Ah, ok.. that's interesting to hear.

I need something for a local spool, we're running a low-traffic news 
system over packet radio here.. INN is too much for this, with only
< 100k/day.

I just `debianized' my old system and thought it would be nice to have
a debianized news system.. 

Last night I compiled the latest cnews release, and it seems to work.

Btw, what is the right place for local installations? I used
/etc/news for configfiles and /usr/local/somewhere for the binaries.
Is /usr/local/etc/news better?

Maybe I should better read fsstnd than asking such dumb questions here :-)

Anyway, thanks for your replies!
