This is the right place, or one of many right places
because yes, there are Gnus lists/newsgroups.

One can use Gnus and in particular Gmane to find out.
And Gmane is actually the answer to your other
question as well!

You set it up like this:

    (setq gnus-select-method '(nntp "news.gmane.org"))

If you need help to get it up and running, check out
this file, and the other files in the same directory
(or ask here again, of course):

    http://user.it.uu.se/~embe8573/conf/emacs-init/gnus/gnus-my.el

When you get it to work, run
`gnus-group-enter-server-mode' (hit `^' in the group
buffer), then find the Gmane line (should be
"nntp: news.gmane.org" or something similar) and hit
RET. Then make a search for "gnus":

    K     64: gmane.emacs.gnus.announce
    K    787: gmane.emacs.gnus.buildbot
    K   6351: gmane.emacs.gnus.commits
    K  12504: gmane.emacs.gnus.cvs
    K  82890: gmane.emacs.gnus.general
    K     30: gmane.emacs.gnus.patches
    K    262: gmane.emacs.gnus.semi
    K  13531: gmane.emacs.gnus.semi.japanese
    K      1: gmane.emacs.gnus.tutorial
       17939: gmane.emacs.gnus.user

Move point to the desired group and do
`gnus-browse-unsubscribe-current-group' (key: `u') to
subscribe (yes, the name is confusing).

And this is the whole thing with Gmane - you don't
have to split mails from mailing lists into
pseudo-newsgroups anymore! Gmane does that for you.
So in your group buffer you can have

    6     gmane.comp.shells.zsh.devel              463
    6     gmane.comp.shells.zsh.user                87
    6     gmane.emacs.devel                       2399
    6     gmane.emacs.erc.general
    3     gmane.emacs.gnus.user
    3     gmane.emacs.help                          18
    6     gmane.emacs.sources                       28
    6     gmane.emacs.w3m
    3     gmane.linux.debian.user                    1

and so on but you don't need to deal with any of the
subscription overhead and you don't have to do the
splitting stuff.
