CHARTER OF COMP.LANG.PASCAL.DELPHI.ANNOUNCE

A moderated newsgroup for the posting of announcements and information
relating to Borland Delphi.  This includes one-shot announcements such
as:

     New/revised components, libraries and tools for Delphi
     Publication of books and magazines on using Delphi
     Web and FTP sites devoted to Delphi
     Users-group formation and meetings

In addition periodic postings such as Delphi FAQs, FAQ pointers and
HOWTOs are encouraged.

Among the types of article not appropriate for posting are employment
related announcements or articles containing binaries or significant
amounts of source code.  In all cases, follow ups are to be directed
elsewhere in the comp.lang.pascal.delphi.* hierarchy.

The purpose of moderation is to keep the group within its fairly
narrow charter.  Follow ups and other general posts are to be rejected
with a pointer to a more suitable group.  It is also the moderator's
duty to verify the URLs of Web and FTP sites to confirm that they are
reachable and contain Delphi related material.

HISTORY OF THE GROUP:

vote for creation by 219:21 as reported in news.announce.newgroups on
