They are two different servers.  That won't work.  Besides, you don't want
to put something on a newsgroup and to a mailing list thru gmane's
list2news interface both, anyway.  That's just asking for spam to the
mailing list, so it'd not be a good idea even if you /could/ do it.

Instead, post two SEPARATE posts, one to the normal newsgroup (thru
giganews), one to the list, which you get as a newsgroup, thru gmane.
