QNX NEWSGROUPS ----- THAT'S A MESS -----

Post by Alain Bonnefoy » Thu Jan 15, 2004 1:59 pm

Hi,
Since the beginning of the year there is a big problem about our newsgroups.
When we ask a question, nobody answers and when we look at inn.qnx.com
we can see messages posted this new year in, for example,
qdn.public.qnxrtp.os, qnx.rtos, qdn.public.neutrino.

Could you please make a clean in inn.qnx.com, advise once again
everybody about what are the NEW newsgroups and deleting the obsolete ones!!

Thanks for your understanding,

Sorry for the crossposting, but now I really don't know who is
listenning what!!!!!

Alain.

As I mentioned in one of my posts, without QSS disabling those
old groups, people will just keep posting in them ...
Apparently, that went to the deaf ears :)
Hope they will take your suggestion this time :)

As a member of the QNX Community, we would like to inform you about some

upcoming changes to the QNX Public Newsgroups.



As a result of the launch of the new QNX Website mid-month, the QNX Public

Newsgroups will be streamlined to create a better framework for sharing,

managing and accessing information. Here's a sneak peak at the list of new

newsgroups that will be created at <news://inn.qnx.com/>:





qnx.newuser - Installation, configuration and administration of the QNX

Neutrino or QNX Momentics environments



qnx.rtos - Writing resources managers, and general discussion around

the QNX Neutrino RTOS



qnx.gui - Creating graphical applications within a GUI environment, such

as Photon or PhAB



qnx.development_tools - Self-hosted graphical development with the

Eclipse IDE and cross-hosted development on Solaris, Linux, or Windows



qnx.ddk - Writing device drivers for scanners, video card, optical

mouse, etc



qnx.porting - Discuss migrating applications from QNX4, VxWorks, PSOS,

or Linux to QNX Neutrino



qnx.bsp - Discuss building an image, flashing a board or using a BSP



qnx.qnx4 - General QNX4 Discussion Group



qnx.3rdparty_product_announcements



Existing qdn.public newsgroups will be deprecated before the end of 2003.

However, for your convenience, these newsgroups will still be available

in a read-only archive.



If you have any questions, send email to newsgroup_admin@qnx.com

Nope - you can't post into a read-only group.

Yeah. It is called "proof by repeated assertion".
I wonder about that "launch of the new QNX Website mid-month". What month?
And year?
