Requesting a News Feed
Document ID 107
Our news hierarchy is a local interest discussion area for the specific purpose of serving our university. With this goal in mind and following Usenet News conventions regarding local interest hierarchies, we have chosen to limit the distribution of our hierarchy to these entities:
- The main campus of Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas
- Other affiliated campuses within the Texas A&M University System
- Internet service providers in the Bryan/College Station area
- Other organizations with a direct relationship to Texas A&M University
If you meet the above criteria and would like to carry the tamu.* news hierarchy on your news server, please send a note to email@example.com requesting a feed.
We prefer that people get our hierarchy directly from us. If you are receiving a tamu.* feed from us, we ask that you not pass it along to any of your other newsfeeds. If someone specifically requests it from you, please refer them to information on being a Usenet peer with news.tamu.edu.
All [tamu.*] newgroup and rmgroup will be signed with the TAMU News Admin PGP Key. If you are using any INN variant, we highly recommend you install PGP and configure your news server to verify tamu.* control messages.
