This periodic posting serves as an introduction to newsgroup
comp.os.research.  A set of companion postings, the Frequently
Answered Questions for comp.os.research, summarises some of the past
discussions in the group.

Comp.os.research is a moderated Usenet newsgroup created to foster the
discussion of and exchange of information on topics in the field of
operating systems research.  The moderator is Darrell Long
<darrell@cse.ucsc.edu> of the University of California at Santa
Cruz.  The maintainer of the FAQ is Bryan O'Sullivan
<bos@serpentine.com>.

As far as moderation policy is concerned, the following two principles
are applied to each article submitted for posting: is it interesting?
is it related to research?

Job announcements will be posted if they are related to operating
systems research; blatantly commercial postings are not acceptable.

Calls for papers for most conferences and journals related to OS
research will be posted.  This is fairly broadly interpreted, since OS
research is a large field.

Smart alec comments are generally filed unceremoniously in /dev/null.

Finally, discussions are cut off when the signal-to-noise ratio falls
below a certain (fairly subjective) level.  Please consider setting
the Followup-To: line whenever discussion drifts away from operating
systems research.

This posting, like much of Usenet, is maintained on a purely volunteer
basis.  It is subject to comment and improvement by sending email to
<os-faq@cse.ucsc.edu>.

Please note that there is a discaimer and copyright notice at the end
of Part 2 of the FAQ.
