I still do not understand.
Section 184.108.40.206 of RFC 3977 clearly states for GROUP:
The successful selection response will return the article numbers of
the first and last articles in the group at the moment of selection
(these numbers are referred to as the "reported low water mark" and
the "reported high water mark") and an estimate of the number of
articles in the group currently available.
When a valid group is selected by means of this command, the
currently selected newsgroup MUST be set to that group, and the
current article number MUST be set to the first article in the group
(this applies even if the group is already the currently selected
The first article in the group is LWM.
So in fact, you say that RFC 3977 is to be amended so that LWM is the
lowest valid article number? But what for reinstatement?
Otherwise, the notion of "first article" is wrong in RFC 3977 and the
paragraph should be amended.
I am more and more confused...
