[leafnode-list] Re: Welcome to leafnode-list@wpxx02.toxi.uni-wuerzburg.de

Preface: I have leafnode and INN on the same machine, but not sharing
the spool. I use separate directories, and the rnews commands are in
different paths (currently, /usr/local/sbin for leafnode's rnews and
/usr/lib/news/bin for INN's rnews). I'm using SuSE Linux 7.0 currently.

Isn't the r for receive? If so, rnews_leafnode or rnews-ln might be
suggestions worthwhile considering.

What's supposed to be in there? I don't quite get the idea of this
directory. "Better administration" is too faint a description for me.

I prefer emacs and use vim 5.7 from time to time, but if we all start
reformatting the ChangeLog, we'll end up in a mess. I'd like to see the
ChangeLog in the format GNU software commonly uses (example below), your
format deviates from that; mcedit however is also happy with GNU-format
ChangeLog files (and I'd like to see all the world use ISO 8601 date
format, but that is probably not going to happen this decade).

However, the Emacs Outline mode may be useful (it can hide text below a
certain structuring level (chapter/section/subsection/...) from your
view to maintain the overview).

Is that actually more than this?

        #! /bin/sh
        exec /path/to/texpire

Here's the GNU ChangeLog example mentioned above (from my yet unreleased
