    comp.lang.php is the main one .. a while back they decided to open it, and
    replace alt.* ... but all it's done is confuse people .....

    "RATIONALE: comp.lang.php
    An alt.php newsgroup currently exists and is well used, and there is also an
    alt.comp.lang.php group in existence. Not all servers carry alt.*
    newsgroups, however, essentially splitting the PHP Usenet community. Almost
    all news servers carry the comp.lang.* groups, which would make the group
    more accessible to users, in addition to unifying the two "Usenet PHP
    factions." Furthermore, every respected programming language has a group
    under comp.lang.*.
    PHP has matured into a respected (and powerful) language widely in use. As
    such, a group in the comp.lang.* hierarchy seems appropriate at this time.
    Finally, posts in comp.lang.* groups are retained longer than posts in alt.*
    groups on many servers, another reason that a switch to a comp.lang.* group
    would benefit the PHP community."
