Introduction
------------
The Usenet software allows the support and transport of hierarchies of
newsgroups not part of the "traditional" Usenet through use of the
distribution mechanism. These hierarchies of groups are available to
sites wishing to support them and able to find a feed. In general,
these groups are not carried by the entire network because of their
volume, restricted spheres of interest, or a different set of
administrative rules and concerns.

In general, it is a bad idea to forward these newsgroups to your
neighbors without asking them first; they should only be received at a
site by choice. Not only is this generally-accepted net etiquette, it
helps to preserve the freedom to do and say as the posters please in
these newsgroups, as the only people who get them are those who asked
to get them. This freedom is more restricted in the Usenet as a
whole, because every mainstream posting and every mainstream newsgroup
name must be acceptable to a much wider audience than is present in
these hierarchies. Because of the sheer size of the mainstream
Usenet, extra-long or controversial postings are more likely to cause
problems when posted to the Usenet; however, these alternative
hierarchies exist precisely to support those kinds of postings (if
germane to the hierarchy).

Usually, there is is no restriction on getting these groups as long as
you have the capacity to receive, store, and forward the groups;
software after B 2.11 news is required to make the distribution
mechanism work properly for these groups. How to join each
distribution is described below.

Note that the "uunet" service carries all of these hierarchies.
Contact uunet-...@uunet.uu.net for subscription details.

Also note -- the lists in this article are totally unofficial and
possibly incomplete or inaccurate. I try to keep the lists up-to-date,
but make no guarantee that any of the information contained corresponds
with the named groups in any significant way. Corrections and comments
should be mailed to the reply address in the header of this article.

eye
---

EYE magazine, based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, is a free newspaper
issued once a week. The scope of articles is greater than just
Toronto, so the hierarchy is available on a worldwide basis. For more
information, contact e...@interlog.com (Ken Campbell). NNTP feeds can
be arranged through him if you cannot get the groups from your regular
feeds.

gnu
---

gnUSENET (gnUSENET is Not USENET) is a set of newsgroups that are
gated bi-directionally with the Internet mailing lists of the GNU
Project of the Free Software Foundation. GNU (GNU's Not Unix) will be
a complete operating system, including application programs, with
freely redistributable source code. Please use ONLY gnu.misc.discuss
for discussion of topics considered contrary to GNU aims and political
philosophy (e.g., porting of GNU code to Apple machines, usefulness of
intellectual property laws, etc.).

The GNU mailing lists and newsgroups, like the GNU project itself,
exist to promote the freedom to share software. So please don't use
these newsgroups (or the other GNU lists) to promote or recommend
non-free software. (Using them to post ordering information is the
ultimate faux pas.) If there is no free program to do a certain task,
then somebody should write one!

If one of your USENET feeds cannot provide you with a feed of the
gnUSENET newsgroups, send mail to gnu.gnuse...@prep.ai.mit.edu
to ask for a feed.

Questions about GNU can be directed to g...@prep.ai.mit.edu or:
Free Software Foundation
675 Massachusetts Avenue
Cambridge, MA 02139
USA
+1-617-876-3296

Special notes about some of the groups:

Use gnu.emacs.help to discuss software on gnu.emacs.sources and to ask
for sources. gnu.emacs.sources is archived by many sites and they
want sources ONLY!

The gnu.*.bug groups are pseudo-moderated (that is, the group is
marked moderated so that postings are mailed to prep.ai.mit.edu and
then redistributed to the both the mailing list and newsgroup from
there). The gnu.*announce groups are all fully moderated.

hepnet
------

HEPnet is a collections of networks interconnecting high-energy and
nuclear physics research sites. The HEPnet netnews hierarchy was
created to facilitate discussions in the HEP and NP communitites. The
hierarchy is is maintained by National HEPnet Management. All groups
are bi-directionally gatewayed to mailing lists and automatically
archived. Questions, requests for feeds, and group deletions/additions
should be sent to net...@hep.net (Internet), netnews@hepnet (BITNET),
or hepnet::netnews (HEP-ES DECnet).

inet/ddn
--------

Another alternative hierarchy is the "inet/ddn" distribution. This
consists of many newsgroups bearing names similar to traditional
Usenet groups and corresponding to Internet discussion lists. These
groups are circulated using the NNTP transport mechanism amongst sites
on the Internet in an attempt to reduce the number of copies of these
groups flowing through the mail (some sites get these groups via UUCP
and other transport mechanisms, but the volume can be substantial and
load may be significant without a high-speed link).

The ddn groups, ddn.mgt-bulletin and ddn.newsletter, are no longer
valid. According to n...@nic.ddn.mil (Page Carter), the US Department
of Defense removed all non-*.mil addresses from the associated mailing
lists for these groups. A *.mil gateway will not be established
because that again exposes the traffic to non-*.mil sites via news
propagation.

