I wonder if someone should file for comp.lang.lua, I'd rather not have
to create a third NNTP account. It would also get on Google Groups that
way too, and fits in with the rest of Usenet.

FYI, the Lua Mailing List (lua-l) is now
also available via an NNTP interface (USENET
newsgroups). The news server is "news.gmane.org"
and the newsgroup name is "gmane.comp.lang.lua.general".
This interface might be preferable to those who
neither want a flood of emails in their mailbox nor
go through the painful, ad-filled, interface of
BTW, Gmane also hosts a LOT of the popular mailing
lists as newsgroups. It is indeed a wonderful service!
Interesting. Does it work also when I reply to the newsgroup? I mean, does
my message sent to the newsgroup goes to lua-l too?
Well, I better try out...
It would be better for me, my company firewall forbids POP/SMPT connections
(thus my use of GMX webmail), but recently allowed again NNTP connections...
