The easiest way is  probably to set up your newsreader to point at the 
gmane server. On Thunderbird I have the following server settings:

Server name: news.gmane.org
Port 119

The rest are defaults.

Having set up the server the rest depends on your reader, but basically 
you subscribe to the news groups you are interested in. For 
comp.lang.python its called: gmane.comp.python.general
