I have no problem with this, any any other parallel language code newsgroups. You need to assign it to the server ops team to be implemented.

Component: Newsgroups → Server Operations :: Newsgroups is the proper place for this. justdave will get around to it when he can.

yeah, just assign it to server-ops@mozilla-org.bugs but leave it in the newsgroups component.  We'll find it. :)  I'll leave it assigned to me as long as it's here though.

Ok, thanks Dave.
Just FYI, these usually get batched, when we have a few of them accumulated, and normally near the beginning of a month.  Since some of the setup on the server end needs to be done manually because of the way we're set up, we try to avoid burying our gracious partners (Giganews/Google) in constant service requests. :)

However, it is the beginning of the month now, and we haven't done any yet for October, so this will probably be done within a few days.

The newsgroup gets gatewayed to a mailing list when we set it up.  I need someone to act as a moderator for the mailing list side of it.  Your job would mostly be clearing legitimate posts trapped in the moderator queue and deleting spam that was held for the moderator.  Most of the time posts from subscribers will automatically get through without intervention.  Given that the list/newsgroup is intended for portuguese speakers, it would probably be helpful if the moderator spoke portuguese. :)  Do I have a volunteer?  As soon as I have a person to put on it, I can get moving on the setup.

This volunteer I am, let's go to start! :)
How's progress on this?  I don't see the group at yet.  
Many apologies for the long delay.

The mailing list has been created at

Leandro should have already received an email containing the list admin password.

The list is currently configured not to show up on the main page.  I will fix that as soon as the gated newsgroup shows up on Giganews.

newgroup request has been submitted to both Giganews and Google.
Whiteboard: waiting for Giganews and Google
Group exists on both Giganews and Google.
I've opened the mailing list to the public.

Have fun!
