Re: inews path question

>From the (admittedly years old) impression I got from inn, inews should be
seen as the news injector (inject-news), corresponding to what sendmail
is for mail, meant as a backend to other programs that allow you to
post messages, but not supposed to be called directly by the end user.
As such, the proper place would be /usr/sbin, or at least, it wouldn't
need to go in /usr/bin.

Things may have changed since then, though.

Just saying this because there's a case to be made that inews is not
for the end user.

Ciao.                                                             Vincent.
