leafnode vs NewsCache

I believe leafnode is unmaintained. 

I'd suggest that NewsCache is a better choice. If you recall, we rejected
the old version because of bugs ( ie a big memory leak ) and limitations (
no support for authentication ). Both of these issues have been addressed
in more recent releases. On the other hand, leafnode has some design
problems ( it is difficult for root to set a policy as to how much of what
groups it should download ) 

I've already made an RPM of NewsCache.

btw, I can't get to the "experimental" section since I don't have an
account on belegost.

I have RPMs of NewsCache , webtk, and TkRat. You can get them from


you may want to just download them using lynx + the shell account.
