Rest assured, he knows about it. It's probably the main reason
The problems were the following:
- fetchnews -f entered every group as new in the groupinfo file
- fetchnews -f reset the low and high water mark to 1
- nntpd didn't honor the optional GMT in the NEWGROUPS command.
It still doesn't recognize 'gmt' or mixed case. It would be
handy to have something like a
strcasestr( const char * haystack, const char * needle ), but
it obviously doesn't exist. I know, it's easy to write, but
this patch was intended to be a quick fix for a user having
problems with slrn. Anyway, all clients I know send only upper
case commands, so it's probably not a real problem, though a
violation of the RFCs.
