I access GMane through KNode.
But recently I have not been able to post through KNode,
but only by sending email (with KMail) to
users at lists.fedoraproject.org , which appears to be mirrored by
gmane.linux.redhat.fedora.general .

However, I have not seen this stated officially anywhere.
Is there (incidentally) any way of determining which mailing list
a gmane newsgroup is mirroring?
One would expect it to be stated in Group Properties in KNode,
but it does not appear to be.

I posted this first to the gmane newsgroup,
but it never appeared there.

Any advice or suggestions gratefully received.
