[Pan-users] Gmane?

As many of you already know, I've been switching to gmane for the PAN groups.  
I'm now ready to drop the mail side, but do I unsubscribe altogether, or will 
my posts to the list then bounce?  Should I simply stick myself in no-deliver 
status instead?

BTW, Charles, I notice pan-announce isn't on gmane.  Could it be added as a 
read-only group, or is there some other specific objection to that I'm not 
aware of?

For those who don't know what I'm talking about, try .  GMane 
is a news gateway to various mailing lists, including pan's own user and 
developer lists.  They don't expire articles, which makes them a good 
archive, but for use in PAN one may wish to set up a rule with action delete 
on a filter set for older than N days.  For those interested, they do also 
have a web based gateway, tho it does expire messages after a period and I 
believe is read-only.  

Until I joined the PAN and a couple other mailing lists (Mandrake Cooker, 
basically), I'd often go weeks without opening my mail client as news has 
always been a higher priority than mail for me.  I'd like to return to that, 
and news seems like a better solution than a mailing list anyway, so the 
gmane solution definitely appeals to me.
