Leafnode is an NNTP proxy suitable for small sites:
1. Leafnode relies on hard-link counts, so current implementation of hlinks
on FAT32 breaks it. News spool has to be on NTFS, and it seems this will be
an NT/2K/XP only package.
2. Leafnode requires existence of "news" user and "news" group at runtime.
It also requires existence of "root" user with UID 0 at build stage
(specifically during 'make install'). These will result in some editing of
/etc/group and /etc/passwd files.
3. Leafnode requires a superserver to function properly. I intend to limit
it to xinetd to keep things simple in README, postinstall, patches, etc.
though it can later be reverted to inetd.
Are these issues/restrictions tolerable for a Cygwin package?
