Okay, so you have altered groupinfo to include the new groups.
You also have to create the directory structure for the group properly.
It sounds like the create of the news post file is failing.

Basically its: replace the '.' with '/' in the group name and stick a 
'.overview' at every level where posting is permitted. R/W/X on all dirs 
and everything owned by news user.

for 'local.test' you will also need to do:
    mkdir /var/spool/news/local
    mkdir /var/spool/news/local/test
    chown -R news:news /var/spool/news/local
    touch /var/spool/news/local/test/.overview
    chmod -R 775 /var/spool/news/local

(I am not certain if the creation of .overview is actually required, but 
it doesn't hurt to make sure its present and empty to start with)
