there is information on current implementations and the other
resources available for obtaining information on the language.

Other things to think about and discuss:
Should the User group expand to include Modula-3 and Oberon?
Should the Quarterly include letters and articles about
Modula-3 and Oberon?

I'd like to see Oberon and M-3 covered fully.
They're the reason I read this newsgroup in the 1st place.
