Just to let everyone know that all the new forums (i.e. everything other
than general, disscuss, announce and CVS) should now be available on the
GMANE news server.

Most of them are available now, and the others should be added over the
next couple of days as people start to post new articles.

For those who dont know what GMANE is; it gateways mailing lists to
newsgroups. This means you can read and post to all the forums in a nice
threaded manner with your favourite news browser (much better than web
forums and mailing lists!!)

Cheers

YES! I have been using Mozilla Thunderbird to read the Slim groups for
six months. It is superb! I believe that many who say they like web
newsgroups do so because they have never used a proper NEWS reader.
