I've setup a mail-to-news gateway for the various PHP3.* mailing lists.  At
first it was for my own use, but as a few friends mentioned how useful it
was for them, I posted an announcement about it on the PHP3 groups and
people there like it.

I am now announcing a similar service for the MySQL lists.  This is a one
way only mail-to-news gateway.  The newsgroups are _LOCAL_ on my news
server only and do not propagate anywhere on the net.  It is a good way to
keep up with the lists without having your mail box overflowed.  You also
get various features such as threaded messages, etc. that comes with modern
newsreaders.  You can NOT post to these groups, however, you can reply to
the author of each individual message, and of course you can also send to
the mysql lists.  With the PHP3 lists, only members can post to it.  I
assumed (I hope!) that the same applies to MySQL lists.  That helps keep
spams down.
