Summary: The InterNetNews (INN) system, an Usenet news server.
INN (InterNetNews) is a complete system for serving Usenet news and/or
private newsfeeds.  INN includes innd, an NNTP (NetNews Transport
Protocol) server, and nnrpd, a newsreader that is spawned for each
client.  Both innd and nnrpd vary slightly from the NNTP protocol, but
not in ways that are easily noticed.

Install the inn package if you need a complete system for serving and
reading Usenet news.  You may also need to install inn-devel, if you
are going to use a separate program which interfaces to INN, like
newsgate or tin.

* Mon Mar 10 1997 Christian 'Dr. Disk' Hechelmann <>
  - changed devel package description to include tin.
  - the devel package missed libinn.h
  - moved libinn.3 man-page to the devel package
  - moved changelog up
  - in %post some echo statements were messed up. if we put the redirection
    staements in a different line than the echo command we really should use
    a backslash to thell the shell :-)
  - in %install a chmod line referenced the same directory twice.
  - changed inn-1.5.1-redhat.patch: The patch for news.daily had a side effect.
    as EXPIREOVERFLAGS was set to '-a', expireover would break if there were
    articles to be removed, as '-a' can't be used if '-z' is specified...
    Now there is a separate 'eval expireover -a' after the first eval. Dirty
    but works.

  - Fixed most of the misc permissions/ownership stuff that inncheck
    complained about.
* Wed Feb 19 1997 Erik Troan <>
  - Incorporated changes from <> 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
