Re: [leafnode-list] Posting to a not-yet-retrieved group

I find that if I click on the article in my newsreader (I am using Knode) and 
actually open and "read" the placeholder, the necessary file in 
/var/spool/news/interesting.groups is created immediately.

BTW, (attention Matthias) for some reason a reply by Ross Boylan to a 
different thread is shown in Knode as a reply to your query.  Using Leafnode 
1.9.29.rel here.
