I had this trouble myself when I started VUW.  I agree: it should be 
added to the FAQ...

To add new news:
1) @send *news    (exactly like sending mail to any mailing list)
2) Once you are finished composing and sending your message to *news, do:
   @mail on *news    (that'll show you what message has what number).
3) Pick the number of the message you want to add from the list provided 
   @mail on *news.
4) To add that message, do: @addnews [# of message] to *news
5) If a message is old and you want it removed, do: @rmnews [# of 
message] from *news

Cheers ;)
