Several months back, there had been a series of discussions about language constructs not related to those in Self, and about the possibility of designing a successor language to Self. At the time, there had been some debate over the topicality of these messages, and the idea had been floated that a new mailing list be formed. At that time, I myself had taken the liberty of setting up a list namd MFTL on what was then eGroups. The debate died down, and shortly afterwards eGroups was bought out by Yahoo. I had thought that the mailing list had been dissolved, but I now have found that it still exists on Yahoo Groups.
I have decided to try and revive the concept of a list specifically for the discussion of novel language concepts and implementations. The group may be subscribed by mailing to MFTLfirstname.lastname@example.org (subject and body are ignored). Hopefully, this will help *this* list avoid topicality problems like the ones mentioned above.
