cron/gate_news normally logs nothing, but if there is any exception or other output, it will be mailed to the address specified in a MAILTO= setting in the crontab or if none, to the user it ran under which is normally the 'mailman' list.
Actually, that is not correct. Mailman has a logs/fromusenet log an cron/gate_news logs various errors in that log as well as logging the usenet message numbers of messages posted to the mail list or the fact that there were no new messages. I.e., cron/gate_news logs quite a lot.
