It is mirrored in several places such as the main Python web site, the
ActiveState archive and the GMane news server.So although it's not on
Usenet per se it can be read via a newsreader. It's how I receive it :-)
I'm not sure how well the Python/Activestate archives support
attachments but GMane seems to work just fine...
A bigger problem for mobile users is that attachments use bandwidth
which is often paid for by the byte so lots of attachments become
expensive... Although most mobile mail tools should defer fetching
attachments until specifically asked to!
Just back from vacation and catching up...
