This is a formal Moderator Vacancy Announcement (MVA), initiated after the
moderator of the above-listed moderated newsgroups has been found to be
absent. The goal of this process is to find a new moderator for the group.


The moderators of comp.archives.msdos.announce, Keith Petersen and Timo
Salmi, have resigned.

NEWSGROUPS LINE: Announcements about Windows archives. (Moderated)




This moderated newsgroup is for the upload announcements and related
information from Microsoft Windows archive sites (also called FTP
sites) with Public Domain, Freeware and Shareware material. The
subjects include the upload announcements via the Microsoft Windows
FTP site moderators, the Microsoft Windows sites' periodical
summaries, potential policy statements and downtime warnings, and the
Microsoft Windows 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 Microsoft Windows
material from the Microsoft Windows FTP sites. 16-bit programs, 32-bit
programs, programs for Windows 95 and Windows NT are all on-topic.

The purpose of is to be a ONE-WAY
channel for Microsoft Windows upload announcements which the
moderators handle, and other one-way, occasional information relating
to Microsoft Windows archive sites. The moderators will therefore not
be handling users' discussion material, questions, and replies. The
unmoderated newsgroup (see below)
will cover that aspect.

Note that while the submission address goes to SimTel, articles from
all major FTP servers are welcome, just as in the existing

The comp.archives.msdos hierarchy handles DOS programs.
