[Openmcl-devel] OT: Posting to openmcl-devel via gmane

Hi all,

I normally read the mail lists I subscribe to via emacs/gnus/gmane as
I prefer to read all list/news via gnus. Sometimes, I will be cc'ed on
a list post and will get (and reply to) the email before I see the
post on the mailing list; however, most of the time, I read and reply
via my newsreader. Luckily, most of the mailing lists I read
(including openmcl-devel) are available via gmane. If I reply to a
mailing list post that I read via gmane, one of three things normally

1. If it's the first time that I've posted a message to that gmane
group, I get an email asking me to confirm that I am me and that I do
want to post.
2. If I've posted previously to that group, my post just goes through
and appears on both the mailing list and gmane.
3. Sometimes the mailing list will reject posts from gmane and I'll
get an email to that effect.

In the past week, I've posted 3 separate messages to openmcl-devel via
gmane.lisp.openmcl.devel but done of them have appeared on
openmcl-devel (nor do they appear on gmane.lisp.openmcl.devel). So,
none of the 3 things I've listed above is happening when I post to
gmane.lisp.openmcl.devel. Is anyone successfully posting to
gmane.lisp.openmcl.devel? If so, do you have any idea why my posts
might be getting "lost"?
