You sign up at, then you get a confirmation email,
then you answer that, then you get a welcome message. Thereafter your
posting's From: address needs to be the address you've signed up with.
You can post to the mailing list or to the gmane newsgroup at that
point, but your first posting to the gmane newsgroup will require
another round of confirmation for GMane's own purposes.

If you've executed every one of these steps, then it should work, and
if it isn't working, I have nothing more I can tell you.

Currently the following addresses are subscribed, apparently for you:


The ones with *s on them are still moderated, meaning that you've
never posted from those addresses.
