Quoted from a posting (the footer):
This article has been digitally signed by the moderator, using PGP.
http://www.iki.fi/mjr/cola-public-key.asc has PGP key for validating
Send submissions for comp.os.linux.announce to: linux-announce@news.ornl.gov
PLEASE remember a short description of the software and the LOCATION.
This group is archived at http://www.iki.fi/mjr/linux/cola.html

Looking in the header I see this:

Still, from what I know of Usenet News the submission to
moderator is transparent, just post to the newsgroup and
if moderated (as this is) it ends up at the moderator who
then sends it out for real.

I have a note ready to go already, just waiting for the politics
to quieten down before starting up the technical topics. I'll
give it a try this weekend and post a first try to this list.

Fortunately the Debian docs guru is subscribed to this list...

The Redhat people are probably busily ironing out the buglets
in Redhat 6.1 but I hope they can find the time to slip a new
link in before shipping out the final product. Those responsible
are also subscribed here.

Then there are the others, check the right column of this page:
