Bug#2907: [firstname.lastname@example.org: Re: [email@example.com: Re: Guile plans]]
We discovered recently that news postings from our Debian machines
were saying "Organization: A poorly-maintained Debian GNU/Linux
system". Apparently that text was in a file /etc/news/organization,
but not by our choice--it came with the installation.

Hmm.. it should've asked you to enter the organization string as part
of the configuration process. I think that's when I entered it here
at work; or at least that's how inn does it, if I remember correctly.
If you're sure that it never asked you during configuration, you'll
want to tell email@example.com.
