gmane.comp.gnu.diffutils.bugs already subscribed?

Hey guys,

I can't seem to subscribe gmane.comp.gnu.diffutils.bugs because it is
already subscribed. I get the following error:

"A group called gmane.comp.gnu.diffutils.bugs is already subscribed.
Choose a new name."

However the group doesn't seem to exist:

http://dir.gmane.org/search.php?match=gmane.comp.gnu.diffutils.bugs

Searching gmane groups in Gnus?

Gmane is made searchable with the excellent xapian search engine
 http://search.gmane.org/

Would it be possible to extend nnir to do search in Gmane groups from
inside Gnus?  How much work would it be on the Gnus side?  Is there
anything that needs to be done on the xapian side?  Is there an
interface that is appropriate from searches using other applications
than web browsers?

Thanx!

It does now, it seems.

The first email to the group triggers the creation, so if you try to
subscribe the group in the period between a prior subscription request
was handled by an administrator and the first email arriving after that,
you'll get the result you experienced.

  Best regards,

    Adam

There is support for Gmane already.  Dunno if it still working and if
it fits your needs.

Since the full and complete date of the most recent message is a few
centimetres below the top of your browser window, I don't really think
this is much of an issue.

I haven't heard anything from the Cygwin people about this, so might it
be a problem specific to your messages?
