 Informix E-Mail List Monthly Posting

This is to announce an electronic mailing list for the discussion of Informix
software and related subjects.  Topics include all of the Informix offerings,
from C-ISAM to WingZ, plus third-party products.

Membership in the list is open to anyone, including end-users, vendors and
employees of Informix Software, Inc.  The list is unmoderated, so members are
solely responsible for its content.  All contributions are welcome, so long as
they emphasize substantive information.


following information:

    1. Your name (not just your login ID)
    2. Organization or Company name
    3. Postal address
    4. Voice phone number
    5. Operating environment, such as hardware, OS, network
    6. Informix products your regularly use:  4GL, ISQL, RDS, etc.
    7. Whether you want Informix-related Usenet comp.databases articles
       sent to you via e-mail (see below)
    8. The number of User-ID's served if you use an alias (see also below)
    9. Any comments or suggestions you have about the list

About #7:  The list provides a gateway service where Informix-related articles
posted to the Usenet newsgroup comp.databases can be sent to you via e-mail.
This is a one-way transfer, in that messages posted directly to the list will
not be automatically sent back to comp.databases -- at least not for now.  If
you do not want the gateway service, please indicate this in your mail.

About #8:  If there are several users on your system(s) that want to subscribe,
you may want to set up a local mail alias for incoming list messages if you
have that capability.  If you do, pick an alias such as "informix-distr" to
which users are unlikely to post, and do *not* include the main list address in
your alias.  I'd appreciate knowing the number of User-ID's that it serves.

Thanks,

Walt.

  Could you also create a biz.informix news group ?  I really don't
  need to be on an additional mailing list.  

  Thanx!

It is probably time to create a separate newsgroup for Informix database (and
perhaps other) products.  In the four months that the Informix mailing list
has been in existence, its membership has grown to over 400.  The number of
messages posted to the list has also grown steadily.

I will soon be starting a discussion on this very topic within the mailing
list.  If you (or anyone else reading this) would like to subscribe, let me
know.  If that discussion results in any specific proposals involving this
newsgroup, I'll post something here then.

BTW, I think you could make a good case that comp.databases has grown to the
point that we should create sub-newsgroups for some of the more heavily
discussed products or vendors.  Given the various mailing lists dedicated to
individual DBMS products, this is already happening in substance if not in
form.

I don't know if there is a generally accepted break-even point where a
mailing list's size and/or traffic indicate that it should become a newsgroup.
If anyone here does, please send me some e-mail.

Thanks,

Walt.
