# # This hierarchy was removed in the Great Renaming of 1988. # # A site in Norway is currently (as of 2002) gatewaying various mailing # lists into fa.* newsgroups, but that site does not appear to be issuing # any control messages for those groups. # # This hierarchy is still in use, but it has no active maintainer. # Control messages for this hierarchy should not be honored without # confirming that the sender is the new hierarchy maintainer.
Actions since May 2003: none
Newsgroups: none [check raw logs if your checkgroups differs from the one below]
