	Take a look at comp.protocols.time.ntp.  That is precisely the 
same content as you get on questions at ntp.isc.org, because there is a 
bi-directional gateway that we run between the two.

	So, there is absolutely no reason at all to use Gmane for this 
mailing list.  If there were not already an associated newsgroup for 
which a bi-directional gateway was set up, then Gmane might offer 
something useful to that community.

	If pointing your newsreader at news.gmane.org doesn't work for 
you to get access to comp.protocols.time.ntp, then you need to talk 
to their Newsmaster about carrying this standard newsgroup.
