Uh, not really.  For XEmacs or SXEmacs, the group comp.emacs.xemacs is
quite more appropriate.  However, gnu.emacs.help is indeed a group
focused on _helping_ people with particular problems.  While
comp.emacs may be appropriate for discussing, say, architectural
issues across the whole Emacs clan range, gnu.emacs.help is more
focused on a particular installation, and for those, it is really
mostly appropriate for Emacs as such.  It is also gated to a mailing
list, and pretty much every other actively employed Emacs variant has
its own user-level/help mailing list.
