I am not sure if there is any interest at all in fixing the Y2K bugs
in V5.03 of RT-11 and making it Y2K compliant. Since V5.03
has been widely available for a number of years and is able to
be legally run under the Supnik emulator for hobby users, I am
curious to find out if spending the time to port code (that I did in
1997) from V5.04G of RT-11 to V5.03 of RT-11 is worth while
insofar as the Y2K bug fix is concerned. In addition, and at the
same time, it would be very effective to add extra code to make
RT-11 Y10K compliant and handle years up to at least 9999 CE.

Even if you are only going to use the final product, the number of
individuals interested in playing a role is important to ascertain.
Please express if you would like to at least receive the changes
to V5.03 that would make the code Y2K/Y10K compliant.

At the present time, I assume there is absolutely no commercial
interest in a Y2K V5.03 of RT-11. Consequently, the target of
this post is, by default, only the hobby community. The final result
will also be licensed for just the hobby community, so it is hoped
that ought to prevent any complications as to who will use the
changes and whether there will be any attempt to restrict the use
of such changes by the hobby community.

If there is any commercial interest, please e-mail me off
list to find out what might be available. If the interest is
what I think it is, I will NOT be receiving any responses
at all for commercial use!

Sincerely yours,

Jerome Fine
