I'm not actively working on it anymore, i put it on the wish list (see 
linuxfromscratch.org/wish.php). The problem we were facing were mail loops. 
At  a point the mailinglist<->newsgroup gateway was working, but when a 
message was posted to the mailinglist list it ended up on the newsgroup fine. 
Messages posted to the newsgroup ended up in the mailinglist just fine too.

The problem was here: 
All messages ariving on mailinglist copied to newsgroup
All messages ariving on newgroups copied to mailinglist

see the infinite loop? Haven't been able to fix it yet.
