Oh yes.  That's a better idea :-)

Yes, I think so, but not well.

Rather than using <change-newsgroup> to select a server, you can use
`mailboxes` to populate the sidebar, e.g.

    mailboxes news://news.gmane.io/comp.lang.c
    mailboxes news://news.gmane.io/rec.arts.poems
    mailboxes news://news.gmane.io/alt.swedish.chef.bork.bork.bork

You should be able to mix them with other mailbox types.


The NNTP driver hasn't had the love and attention that other drivers have.
If there are any NNTP users out there who would like to help,
I'll happily assist them in improving the NNTP support.
