I wanted to run a news server again, but the thought
of configuring INN again made my teeth itch. So I
wrote my own server, using 3977 as my guide. I think
it conforms, though I haven't gone over it with
a comb checking against all the "MUST"s in the rfc.
At any rate, 3977 is currently a proposed standard.
It would be nice to get that moving along to draft
status and further. If nothing else, I would have
a bigger club to wield against the slrn maintainer.
Since multiple implementations are wanted to move
from proposed to draft, I thought I should let someone
know that I have a completely independent implementation
of 3977. Where to go from here?
As a complete aside, I have some ideas on automatic
feed management, which shouldn't need too many
changes in the protocol, and none that would be
incompatible with it as it stands.
