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.
