Bug#235941: RFP: papercut -- nntp server frontend for webbased forums

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : papercut
  Version         : 0.9.12
  Upstream Author : Joao Prado Maia <jpm AT pessoal.org>
* URL             : http://www.papercut.org/
* License         : BSD
  Description     : nntp server frontend for webbased forums

Papercut is a news server written in Python. Its main objective is to integrate
existing web based message board software (Phorum is one of the supported ones)
with an Usenet front-end. However, its extensibility enables developers to
write their own containers for the storage of the Usenet articles (messages).


 It would be really nice if you could pick it up. I know next to nothing
about python so if I would be working on it I wouldn't upload it into
the Debian pool -- I would just "use" it.

 Jeroen van Wolffelaar raised interest but isn't into python neither.
But as phpBB maintainer he would be interested that the hook for phpBB
works well. FWIW, Tollef Fog Heen has worked out a hook for phpBB before
(but hasn't used it recently, so doesn't know if it is still working):

 Thanks in anyone interested in it. I guess the userbase would be quite
well because I still hope that many Debian users prefer NNTP over
webbased forums :)

 So long,
The following two statements are usually both true:
There's not enough documentation.
There's too much documentation.
