S-news is a simple news server for hosts with one or two users.  It is intened
to supply spool and offline news reading for a configured selection of
newsgroups.  S-news does the minimum required to maintain a conventional news
spool and makes use of suck for news transport.
It provdes a NNTP service and /var/spool/news for local news readers.
It supports any number of incoming news feeds via NNTP either by IHAVE or
Outgoing news feeds are made from locally posted articles and reposted remotly
by rpost(1).
It expires articles by how long they have been in the spool.
It has NNTP access configuration to allow and deny read, post and transfer
access to remote hosts.
It is very light weight and relatively easy to configure.
