The Unidata Users Committee endorses the following changes in Unidata's platform support:
A. Immediately sunset support for ULTRIX and SunOS 4.x.
B. Add support for Red Hat Linux and Solaris for Intel (x86).
C. Sunset support for OS/2 on July 31, 1999.
In agreement with the recommendation by the NSF review panel, the Users Committee recommends that the Unidata Policy Committee explore Unidata collaboration with other agencies and organizations (e.g., NCAR SCD) to facilitate access to archived meteorological data in forms compatible with Unidata-supported software.
The Users Committee requests the Policy Committee give the Users Committee full authority for making the Russell DeSouza Award. Current Users Committee members will be excluded from consideration. The Users Committee will seek nominations from the community, discuss the nominations in an open meeting, and render its decision in executive session.
