third attempt ...

last year on the German TeX news group there was a request to be able to
discuss LaTeX3 topics via news (the LaTeX3 discussion list is a mailing
list which needs subscribing).

as it turned out, there is an mail-to-news interface "GMANE" that already
hosted LATEX-L although until a few days ago this was a uni-directional
interface, ie one could read but not submit

this has changed now: the interface supports submissions as long as you are
subscribed to the particular list (you have to manually ackn that to GMANE
once, basically to prevent spam)

so if you prefer reading LATEX-L via news you can now do so at


So be able to post message you need so subscribe to LATEX-L,i.e. by sending
mail to [log in to unmask], with an empty subject, and


 but this description can be made in a way that you get no mails from this
list by afterwards sending a message to [log in to unmask],
with an empty subject, and


in the body.


as i know that several people prefer the spam-free state of their email
addresses (who doesn't :-) I requested, the moment i heard about that
interface being already used, that the news feed is encrypting addresses,
which will keep spammers at bay (if they haven't got your address otherwise)

you can still mail to such an address but you will need to identify yourself
