I am currently gating linux-{kernel,gcc,...} to newsgroups on my local
news server (serves about 4 people). I automatically set the reply-to
address to point to the list. However, we do very little posting to
the list anyway.

I find that the lists are much easier to read in a "newsreader."
In addition, it becomes trivial to keep a specific number of days worth
of the list around at any time.
