The first time that you post a message to a group, gmane sends you an 
email to confirm that your From: address is valid. You have to reply to 
that before your original message will be posted. If you don't see this 
message, check your junk-mail folder.

You may also have to wait a couple of hours for posts to show up. I 
don't know if that delay is on the gmane side or if it's the Openmoko
