Indeed. I used to be active in the newsgroups in the past, but
unfortunately I have no more time for this very interesting field.

As a first step I suggest that we forward the German versions of our
announcements to that newsgroup. Someone must be present there, so
we can jump in if there are important discussions. (This can be the
same person who posts the announcements there.)

If anyone would take that job, it would be a good possibility to
show that there is an active group furthering Free Software in
