slrn, new package (news reader)

New package: slrn

Slrn is a threaded news reader that's much faster if you happen
to have a  slow link to your nntp server. Also, I like the user
interface better than tin/trn, but I guess, that's personal.

The related package, tkslrn (which provides a tk/tcl interface
to slrn), is forthcomming.

It is elf mainly because I'm lasy.

Package: slrn
Version: 0.8.4 
Package_Revision: 1
Maintainer: Joost Witteveen <joostje@dds.hacktic.nl>
Description: Threaded News reader (fast for slow links)
 Like all the others a nice full screen textmode user interface.
 It tends to be much faster if you have a slow link to your
 news server: First time you start it it reads the newsgroup file
 (it will tell you how to do this), from then on startup is faster.
 slrn reads news from a news server via NNTP (the Network News 
 Transfer Protocol). This news server must of cource be available.
 It does not need inews (as far as I know)
Depends: libc5

There's no substitue for reading README's.
(except for using Debian, and typing "dpkg -i package.deb").
