If you don't lower the "high water mark" in the groupinfo file, there is no
(numbering will start from this mark+1 if not already used).

I suggest you to run fetchnews with the -n option because "water marks" are
reset to one in case of automatic unsubscription in the current release.

..and if some old articles have been previously deleted in /var/spool/news/,
names already existing in your zip file can be used if you subscribe again.
