~ $dpkg -s sn                   (I cut down a little bit)

Package: sn
Section: news
Installed-Size: 440
Maintainer: Jorgen Schaefer <forcer@mindless.com>
Version: 0.3.2-1
Provides: news-transport-system
Description: Small NNTP server for leaf sites
 sn is a small news system for small sites serving perhaps a few
 dozen newsgroups, and with a slow connection to the internet.
 It is similar to leafnode (ftp.troll.no, by Arnt Gulbrandsen).
 The target user is a home or SOHO with a single modem connection
 to the Internet, maybe running IP masq or similar, and serving a
 few workstations.

          It is difficult to produce a television documentary that is both
      incisive and probing when every twelve minutes one is interrupted by
                        twelve dancing rabbits singing about toilet paper.
