de.* is also not carried on _all_ news servers. - I think we should know
what we want to achieve.

If it is a discussion forum in german for GNU software then do that
in de.comp.gnu.

If we want to cross-post this discussion (I think this makes sense) in a 
newsgroup I would choose soemthing like gnu.fsfe.discuss or

It is not important if everyone carries these hierarchies. It is important
that most do. :-)

AFAIK at least all major ISPs and news servers in Austria seem to feed
gnu.* - I don't expect this to be different in other countries.
