When a new group is supposed to be created, a message is sent out from
us to all USENET sites.  Many sites act on the message automatically
and create the group immediately.  Other sites do not allow automatic
group creation and require the intervention of the news (systems)
operator to create the group.  Odds are that this group was overlooked
at your site.  You should request that your sysop create this group
ASAP.  If he/she needs any further information, please contact Kenton
Hoover for help at hoover at
