The openwatcom.* Hierarchy
The main news server for the Open Watcom project is news.openwatcom.org, but the openwatcom newsgroups are also available at various other news servers (including Google Groups) and news server operators are encouraged to add the openwatcom hierarchy to their servers.
A checkgroups control message will usually be sent on the 4th of each month.
Due to the amount of spam some of the openwatcom.* groups receive (mainly via Google Groups), third-party cancel messages might be sent to clean these up (these cancel messages will be signed using the same PGP key as the control messages).
The following groups may be present at some sites or may occasionally appear in the "Newsgroups:" header. However none of them are currently regarded as legitimate openwatcom.* groups and should be ignored/removed:
Newsfeeds for openwatcom.* can be set up from newsfeed.cmeerw.net (more information) or from the main news.openwatcom.org server.
