One Line Summary:
   uk.comp.os.linux Discussion of the Linux operating system

   The Linux operating system has a considerable following in
   the UK, and discussion of local issues is not overly welcomed
   in the current newsgroups (comp.os.linux.*).  There are several
   major topics of UK interest (availability of Linux in the UK,
   comparison of UK distributions, internationalisation for the UK,
   UK user groups and so forth) that would benefit from a uk.*

   This newsgroup is proposed for discussion of the Linux operating
   system, with its focus on aspects of its use in the UK.

   Discussion of Linux distribution vendors in the UK, user groups, and
   other UK-related issues is welcome.  Requests for help and
   discussion of technical issues is also welcome, but discussions of
   Linux kernel development should be held in the international groups,
   as this activity is coordinated over a wide area.

   Short (<20 lines) announcements of events and advertising from
   manufacturers and resellers of Linux-related products (e.g.
   distributions) in the UK are permitted.  Advertising aimed at a
   non-UK-specific audience is not permitted.

   Binaries are not permitted, however references to FTPable material
   and WWW URLs are welcome.  Short samples of source code (<30 lines)
   may be used to illustrate a point, but anything longer should be
   referenced by a pointer.
