Package: newsgate
Severity: normal

This is a hodge-podge of tools to gate news. Nothing for beginners.
Assembly required. Among others things this contains:

This kit provides two programs for "linking" RFC822 Mail messages and
RFC1036 Usenet News articles. Each half of the conversion is handled by
a different program, mail2news or news2mail. A few utility programs are
also included.

With these programs and the right set of mail aliases and news sys and
active file entries, it is possible to build any set of moderated,
unmoderated, one-way, or bi-directional gateways between any set of news
and mail groups and lists that your little heart desires.

Version: 1.6-23+rm

The newsgate package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the bugs that were still opened
against it.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/496783 . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
