How to use LFS news-server?


The BOOK says
Quote:
The mailing lists hosted at linuxfromscratch.org are also accessible via the Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP) server. All messages posted to a mailing list are copied to the corresponding newsgroup, and vice versa. The news server is located at news.linuxfromscratch.org.
How does one subscribe to news-servers in general? How can one read the news from "news.linuxfromscratch.org" in particular? What software is needed for this?

Ooops!
Sorry for misleading you. That was what a previous version of the BOOK said. It looks like now lfs server does not provide NNTP service.
