rnews for leafnode
it may be that I have something similar to a working rnews which I would
like to have tested under real-life conditions. People who are interested
to risk the contents of their news spool, please drop me a mail. You
should be familiar with C and willing and able to accumulate debug logs
and possibly do gdb runs. Thanks.
Here is the very preliminary man page:
rnews - sort batch files into spool
rnews [-v|D] [file|directory]
Leafnode is a USENET package intended for small sites,
where there are few users and little disk space, but where
a large number of groups is desired.
Rnews is the program that sorts files into your newsspool.
Rnews can currently sort compressed and uncompressed news
batches as well as news articles.
Rnews can also be applied to a directory; it will then
open the directory and sort all files inside this direc-
tory into the newsspool. Rnews will not recursively
descend through directories.
Rnews sets its real and effective uid to "news".
-v Be verbose. A maximum of four -v can be used.
-D Switch on debugging.
file Sort this file into the newsspool. The file can
also be a rnews batch, optionally compressed.
Sort the contents of this directory into the
Rnews makes some use of the /tmp directory.

An implication of this code is that this version of rnews might also
be suitable to sort articles into the news spool that were obtained with
suck, newsflash or the like. I have not tried it yet, though.
