The debian mailing lists are available unofficially as linux.debian.* from
several sources. This is a one-way gateway in that mailing list postings
are sent to the groups but newsgroup postings are NOT echoed back to the
list. Stanford.edu has access to them because I supply one of their
newsfeeds (one of my news neighbors is a news neighbor of stanford.edu).
You might try looking on Stanford's news server to see if you can find
them and if not, I will be happy to supply them.
