- mails sent to d-u@l.d.o are gatewayed to l.d.u.
- posts sent to l.d.u are not gatewayed to d-u@l.d.o.

ISTR the usenet -> ml gateway being discussed on-list recently, maybe
it works now.

As somebody else already mentioned, one solution is to read from l.d.u
and post to d-u@l.d.o.  Debian mailing-lists don't require you to
subscribe to post.

Alternatively, if you want read/post nntp access to Debian
mailing-lists (as well plenty of other mailing-lists), head towards
Gmane (http://www.gmane.org).  Among other things (archives, spam
detection), it offers a bidirectional nntp interface to plenty of
mailing-lists, including Debian lists.

This fortune would be seven words long if it were six words shorter.
