Ada in Debian: new dedicated mailing list, debian-ada@lists.debian.org

I would like to access this list through gmane, which I find most
convenient. It is recommended to get the permission of the list owner. Can I
go ahead and request its addition?

Yes, basically the people from gmane subscribes to the list and establishes
a two-way gateway from mail to their nntp server. E-mail addresses are
scrambled to minimize spam.

I guess people using usenet through newsreaders is going constantly down (as
compared to google news, or using news at all).

It suffices to fill-in a request form in the gmane website and they set it
up. They seem to be down right now, so I can't link to it, though.

I would prefer to handle debian-ada
either as a newsgroup by means of tin or thunderbird
(or else as mailing list, but how to join?)

I stopped using a newsreader for comp.lang.ada (emacs with gnus,
namely) only when my stupid ISP stopped providing NNTP support.
Unfortunately, all other ISPs where I live did the same. I would
gladly revert to using emacs if given the chance.


It is already a mailing list; please refer to my initial announcement
for a pointer to the subscription page.

I've been using news.tornevall.net for some time, but I don't remember how I
signed up for it. If you contact them via their contact page
( http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ) they'll probably assist you; they are happy
to communicate in English.

HTH.

Indeed, the sad state of nntp servers is certainly a hurdle. My ISP has a
news server, but it's so unreliable as to be folly to use it; you lose half
the discussion. I'm actually paying for a text-only news service.

But I have just read the post from Simon which looks great. When I started
subscribing I couldn't find any decent free server.

FYI, the new group has been created and can be found in gmane servers as

gmane.linux.debian.packages.ada
