I assume its been tried on another system, using a different NNTP
server?

I'd certainly prefer not to see the two split as I sometimes end up
using both (mailing list from work, nntp from home).

Hi --

Given that the gateway between ruby-talk and comp.lang.ruby is still
not working consistently, I'm wondering whether it's time to turn off
the gateway entirely and separate the two groups.  It seems to me that
partial mirroring is worse than no mirroring.

Dennis (the maintainer) has tried to analyze and fix the problem, but
it appears to be downstream from his system somewhere.  I guess it's
possible to investigate further, but at this point it may be pretty
hard, and meanwhile the unofficial split between the list and the
newsgroup continues to grow.  I think it might be better to make it
official.

I don't know exactly how such a decision would be made, but I figured
the first step would be to see what people think of such a move (not
the idea of mirroring per se, but the idea of turning off mirroring in
light of the fact that it doesn't work).  So.... ?
