When you have read an email in a Gmane group you would like to answer,
use F to post a follow up.

This works by Gmane receiving your article via nntp, and - the first
time you post to a group - sending you an email, that you have to reply
to before the article is forwarded to the mailing list, by Gmane, via

For you to receive the email from Gmane (the "challenge") you need to
use a valid email-address in Gnus.

Also, for this to work, either the mailing list has to accept emails
from anyone, or, if it is a subscribers-only mailing list, you may have
to subscribe to it first.

You can read more about it here:

That depends on how the mailing list owner has set up the mailing list.

Oh, and notice that Gmane is distinct from usenet. The same protocol is
used (nntp), but Gmane is not usenet and vice versa :-)
