I've tried -
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods
                         '(nntp "")
                         '(nntp "")
                         '(nntp ""))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

but its failing saying -
│Wrote /home/boudiccas/.gnus.el
│add-to-list: Invalid function: (nntp "")

So how can I add it then please? The other two links work, so why
doesn'tthe last one? If I use "" as the url it takes me to
a index page with a graphic on it of various sites in a rather spiffing
looking graphic! So I'm puzzled. My idea was that I would be able to get
advance information when a new gnus and emacs are released, but maybe I
could get that information elsewhere?
