|Summary: Sends Usenet articles to a local news server for distribution.|
The inews program is used by some news programs (for example, inn and trn) to post Usenet news articles to local news servers. Inews reads an article from a file or standard input, adds headers, performs some consistency checks and then sends the article to the local news server specified in the inn.conf file. Install inews if you need a program for posting Usenet articles to local news servers.

Now there is a separate 'eval expireover -a' after the first eval. Dirty but works. * Wed Feb 26 1997 Erik Troan <email@example.com> - Added a /usr/bin/rnews symlink to /usr/lib/news/rnews as other programs like to use it. * Tue Feb 25 1997 Elliot Lee <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Fixed rnews path in /etc/cron.daily/inn-cron-rnews - Added overview! and crosspost lines to /etc/news/newsfeeds - Fixed nntpsend.ctl path in /usr/lib/news/bin/nntpsend, and set a saner nntpsend.ctl config file. - Added automated inn.conf 'server: ' line creation in %post - Added misc. patches from ftp.isc.org/isc/inn/unoff-patches/1.5 - Removed -lelf from config.data LIBS - Made RPM_OPT_FLAGS work. - Bug in rpm meant that putting %post after %files made it not run. Moved %post up. - Added /etc/cron.hourly/inn-cron-nntpsend to send news every hour. - Fixed most of the misc permissions/ownership stuff that inncheck complained about. * Wed Feb 19 1997 Erik Troan <email@example.com> - Incorporated changes from <firstname.lastname@example.org> which fixed some paths and restored the cron jobs which disappeared in the 1.5.1 switch. He also made the whole thing use a buildroot and added some files which were missing from the file list.
