Configuration is very simple: with your newsreader you subscribe to 
gmane.linux.ubuntu.user and you can read the group in your favorite 
newsreader. You can also post to the group as long as you use a valid 
email-address in the From: header. Gmane will send all your messages to 
the email-list and will post all email-list messages in the newsgroup. 
Depending on your newsreader all messages are threaded and/or ordered by 
date in one place.
