There is no 'enrolling' except for hitting reply to an email *when you 
first post*, but never to just read. You point your news reader to gmane 
just like to any other newsserver. Once you do, you have access to a 
couple hundred other Python mailing lists and 1000s of others. I believe 
c.l.p is one of the few that also appear on gmane, and only because of 
its gateway to/from python-list.
