| After my post I discovered the Bioconductor mailing list can be read as
| gmane newsgroups, too.  Just don't look for "Bioconductor".

| gmane.science.biology.informatics.conductor
| http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.science.biology.informatics.conductor

Interesting.  As I found out, Gmane is capable of alias'ing -- a user had
registered a list I admin unbeknownst to me, and under a a suboptimal
name. The Gmane folks simply added another identifier for the list so that it
can now be seen under both names.

So you could write an email to them explaining the situation and maybe
suggestion a good second name for the list so that it can one day be found
under BioConductor too.
