacy Contentious issues related to Delphi.

comp.lang.pascal.delphi.announce Delphi related announcements. (Moderated)

comp.lang.pascal.delphi.components.misc General component issues.

comp.lang.pascal.delphi.components.usage Using pre-written components.

comp.lang.pascal.delphi.components.writing Writing Delphi components.

comp.sources.delphi Delphi and ObjectPascal source code. (Moderated)

comp.lang.pascal.delphi.databases Database aspects of Borland Delphi.

comp.lang.pascal.delphi.misc General issues with Borland Delphi.

comp.lang.pascal.delphi.components Writing components in Borland Delphi. (Replaced by comp.lang.pascal,delphi.components.writing. It will be rmgrouped on 18 June 1996.)

alt.lang.delphi alt.comp.lang.borland-delphi (Created with poorly formatted control messages, mass rmgrouped and poorly propagated, but if they exist on your site you can try to use them.)

GROUPS NOT TO USE: (Online service in the sense of Compuserve or AOL. Among other things, they provide Internet access to people in the US and UK. They had the name first.)

comp.lang.pascal.borland Borland's Pascal incl. Turbo Pascal (They have made it quite clear that they do not want to hear about Delphi. Please respect their wishes.)

This mini-FAQ is intended to provide people with some idea of where best to post. In my opinion, the hierarchy is in desperate need of a "Welcome" FAQ to spell out what groups are for what and provide some basic netiquette pointers. I don't, however, think that it would be a good idea for me to combine maintaining such a FAQ with moderating the announce group. Any volunteers?

Approval for posting does not constitute an endorsement.
