The comp.emacs group is for discussions about emacs editors in general,
or emacsen in plural form. There are a lot of them, but many questions
there tend to be about GNU Emacs because it is the most popular one.

The gnu.emacs.help group is a support group for GNU Emacs only. It is
also a mailing list (help-gnu-emacs) and has higher activity than
comp.emacs. I suggest you use this newsgroup unless you want to reach
users of other emacsen.
