[Ken Seehof, pitches an IDE SIG]
Note that this is essentially an attempt to resurrect the Progenv-SIG under
a new name. The latter was killed off in January of '98 after inspiring a
grand total of about 40 msgs (including spam <wink>) over its entire life.
There are many more IDE-type projects in existence today than then, but the
Big Unknown is whether IDE developers will actually participate.

Neither objection would apply to, e.g., an egroups list. A full-blown SIG
likely requires a couple hundred members to justify the hassle on CNRI's
yet-another-reason-the-types-sig-was-born-doomed<wink>-ly y'rs - tim
PS: I'd certainly sign up for the IDE SIG if it's created.
