[leafnode-list] 1.11.5 moderated groups

Hi folks,

I'm running leafnode-1.11.5 (Debian package), on a new server with no 
customisations to the leafnode config file, yet.

I've been trying to discover why messages to moderated groups are just vanishing 
into the ether and would appreciate some help. I've read recent threads on this 
subject but these seem to be targeted more towards leafnode 2, which I'm not 

1. I'm actually trying to post to the linux.* hierarchy (or gmane.* for that 
matter). At least one of these groups is gated to a mailing list that claims 
totally open postings with no subscription required. I understood that it was a 
two-way gateway, but I could be wrong with no easy way to determine the true 

2. For sake of partioning the problem scenario, consider a moderated group such 
as uk.religion.christian. My ISP has this correctly flagged as moderated:

$ telnet news.plus.net 119
200 Welcome to PlusNet Usenet service (ptn-nntp-reader01.plus.net) (posting ok)
list active uk.religion.christian
215 Newsgroups in form "group high low flags".
uk.religion.christian 0000078491 0000047797 m

But, we have this, suggesting that the groups are not moderated (or that if they 
are, my ISP hasn't got it right):

$ telnet news.plus.net 119
200 Welcome to PlusNet Usenet service (ptn-nntp-reader01.plus.net) (posting ok)
list active linux.test*
215 Newsgroups in form "group high low flags".
linux.test.moderated 0000000015 0000000015 y
linux.test 0000000395 0000000316 y

However, my groupinfo file doesn't seem to record the m flag correctly. Or else 
maybe I'm misreading it (I haven't found much documentation on the format):

$ grep uk.religion.christian groupinfo
uk.religion.christian 0 1 1154423823 ?

This seems like it's telling me there are no articles currently downloaded in 
this group and it was last updated at Tue Aug  1 09:17:03 2006 UTC. But what of 
the "?" indicator?
