[leafnode-list] Error reporting when server not available
I just stumbled upon a situation where leafnode 2's error reporting is less
than helpful. What I mean is that if this happens:
(02:42:25) backstreets:~$ telnet news.utu.fi nntp
Connected to news.utu.fi.
Escape character is '^]'.
503 NNTP server unavailable. Try later.
Connection closed by foreign host.
then leafnode reports something like this:
[backstreets:/var/spool/news] root# sudo -u news /usr/local/sbin/fetchnews
fetchnews: version 2.0b8_ma9; verbosity level is 4; debugging level is 0
fetchnews: Not automatically unsubscribing unread newsgroups.
reading /var/spool/news/leaf.node/groupinfo and /etc/leafnode/local.groups
found 0 articles in in.coming.
news.utu.fi: connecting to port nntp
trying address 126.96.36.199 port 119...
connected: address 188.8.131.52 port 119.
news.utu.fi: TCP send buffer size is 33304
NNTP server went away while waiting for response: Undefined error: 0
news.utu.fi: error, server replied to MODE READER: "??áÿü?"
fetchnews: 0 articles fetched, 0 killed, in 3 seconds
fetchnews: Fixing XOVER
fetchnews: Background process finished
when, in my opinion, it should report the original error 503 to the log and
finish gracefully. Or am I missing something?
