Some additional comments by one of the authors/maintainers of leafnode(?).
From The Answer Guy on Mon, 14 Dec 1998
I have a question in the "Answer Guy's" inbox regarding multi-feed leaf netnews. I don't remember which package my querent was using (leafnode, suck?, ???) but his question regarded whether it's possible using any of these packages to download news from multiple sites and upload/ feed them back selectively).
It is possible with suck/INN, of course. (Everything is possible with this combination, I suppose .
It is also possible with leafnode, starting from 1.7.
The config file should look like this:
server = news.a.org supplement = news.b.com expire = 14 # expire messages after that many days create_all_links = no # optional, saves disk space
Leafnode should be able to figure out everything else on its own.
If you need usernames and passwords for servers, it becomes a bit more complicated, but leafnode can handle this as well:
server = news.a.org username = user_at_a password = password_at_a supplement = news.b.com username = user_at_b password = password_at_b expire = 14 create_all_links = no
