Mozilla Staff Seeking Volunteer to Set Up and Manage mozilla.org News Server

However, Mozilla's newsgroups are still hosted on Netscape's servers. While the Mozilla Foundation has the hardware for running its own news server, it has no spare resources to actually set it up, create the new groups, work out a transition plan and so on. If any experienced news admins out there want to help out, the job application is bug 215294. The reorganization plan would set up new groups for web developers and end-users, reorganize the Mozilla developers' groups, and pull them all out from under Netscape's name."

To my knowledge, all Google is is a giant Web-based archive of (exisiting) Usenet newsgroups--i.e., a duplication and slightly different way of accessing what already exists, so one can't actually "create" a group because that's not what the service is.
