I wonder if a Web Forum is the right front-end to Usenet infrastructure.
I find the forums extremely inconcise and cumbersome to use.

Authentication was part of the Lua extension, but had bugs;
unfortunately, the maintainer, Clemens Fischer, disappeared, and so did
his domain - and ultimately, I had to remove the Lua stuff again,
there's only rudimentary PAM support, and it doesn't break down to group
access limits.
