I'm not an expert on gmane. But I did listen to the discussion when it
got started, since it all took place on the Gnus list.
Based on my memory of that discussion, the official stance of the people
actually running gmane is "You can submit lists for archiving, and we
trust you not to do anything stupid. Submitting lists that don't want to
be archived is something stupid -- don't do that."
It sounds like people aren't behaving, which sucks. That probably means
that gmane is going to have to limit who can request lists be archived to
just the people who can be trusted to have already contacted the list
owner and asked permission.
