I am aware of rmgroup/newgroup limitations, but couldnât two 
leafnode-2 servers communicate messages from one to another via 
fetchnews? If I would install leafnode with pyg (email-to-news 
bidirectional gateway https://gitlab.com/mcepl/pyg) inside of my 
companyâs network (behind VPN), could I then fetch a there-local 
newsgroup to my local leafnode-2 via fetchnews? After all, 
fetchnews pretends to be just a regular newsreader, doesnât it?  
So, leafnode server should not be able to even recognize that 
those messages fetched by it will be propagated to other
