Well that's why I posted it on there!!!
That would really be a question for the people who are running the
gmane.os.cygwin newsgroup, wouldn't it?
The folks who run the news--maillist gateway do NOT read each and every
list that they host.
What Chris is saying, is that you need to send a message to Lars Magne
Ingebrigtsen, or to the gmane.discuss newsgroup.
Or you could read the info on the www.gmane.org webpage.
But I've already given away the answer: gmane is a bidirectional
"gateway". Messages posted to the mailing list are archived on the
newsgroup; messages sent to the newsgroup are forwarded to the mailing
list, PROVIDED the poster (that'd be you) follows certain rules
(see http://gmane.org/post.php point #1, and the last item: "People who
do not have valid email addresses in their From or Reply-To headers
can't use Gmane to post to mailing lists.")
this means that you need to post to the newsgroup using a REAL email
return address -- not a spam-protected one like bob@my.NO.mailbox.SPAM.com.
