Several months back, there had been a series of discussions about language
constructs not related to those in Self, and about the possibility of
designing a successor language to Self. At the time, there had been some
debate over the topicality of these messages, and the idea had been floated
that a new mailing list be formed. At that time, I myself had taken the
liberty of setting up a list namd MFTL on what was then eGroups. The debate
died down, and shortly afterwards eGroups was bought out by Yahoo. I had
thought that the mailing list had been dissolved, but I now have found that
it still exists on Yahoo Groups.
I have decided to try and revive the concept of a list specifically for the
discussion of novel language concepts and implementations. The group may be
subscribed by mailing to MFTLfirstname.lastname@example.org
(subject and body
are ignored). Hopefully, this will help *this* list avoid topicality
problems like the ones mentioned above.
