CHARTER OF COMP.ARCHIVES.MSDOS.ANNOUNCE

       This moderated newsgroup is for the upload announcements and
    related information from MSDOS FTP sites with PD and shareware
    material.  The subjects include the upload announcements via the
    MSDOS FTP site moderators, the MSDOS sites' periodical summaries,
    potential policy statements and downtime warnings, and the MSDOS FTP
    site moderators' reports about the connectivity problems with their
    archive sites.  Unix announcements conform only if they directly
    relate to transferring or handling the MSDOS material from the MSDOS
    FTP sites. 

    The purpose of comp.archives.msdos.announce is to be a ONE-WAY
    channel for MSDOS upload announcements which the moderators handle,
    and other one-way, occasional information relating to MSDOS FTP
    sites.  The moderators will therefore not be handling users'
    discussion material, questions, and replies.  The unmoderated
    comp.archives.msdos.d newsgroup will cover that aspect. 

                Other FTP site moderators are welcome to help in the 
                joint moderation of this newsgroup.
