Is there any way to correct a newgroup message?

So it can be listed on ...

ftp://ftp.isc.org/pub/usenet/CONFIG/active

... and get carried by servers that require the listing.

Is there a peer-to-peer way to check which servers carry a group without
checking each server one-by-one?

news.groups is about Big 8 hierarchy newsgroups, not alt.* newsgroups.

Generally, the sample active and newsgroups files maintained at
ftp.isc.org are updated with newgroup messages that have Newsgroups file
lines in good syntax.

If the News server will create a newgroup only if it's listed in the
sample active and newsgroups files at ftp.isc.org, then the group must
be listed.

A long time ago, a regular in alt.config had maintained a Newsgroup
Propogation Tool that ran a regular cron job that checked whether
various News servers had created a specific newsgroup, but not every
News server allowed its active file to be downloaded. Anyway, he stopped
maintaining the tool a long time ago.
