Someone on /r/emacs made reference to https://inbox.vuxu.org/ding, which, I 
was pleasantly surprised to see, archives correspondence on this newsgroup in
the same way lists.gnu.org does for emacs-devel.  Actually, inbox.vuxu.org
does it *much* better than lists.gnu.org as the threading actually makes
navigable sense.  Googling around for the software doing this yeoman's work
led me to a 2018 write-up of "public-inbox":

Thank you Eric Wong and Leah Neukirchen (owner of the vuxu.org domain), I guess?

Not only that -- you can also search it!

I think, at least

  gmane.emacs.gnus.user

is here:

  https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/info-gnus-english/

Dunno why gmane.emacs.gnus.general isn't there, or if it is,
only I can't see it. Somewhere here, I mean

  https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/

The Gnus related groups from news.gmane.io seems to be:

  gmane.emacs.gnus.announce
  gmane.emacs.gnus.buildbot
  gmane.emacs.gnus.commits
  gmane.emacs.gnus.cvs
  gmane.emacs.gnus.general
  gmane.emacs.gnus.patches
  gmane.emacs.gnus.semi
  gmane.emacs.gnus.semi.japanese
  gmane.emacs.gnus.tutorial
  gmane.emacs.gnus.user

TBH I have no idea what the relationship between news.gmane.io and
lists.gnu.org is.

I just meant that if you use public-inbox, you can search from within
Gnus. It's very fast, too.
