[leafnode-list] New texpire(8) manual page for leafnode-2 alpha
I've revised the manual page for leafnode-2 as follows:
texpire(8) Leafnode texpire(8)
texpire - delete old news article threads
texpire [-fnr] [-D debugmode] [-F configfile]
Leafnode is a USENET package intended for small sites,
where there are few users and little disk space, but where
a large number of groups is desired.
The design of leafnode is intended to repair any problems
itself, to detect what newsgroups the users read, and to
require no manual manual maitenance.
Texpire is the program which deletes old articles from the
local news spool, rehashes the spool after updates of
Switch on debug mode. This will log a lot of infor-
mation via syslog to the facility "news" with the
priority "debug". Useful for tracking down problems
with your upstream server(s). If debug mode has
already been set in the config file, increase ver-
bosity. See config.example for details on how to
set the debugmode.
Read configuration from an alternate config file
instead of /etc/leafnode/config.
-f Expire will look at the arrival time of the arti-
cles rather than at the access time. Expiry will
still be thread-based.
-n Dry run mode. In this mode, texpire will not delete
anything, it will just write what it would do with-
-r Repair and migrate mode. In this mode, texpire
tries to save as much of the news spool as it can.
This mode MUST be used when upgrading to a leafnode
version which has a different hash function for
message.id than the version previously installed.
If in doubt, use -r after an update.
-v Be verbose. A maximum of four -v can be used (the
more v, the more verbose). Don't expect all the
output to make sense.
-V Print texpire version information and exit.
/etc/leafnode/config.example documents the debug modes.
See leafnode(8) for the list of other files affected.
Texpire is thread-based, not article-based. That means it
will only delete an article if the whole thread it is in
has not been accessed within the given expiry period
(through the expire and groupexpire parameters).
Texpire ignores "Expires" headers.
Texpire is unable to delete articles in groups where arti-
cle numbers are far apart, because the required memory
depends on the difference between lowest and highest arti-
cle number in that group.
