I have packaged up leafnode into a Debian package and have been using it for
a couple of months and it is ideal for a small site.

I'm hoping to get it up for ftp shortly.

Description: USENET software package designed for small sites                   
 Leafnode is a USENET software package designed for small sites, with a         
 few tens of readers and only a slow link to the net.                           
 Only groups that someone has been reading in the past week are fetched         
 from the upstream NNTP server.  When someone stops reading a group,            
 leafnode will stop reading that group a week later, and when someone          
 starts reading a group, leafnode will grab all the articles it can in
 that group the next time it runs.                                              
 - Uses very little disk space and bandwidth compared to other servers.         
 Obviously truer for 3-user sites than for 30-user, and probably wholly         
 untrue for 300-user sites.
