The following is a list of currently active USENET newsgroups as of
nto seven broad classifications:  "news", "soc", "talk", "misc",
"sci", "comp" and "rec".  Each of these classifications is organized
nto groups and subgroups according to topic.
"comp"  Topics of interest to both computer professionals and
	hobbyists, including topics in computer science, software
	source, and information on hardware and software systems.
"sci"   Discussions marked by special and usually practical knowledge,
	relating to research in or application of the established
"misc"  Groups addressing themes not easily classified under any of the
	other headings or which incorporate themes from multiple
"soc"	Groups primarily addressing social issues and socializing.
"talk"	Groups largely debate-oriented and tending to feature long
	discussions without resolution and without appreciable amounts
	of generally useful information.
"news"	Groups concerned with the news network and software themselves.
"rec"	Groups oriented towards hobbies and recreational activities.
These "world" newsgroups are (usually) circulated around the entire
USENET -- this implies world-wide distribution.  Not all groups
actually enjoy such wide distribution, however.  The European Usenet
and Eunet sites take only a selected subset of the more "technical"
and "soc" classifications).  Many sites do not carry some or all of
the comp.binaries groups.
There are groups in other subcategories, but they are local: to
nstitutions, to geographic regions, etc. and they are not listed
the propagation of news articles.  Currently, distributions include:
	world		worldwide distribution (default)
	att		limited to AT&T
	can		limited to Canada
	eunet		limited to European sites
	na		limited to North America
	usa		limited to the United States
There may be other regional and local distribution categories available
at your site.  Most US states have distribution categories named after
the two letter abbreviation for that state or category (e.g., "ga" for
Georgia, "nj" for New Jersey). Please use an appropriate distribution
category if your article is not likely to be of interest to USENET
Some groups are moderated or are monitored mailing lists.  They can
only be posted to by mailing submissions to the coordinator (provided
n a companion posting).  Some selected sites provide automatic
automatically mails the article for the poster. Some of the moderated
newsgroups to facilitate distribution and posting from the Usenet.
Other of the "world" groups are bidirectionally gatewayed with
mailing list.  A complete list of moderated newsgroups, submission
addresses and moderators is given in a companion posting.
The following "world" groups have been gatewayed with the listed
broken software and/or gateways; such groups are marked with an
asterisk ("*") in the list below.  Please contact me if you should know
of their current status.  Also note that the group "comp.lang.forth" is
Some of these lists are gated one-way into Usenet groups; those groups
You form such an address by putting "-request" before the "@" symbol,
as in "unix-emacs-request@bbn.com".  This gets your message directly to
the list maintainer instead of broadcasting it to all the readers of
the list.
Also note that moderators of Usenet groups may not be in charge of the
corresponding mailing list or gateway.  For example, the moderator of
comp.sources.unix does not have anything to do with the unix-sources
mailing list; matters concerning the mailing list should be addressed
to unix-sources-request@brl.mil
