It seems a temporary error from the server. Can we wait some days before trying again?

...of course; sorry for my remarks which could appear sometimes stupid for other experimented users, but after rereading the english and translated texts, I try to check a maximum all links called from the page I'm releasing.

Thanks. I just followed your link for explainations. There, this leads us to the use of the 'News' service. Im under Windows and in my Firefox browser I enter the url => news:// , which runs Winmail.exe to open successfully (something like outlook but for news) with an entry for . I load all discussions (many, many !). Then I effectively see an entry: '' and '' between '.wikipedia.tamil' and '.wikipedia.telugu' corresponding to a segment of the URL we investigate. When I click on its line, a list of messages in the newsgroup is presented. But I dont see 59868, neither 'weekly' nor 'cycle' subjects to link to. On the other side may be articles are removed and archived (?) so that they may disappear from the current news list.
'.technical' entry contains diverse topics (radar...)
'.technical.ambassador' entry seems more adapted since it contains informations of weeks (Tech News (2020, week 9) ) and speaks of activities: 'Changes later this week' 'Future changes'...
So may I explain that, focussing on the 'ambassador' entry in a footer note of the page ?

Lars is maintaining, so it is probably fine to use it.

The page here says it's obsolete. Maybe it makes no sense to maintain the link and can just be removed

FYI, there has been some drama around gmane and Lars is now maintaining which I'm using.

OK the link will be removed but to keep track of our investigations, the information that this .ambassador group exists and is still active (last msg is from 9 march 2020), I only leave a reduced foonote about it. It describes developpement activities (ex: Johan Jönsson) which in turn are described back on meta as :
