News gateway for this list?

The old list was gatewayed to gmane, which allowed me to read the list
with a newsreader. Is the same planned for the new list? Or am I
gonna have to figure out how to use Cyrus IMAPD with NNTP?

Google Groups should have NNTP access, after all, they do index USEnet groups, I don’t know if this is open for users though.

Google Groups does not provide NNTP access.

(Worse, because I accepted a GMail invite, I can no longer even post
here using my real e-mail address - Google automatically migrates your
account to GMail. Grr.)

Was I the only one who cared about the NNTP interface?

I ever think Google Groups have NNTP access... if it doesn't Google
Groups would be Google Lists... :s

Could the list admins please fix the gateway to gmane? It was a great
service so I guess it should be possible again? nntp is really a good
thing for mailing lists:
- you don't get lots of mails in your mailbox
- you only download and read what you like
- mails are automatically deleted after a while
- gmane keeps an archive
- gmane has rss and weblog interfaces

Please?

Cute, but wrong. Please check the Google FAQ - there IS NO NNTP access
for Google Groups.

I really hope someone plans to reinstate the gmane gateway.

It seems to be fixed now, messages are showing up on gmane again!
Thanks a lot list admins, it's nice to know that you listen to us!

Half fixed, anyway. Two problems:

1. (Minor) The mailing list prepends [Rails] to each subject line, and
the gateway preserves that. But at least one newsreader, 40tude
Dialog, doesn't know enough to thread "[Rails] blah" with "[Rails] Re:
blah". It'd be nice if the gmane gateway could remove the subject
prefix for us newsreaders.

2. (Major) Posting doesn't work, as I just found when I tried to post
#1...

Thanks to the list admins, but hopefully these two additional problems
can be solved!
