This day and age, and even more so since you are
already a Gnus user, this day and age it is strongly
recommended to use from instead of Usenet.

Unless you have your own reasons, of course.

Not so long ago, but quite some time I guess, there
was a gateway program somewhere operated by someone
that almost always made certain traffic was synced
between the mailing list (help-gnu-emacs) and the
Usenet Then that stopped working for
some reason and I didn't hear any news from the issue
since that.

But, if it is the Usenet organization and interface
you seek, while still having access to the mailing
lists were the most and the best traffic is, then
Gnus + Gmane is your one-two one-two.

E.g., I have the following listbots/Gmane groups:

6            21782              
6    gmane.comp.shells.zsh.devel           419    48148              
6    gmane.comp.shells.zsh.user            114    20136              
6          757    79723              
6    gmane.discuss                         148    17862              
6    gmane.emacs.bugs                     1395   182826              
6    gmane.emacs.devel                    3937   251936              
3    gmane.emacs.gnus.general                     85510              
3    gmane.emacs.gnus.user                        19301              
3                        1   123523              
6    gmane.emacs.w3m                        24    10410              
6    gmane.linux.debian.user              1532   568029              
6    gmane.test                             15     8555              

And these Usenet groups, thru - which
is maybe what you use as well?

6    alt.test                            17791    57331
6                        18     1285
6    alt.usage.english                   34088    34088
6                        1       31

I also have mail with nnml.

All the same interface, and a good one at that.
That's the killer.
