CHARTER OF COMP.EMULATORS.ANNOUNCE

  This is a moderated group with announcements about emulators, emulator
  ftp sites, new emulator images, and emulator FAQs.  Emulator
  discussion seems to have a fairly high noise level, so this will be
  useful for important news and coordinating FAQs for newbies.

RATIONALE:

Probe posts to this group resulted in bounces.
