Re: get-news.inn script in suck-3.3.2-1 package...

I hate to follow up to myself but here we go anyway:

Robert Yetman, the maintainer of the original suck distribution, gave me
the hint to check '/etc/news/newsfeeds' for the flags 'Wf'. It turned out
that the flag 'f' which adds the article files to be uploaded with their
full pathname to '/var/spool/news/.outgoing/the.remote.site'. Replacing it
with 'n' resulted in adding the pathname relative to the news spool
directory and the script 'get-news.inn' now works as devised. :-)

Looks like the INN package maintainer and the suck package maintainer
should have a talk with each other, isn't it?