Erik Fair <fa...@apple.com> led the creation of inet groups.

info
----

The "info" hierarchy is a collection of mailing lists gatewayed into
news at the University of Illinois. The lists are selected based on
local interests but have proven popular at a number of sites. Groups
are removed when they become available via more mainstream
hierarchies. Sites are encouraged to mark *'ed groups as 'n' in their
active file. These groups are generally concerned with getting real
work done and readers dislike extraneous postings. Postings can still
be made by emailing to the listed contact address.

k12
---

K12Net is a collection of conferences devoted to K-12 educational
curriculum, language exchanges with native speakers, and
classroom-to-classroom projects designed by teachers. The
conferences are privately distributed among FidoNet-compatible
electronic bulletin board systems in Africa, Asia, Australia,
Europe, and North America, as well as available from uunet.uu.net
as Usenet newsgroups in the hierarchy k12.*

Classroom-to-classroom projects are featured in the K12 "Channels"
which are periodically reassigned based on usage and appropriate
project length. They comprise the k12.sys hierarchy.

Forums for casual conversation among students are divided by grade
level in the k12.chat hierarchy; there is also an area for teachers to
exchange general ideas about using telecommunications in education.

For more information, contact one of the members of
the K12Net Council of Coordinators:

relcom
------

Relcom.* is the hierarchy of Russian-language newsgroups distributed
mostly on the territory of the former Soviet Union (non-CIS countries
included). These groups are available in Europe and Northern America;
due to the 8-bit encoding (KOI-8) of Cyrillic letters, minor software
modifications may be required.

Newsgroups under the hierarchy relcom.commerce contain classified
advertisements and are relatively high-volume; the nature of the
information distributed in those groups may contradict policy of some
networks. However, they may be valuable for researchers and
businessmen interested in the first-hand information on the economics
of FSU countries.

Dmitri Martynoff <dm...@newcom.kiae.su> is the Relcom staff member

vmsnet
------

This hierarchy is for topics of interest to VAX/VMS users (but not
necessarily VMS-specific). These groups are a project of the VMSnet working
group of the VAX SIG of the US Chapter of DECUS (the Digital Equipment
Computer User's Society). They are carried by most major usenet news sites,
and almost half of all netnews sites. To find a feed, contact the system
managers of news sites near you, and/or post to a local or regional
newsgroup and ask if anyone in the area is carrying the VMSnet newsgroups.

If you have tried these alternatives and still can not find a site in your
local area that carries the VMSnet groups, you can send mail to the VMSnet
Network Coordinator, currently Charles T. Smith, Jr. <c...@dragon.com>, who
will attempt to assist you in finding a feed for the groups. Alternatively,
you can send mail to the VMSnet mailing list <vms...@drycas.club.cc.cmu.edu>,
which is also gatewayed to the vmsnet.uucp newsgroup and ask for help.

In either case, be sure to state where you are geographically, and what
your constraints are. For instance, if you can only place local phone
calls, be sure to say just what areas are a local call for you. Also
describe your network connectivity (what networks you are on, your uucp
neighbors, etc.).

Here is a recent list of VMSnet newsgroups. NOTE: this is NOT the
definitive list of VMSnet newsgroups. The current definitive list is always
the most recent checkgroups posting in vmsnet.admin. It is posted monthly
or whenever the set of newsgroups is changed.

"alt" is a collection of newsgroups that is being distributed by a
collection of sites that choose to carry the groups. Many Usenet
sites do not receive these groups. Here is a recent list of many
active "alt" newsgroups. It represents a view of the altnet as seen
by UUNET. Another view can be found in a set of articles posted
periodically by Bruce Becker as <alt-...@gts.org> to
alt.config, alt.newgroup, alt.answers, news.admin.misc, and news.groups,
called ``Another listing of newsgroups in the "alt" hierarchy.''
That list seems to include every alt group he has ever seen, many of
which have never had a correct and widely distributed creation message
or do not get any continuing article traffic.

You can join the "alt subnet" by finding a site in your area that
carries the groups. Either send mail to the administrators of the
sites you connect to, or post something to a local "general" or
"wanted" newsgroup for your area. If no sites nearby are getting
them, you can get them from uunet or psi.

Submissions to the moderated alt groups should be made to the
addresses listed in the companion posting of moderator addresses. If
it does not include an address for one of these groups, it is probably
because the person who established the group as moderated did not make
sure that the addresses were properly installed. Submission addresses
for moderated groups should be sent to moderator...@uunet.uu.net.

You need to write to your news administrator and ask that they be added

Note these are Russian language newsgroups and you need a special
newsreader to read them.
