Why?  The gmane service is almost exactly the same service as we've had since the posting-to-news was turned off.  All that's needed is a gmane mirror of the few groups that they don't carry (it'd be nice if they also called chat chat, or maybe we could call chat general), and we are back to the status quo.  Indeed better than status quo, since no-one has to maintain the damn thing.

Good call, Jeremey.
