I think this needs to be a porkjockeys style newsgroup (ie a limited accept list, and no news->mail gateway) or something similar in order to keep spam down. This will need to wait until I get further down the road of the Despot overhaul (which I began recently). More as it happens.
This bug has not been touched for more than nine months. In most cases, that means it has "slipped through the net". Please could the owner take a moment to add a comment to the bug with current status, and/or close it. Thank you :-) Gerv
Mass reassign of mozilla.org infrastructure bugs, as I'm switching groups to work on LDAP integration in Mozilla full-time.
dmose: do you still want this? Does it need incorporating into http://www.mozilla.org.uk/newsgroups.txt ? Gerv
Gerv, with the restructuring of the newsgroups, is this still valid? If not, please close it. (Updating URL)
This should be fixed with the giganews transition (bug 62228)
QA for this component is now Justin
Resolving; we now have a new hierarchy which, we hope, takes into account all the current needs. If it doesn't, file a fresh bug. Gerv
