What "belongs" to these two groups? Some possibilities that I can think of
are books, useful web sites, and stored procedures. Perhaps reviews of
these objects as well.

I see announcements from David Owen and Rob Verschoor about websites in the
administration, etc. newsgroups. And sp__optdiag from Kevin Sherlock in the
administration and P+T newsgroups. I like to know about this stuff but I
also like to search newsgroups APPROPRIATELY. (No criticism of the above
individuals intended.)

If announcements/publications are always going to be shotgunned to various
newsgroups then I'm not sure that there is any point to having these two
newgroups.

If these are going to stay ... are there any guidelines for the appropriate
contents?
