As another data point, I even ran 1.9.18 successfully under the
Public beta.

I'm running 1.9.19 under 10.0.4 and I'm utterly pleased with

As far as needing to be root when you install, it also works
if you install via sudo.  IIRC, you'll also need set up
Netinfo to let leafnode handle incoming NNTP connections.

Another tip -- I've found that leafnode performs better if you place
your news spool on a UFS formatted partition.  You'll also
spend less time fsck-ing if you happen to have a hard crash
(power failure, etc.) if you use UFS for your spool.
