This is a  test of the  announcement mechanism for SAIL  system news.
There  will be  a file  ANNOUN[X,AIL] which  will contain  a complete
history of announcements.  

Here is the first such announcement:

The SAIL hackers at  SU-AI have just (4-Dec 1973)  put up a new  SAIL
system at SU-AI.  Over about the next three or four days, these files
will  be put onto [X,AIL].  This  [X,AIL] version will not be frozen,
although it will be pretty  "slushy" by around 12 Dec.  I.e.  it will
be quite close to the base into which mergers of the other site stuff
is to be made.   We will be fixing bugs  here at SU-AI over the  next
week or two. 

As of  1  January,   1974, [X,AIL]  will be  officially frozen  until
sometime  in February or  March, 1974.   During this  period, various
sites will be merging in their site-dependent code here at SU-AI.  If
you have some things that are to be included, inform us soon, so that
we can plan a time for your changes to be merged in. 

The   file  SAIL.NEW[UP,DOC]  contains   some  documentation  of  new
features.  Also,  the  file LIES[X,AIL] now contains a list  of known
manual bugs.
