INN was removed from general view because the Debianised version was
too buggy; the maintainer didn't have time to work on it in among
other Debian and non-Debian stuff.
I'm not aware of anyone having volunteered to take it over. I've a
little experience with INN but currently don't have the time either.
If you just want to read news, rather than run a local spool, you
don't want INN or C-News but just a newsreader such as trn and a copy
of inews. The inewsinn package is still visible. It may be that some
of the dependencies are buggy, of course...
