No, *please* don't do this with, for example, linux.dev.kernel. It has
enough junk in it as it is; spreading this through all of usenet will make
the group useless. The real kernel hackers will find a new mailinglist
and use that instead (in fact that's already happening at the moment,
as I understand) and it will leave you with another group with lots of
traffic and no actual content.

Some FAQ or document that says which groups exist and which are obsolete
would help; I would like to remove disfunctional groups on our newsserver

Remember linux.* is really a gateway to a mailing list. BTW, do you
have your moderators file set up right? When I post something in linux.*,
it shows up on our news server within a matter of _minutes_. You do have
"linux.*:email@example.com" in your moderators file, right?
