The technical problems with our news server have been resolved. It is back online now !
News Server Back Online
Great - could it be, that while consolidation of groups took place, private.vulcan somehow "survived? This is the only group, my Agent complains "is not carried by server...", while the other obsolet groups are silently skipped with no prior intervention by me.
That newsgroup should be gone as well.
We will import the contents of the old newsgroups later today
