This is the home page of the greenend.* usenet hierarchy. This is a private hierarchy of the Green End Organization. It is now carried by three sites.

1. Can I Become A greenend.* User?

If you have access to a news server that carries greenend.*, you should be able to read and post.

2. Can I Become A greenend.* Site?

Membership is open to SGO VPN sites (and possibly some others). I suggest you post a request for peers to greenend.config on some existing greenend.* site (e.g. chiark). Alternatively mail
