This is a good idea, but I wonder if this can be generalized even more.
What leafnode needs to do is a real routing task. It needs to decide
where a post needs to go, which upstream servers (in which format, UUCP
is still pending), if it needs to be posted locally, or if it needs to
be mailed to the moderator instead.
I wonder if this restrictions-based approach is the right model or if it
should rather be something like
override moderator for (group) to joe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
route (group pattern or pcre) to nntp:server1, uucp:server2
route (group pattern or pcre) to nntp:server3
route (group pattern or pcre) to nntp:server4, nntp:server5
route (group pattern or pcre) to none
Obviously this won't work for the incoming side, so there would have to
be things like
I wonder if the default would be to route all unmatched groups to all
known servers - and drop the feedtype parameter. Further thoughts are
