Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.6nb3, Package name: newsx-1.6nb3, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

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

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.

Newsx is also well suited for large spools with normal feeds, being used for
pulling newsgroups from specific NNTP servers that are not distributed in the
usual manner. Since newsx obeys the normal news spool configuration file and
requires little or no specific configuration, the administrative burden should
be minimized.

Log message:
Sort PLIST files.

Unsorted entries in PLIST files have generated a pkglint warning for at
least 12 years. Somewhat more recently, pkglint has learned to sort
PLIST files automatically. Since pkglint 5.4.23, the sorting is only
done in obvious, simple cases. These have been applied by running:

  pkglint -Cnone,PLIST -Wnone,plist-sort -r -F
