As valuable as you think Gmane is and how thousands of people can benefit, I
can only say "what the heck is Gmane". I've never heard of it other than the
last time this discussion came up (and I've heard of most widespread things
on the Internet) so I think you're way overestimating how many people would
benefit. Granted, I'm a sample of one but having now checked out what is it,
it just makes think "what's the big deal?" Certainly not something I see
adding a lot of value. If I'm reading it right, Gmane does mail to Usenet
gateway. How does that add value considering mailman already has mail to
Usenet gatewaying built into it.
