Binary package “cnews” in ubuntu intrepid
simple news server for Usenet news
C News is a light weight news server suitable for small feeds.
C News is very useful for keeping some Usenet groups on a local system and
minimizing the time you need to stay connected to the internet.
The nntp package is needed for NNTP support.
You need the non-free ncompress package only if you want to exchange
news batches with sites where uncompress isn't gunzip.
