<URL: >, and <URL: news:comp.lang.perl.announce >
as well.

Discussions concerning porting of Tcl and/or Tk into new OSes occasionally
are found in newsgroups such as <URL: news:comp.os.linux.development.apps >,
<URL: >, <URL: >,
<URL: >, and <URL: news:comp.unix.bsd.freebsd.misc >.

Discussions relating to specific applications can be found in newsgroups

but specifics concerning actual conventions are unlikely to change. Primarily
there is room for changes on the presentation itself, as well as additional
conventions which should be present but are not. Notes pointing to a conflict
between a stated convention and Tcl or Tk base code are of interest. Send
comments to Dr. Ousterhout <URL: >.
