I might not be too opposed to gatewaying say questions and hackers to
a FreeBSD newsgroup. It would certainly raise the usenet profile
because it would be a pretty busy group. And I wouldn't worry too
much about the S/N ratio dropping on those lists. We've got other lists
for those who want low noise.

That'd be an argument in favour of a purely FreeBSD newsgroup though
because we couldn't just gateway our mailing lists into a group such
as *.386bsd.*
