Re: [leafnode-list] Files for newsgroups

Just to add to this discussion:

I currently run leafnode at home on a small internal network, of which
2 machines and 2 users are using it.  It is /much/ less trouble to setup
and maintain then INN or other server packages which is the primary reason
I choose to go with it.

I am quite happy maintaining things (any package, not just leafnode) with 
command-line options and vi'ing of config files.  

If there was to be an administrative package made available, I would prefer
the web-style interface over a GUI, as I do not run X at home unless forced
by necessity.

I would be happy to beta-test anything that comes out thats web-based.
