[leafnode-list] Fetchnews: maxnews will not accept value greater than 20000
No matter what value I try to set "maxfetch" in /etc/leafnode/config to,
it will never become more than 20000 internally. Setting it to a lower
value works as expected. I am using 1.9.19.
Where this kills me is that I use NewsPlex. It can be told to retrieve
large articles at a later time, which can speed things up quite a bit
since it will retrieve them in parallel. The articles are stored in a
pseudo group "async" and are then picked up the next time fetchnews is
The problem is that NewsPlex is very liberal with the numbers it assigns
to the articles. Recently I had about 2500 articles to retrieve, but
their number span made it look like about 200,000 articles were there. I
had to run fetchnews, then fiddle with files on both machines and run
fetchnews again, and again, and again...
Being able to set maxfetch to a much higher value would make life much
easier. Even better being would be the ability to set it to infinity.
("maxfetfch = 0"?)
