The linux.debian.user.german is a version of the debian-user-german
mailing list gatewayed to news, it's not a newsgroup as such.  This
applies to most (if not all) of the linux.* groups.

The Debian mailing list infrastructure doesn't have per-list passwords
(it's pretty much only mailman that does that) and doesn't require that
you be subscribed to post so hopefully it will be easier for you to use
than most mailing lists are.
