   *Posting Messages*


   Here's how it works.

      1. The first time you post something to a newsgroup, Gmane spools
the message and sends
         you an email asking you to respond.
      2. You press "reply" in your favorite mail reader, and Gmane
registers this authorization.
      3. Every five minutes, a Gmane cron job goes through the spool of
unsent messages, and
         sends all messages that has received authorization.
      4. No more than one message is sent per user per five minutes. If
you post more than one
         message per five minutes, the messages are spooled and sent out
later. No action is
         required from you.
      5. If you authorize more than one new group per hour, the
authorizations are spooled,
         and handled one per hour. This is to discourage mass
authorizations of groups by
         diligent spammers.

   Persons who are found to spam, after getting through all these
difficulties, will be barred
   from using the Gmane posting mechanism.

   People who do not have valid email addresses in their From or
Reply-To headers can't use
   Gmane to post to mailing lists.

So... according to this, Harold and/or anyone else using gmane should
already be able to post? Has anyone tested it?
