[Most recent change: 10 December 1986 by]

The following is a list of currently active USENET newsgroups as of
16 December 1986.  There are two basic subcategories of netwide 
newsgroups:  "world" and  "mod".  The "world" groups are divided into
seven broad classifications:  "news", "soc", "talk", "misc", "sci",
"comp" and "rec".  Each of these classifications is organized into
groups and subgroups according to topic.

The "comp" classification includes topics of interest to computer
professionals and hobbyists, including topics in computer science,
software source, and information on hardware and software systems.  The
"sci" newsgroups are intended to be technical in nature and relate to
the established sciences.  The "misc" groups address themes not easily
classified under any of the other headings or which incorporate themes
from multiple categories. The "soc" groups address social issues and
socializing.  The "talk" groups are largely debate-oriented, and tend
to feature long discussions without resolution and without appreciable
amounts of useful information.  The "news" groups concern the news
network and software itself.  The "rec" groups are recreation and
hobby-oriented groups.  An eventual goal is to include the current
"mod" groups into the same seven category naming scheme sometime in

The "world" and "mod" newsgroups are (usually) circulated around the
entire USENET -- this implies world-wide distribution.  Not all groups
actually enjoy such wide distribution, however.  The European Usenet
sites (Eunet) take only a selected subset of the more "technical"
groups, and controversial "noise" groups are often not carried by many
sites in the US and Canada (these groups are primarily under the "talk"
and "soc" classifications).

"mod" groups are moderated or are monitored mailing lists.  They can
only be posted to by mailing submissions to the coordinator (provided
in a companion posting).  Some selected sites provide automatic
remailing in support of 2.11 news -- posting to a mod group
automatically mails the article for the poster. Some of the "mod"
groups are gatewayed to USENET from the ARPA Internet and appear as
"mod" groups to facilitate distribution and posting from the Usenet.

Some of the "world" groups are bidirectionally gatewayed with
ARPA Internet mailing lists; items submitted from the ARPA side to
the digest are split up and submitted to the USENET group, while
articles submitted on the USENET side are bundled up and submitted to
the mailing list.  Most such gatewayed groups are done as "mod"
groups.  A complete list of moderated newsgroups, submission addresses
and moderators is given in a companion posting.

"net" groups are remnants of the old naming scheme and they will soon
be deleted or merged into the "world" group structure.

The following "world" groups have been gatewayed with the listed
Arpa Internet lists.  Some of them may not still be gatewayed due to
broken software and/or gateways; such groups are marked with an
asterisk ("*") in the list below.  Please contact me if you should know
of their current status.  Also note that the group "comp.lang.forth" is
gatewayed with the Bitnet discussion list "umfo...@weizmann.bitnet".

	Usenet Group		Arpa Internet list
	------------		----------------

There are groups in other subcategories, but they are local: to
institutions, to geographic regions, etc. and they are not listed
here.  Note that these distribution categories can be used to restrict
the propagation of news articles.  Currently, distributions include:
	world		worldwide distribution (default)
	att		limited to AT&T
	can		limited to Canada
	eunet		limited to European sites
	na		limited to North America
	usa		limited to the United States
There may be other regional and local distribution categories available
at your site.  Most US states have distribution categories named after
the two letter abbreviation for that state or category (e.g., "ga" for
Georgia, "nj" for New Jersey). Please use an appropriate distribution
category if your article is not likely to be of interest to USENET
readers worldwide.

Please notify me of any errors or additions to the list below.
