You needn't run fetchnews if you only offer local groups, it suffices to
only run texpire occasionally to purge old posts, if that is desired.

You may want to set the groupexpire according to documentation to
prevent expiry at all and run texpire nonetheless because it is
currently also a spool validator tool.

I am not sure if leafnode complains about an incomplete active file then
