This is wCNews 1.0.30 - a very nice news system which didn't make
its way to the aminet. (I can't imagine why...)

Some notes from the author:

     this stuff  is a modified (and partialy enhanced =:->) version of
CNews,   based   on   the   port   done   by   Frank  'Crash'  Edwards
(uunet-version, *not* the buggy one from teh AmigaLigDisks).

     It's primary   intended   to   replace  `Amiga  UUCP  Plus  1.02'
installations  -  it has been modified to comform to the `usual' Amiga
UUCP  directory  layout used by Matt Dillon and Ingo Feulner (that is:
controlfiles  like  `sys',  `active'  or  `history'  in `uulib:news/',
articles  in  `uunews:',  binaries  in  the  AmigaDOS'  search path or
`uulib:news/bin')  and  is  expected  to be run on top of Matt Dillons
UUCP  implementation  (at  least  in  terms  of configuration).  Thus,
former  CNews users will have to reorganize a bit in order to make use
out of this ...

     This version  *requires*  at  least  OS  Version  36 and has been
tested  only  on  V37.175  (official  2.0 ROMs) until now. I assume in
cases  where  this  matters,  I've  checked  for the OS version, but I
don't  make  any  guarantees. But as most programs wouldn't run anyway
if  you're  working  with  ancient  OS  versions, I think this doesn't
matter - you have been warned =:->

     In the  following,  I  refer  to  `Amiga  UUCP Plus 1.02' by Ingo
Feulner  as  `AUUCP',  to  `Amiga  UUCP'  by Matthew Dillon as `DUUCP'
(optionally  followed  by a version number, e. g. `DUUCP 1.16') and to
the  CNews-Port  done by Frank `crash' Edwards as `CNews'. I call this
stuff myself `wCNews' - no comments, please =:->

                     Differences CNews <-> wCNews
 o Configuration
   Above  all,  the  environment  (local,  then  global) is respected.
   After   environment   lookup   failed,   a   lookup  in  the  DUUCP
   configuration  file  (`S:UUConfig' or `UULIB:Config') is performed.
   Finally,  the  old  style CNews configuration stuff is executed, i.
   e. lookup in `uulib:news/CNews.config'.

 o NewsHostName
   `uulib:news/whoami'  still  has  highest  priority.  Next comes the
   `hostname'  environment  variable, then DUUCP's `NodeName' is taken
   (if  `DomainPath'  is set to `y[es]', `DomainName' will be appended
   to   the   `NodeName'  value).  If  all  fails,  your  newsname  is
   `anonymous'.

 o sys-File
   You  may  specify _exactly_ one `%s' in the sy_cmd field, this will
   be  replaced by an absolute(!) path under which the current article
   has  been  filed.  Of  course,  `<%s'  also works, this way you can
   specify  which  program  should get the article on its stdin (e. g.
   for  `site:grps/dist::lockserial  someprg  <%s'  - a stupid example
   but  you should get the idea =:->) - if you don't specify any `%s',
   in  the  example above, `lockserial' would get the article on stdin
   (same behaviour as under CNews).
   Specifying  a  sys-line  like `s:n/d::dh0:etc/bin/news/format drive
   vd0:  name  %s'  now  also  works  -  before,  at  least my version
   mis-interpreted  `dh0'  as the batchparms and got somewhat upset of
   them.
   Finally:  `site/ex1,ex2,ex3:ng/dist:flgs:'  now  excludes  not only
   `ex1' but - as documented - also `ex2' and `ex3'.

 o RFC stuff
   You may set `RFCStrictness' to `0' to `2' to  reject articles  with
   message-ids  not  conforming  to  RFC 822 and unqualified hostnames
   (e. g. `<0851 at host>' instead of `<0815 at host.do.main>).

   RFCStrictness   0    acts like original CNews
   RFCStrictness   1    enables check for ` at domain' and illegal chars
   RFCStrictness   2    enables check  for fully  qualified domain as
                        required by RFC 1036 but often ignored.

   You  may set `MaxArticleAge' to a decimal value, specifying how old
   an  article  may  be.  Articles  with a `Date:' header specifying a
   date  older  than `MaxArticleAge' days (or with dates more than one
   day in future) will be rejected.

   Both  of  the  above  features  are  inspired  by recent UNOX-CNews
   releases  but  implemented as more or less quick and dirty hacks; I
   haven't  had  the  time  to adopt (parts of) the `CNews performance
   release' from May '92 yet ...

 o `expire' now checks wheter or not the remove() system call succeeds
   and in case  it fails with  errno != ENOENT,  the article's history
   entry is copied into the new history;  this hopefully  reduces  the
   number of old files left in the news tree ...
