Back in December Barry had mentioned that he was exploring adding nntp
(and IMAP) support to the archives, but didn't clarify much further...
and I googled quite a bit, and these 2 or 3 posts on the subject is all

My question is - would this (hopefully? please!?) also include posting
support from a newsreader, so that nntp users could also interact with
the list discussion(s) using their preferred newsreader? Or was this for
reading only?
