Bug#470134: O: newsgate -- Mail to News and News to Mail Gateway
The previous maintainer of newsgate has set the maintainer to Debian QA
without opening a wnpp bug. Therefore, I orphan this package now.
Maintaining a package requires time and skills. Please only adopt this
package if you will have enough time and attention to work on it.
If you want to be the new maintainer, please see
http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/index.html#howto-o for detailed
instructions how to adopt a package properly.

Description: Mail to News and News to Mail Gateway
This is a hodge-podge of tools to gate news. Nothing for beginners.
Assembly required. Among others things this contains:
This kit provides two programs for "linking" RFC822 Mail messages and
RFC1036 Usenet News articles. Each half of the conversion is handled by a
different program, mail2news or news2mail. A few utility programs are
With these programs and the right set of mail aliases and news sys and
active file entries, it is possible to build any set of moderated,
unmoderated, one-way, or bi-directional gateways between any set of news
and mail groups and lists that your little heart desires.
