YES or NO for creating comp.lang.idl-pvwave. Qualified votes ("I vote

Charter: An unmoderated newsgroup for discussing the programming
language known as both Interactive [Data/Display] Language (IDL) and
PV-Wave (Precision Visuals Workstation Analysis and Visualization
Environment). Topics will be programming tips, techniques, and code
exchanges, either full programs or fragments. The proposed group is
intended primarily to discuss numerical analysis, imaging, scientific
visualization, etc. *as performed using the IDL/Wave language*; it is
not intended to support discussions concerning those topics directly,
as groups already exist for those purposes (e.g.
The existing group comp.lang.idl is for the Interface Description
Language, something else entirely.
This Call For Votes does not constitute an endor*t of any product
