Binary package “newsx” in ubuntu hardy

An NNTP client for posting and fetching news

 NewsX is an NNTP client for Unix. It will connect to a remote NNTP server
 and post outgoing articles batched by the news system, as well as fetch
 incoming articles.
 It provides the NNTP capabilities required for small local news spools on
 installations with NNTP access only through limited ISP accounts. It works
 well via a dialup SLIP/PPP connection.
 It seems to be faster than using suck over a modem link.
