Hi Jens,

Though I am in no way officially related to the Debian project, such a
system has already been set up via other ISP's. This post for example
I am posting to a newsgroup. From there it will be gated to the list.

As only persons having an account with my ISP can post using this
newsserver, the spam issue is really a non isue.

Hope this helps :)
