Yeah like I say I only looked very quickly... was just providing hints 
rather than anything specific as I'm not a wine user myself...

That's exactly the point :)

If you look into it you'll see, but the idea is that you can read 
mailing lists very easily as a Newsgroup. When you want to post, you go 
through a Gmane gateway that allows you to post to 99% of mailing lists 
without signing up for them. This makes it very easy to post messages to 
groups you do not intend to follow closely..... trust me it's good :)
