That said, if you can put in out.going a message that your news server
will accept, leafnode will probably post it for you.  The first part is
the hardest.

Just for the record - this works, dropping an RFC-compliant message in
out.going and running fetchnews sends the message.

But as Doug wrote, it's /writing/ the message correctly that is the hard

There's a Python program here <https://github.com/blippy/soul> that generates a message, it's a starting point, at least.

The program scans a newsfroup, puts collected links into a message and posts it.

P.S. I forgot that the bloke who wrote it open-sourced it, it's been running on my server for yonks.
