jamnntpd issues, smapinntpd
Hello, Tommi!

Looks like smapi version is the logical continuation of the project, though
could have been done as a build option, link with JAMLIB or SMAPI. Hope can use
this echo conference for SmapiNNTPd related stuff.

Here's my list of TODO ;-)

* Socket reuse (just one line fix, otherwise you need to wait a few mins after

* Message-id passed in brackets (some NNTP clients use message-id to fetch
head/body/article instead of the article number, e.g. lynx text-mode browser
works with nttp:// URL scheme).

* Add encoding support in subjects (some NNTP clients even use a different
encoding in subject than the body itself, e.g. Thunderbird will always use utf8
in subjects (Subject: =?UTF-8?Q) even though the body encoding is 8 bit)

* Add utf8 support for posting.

* Maybe get rid of charset files completely, just compile with libiconv or ICU.

* Having been integrated with Husky project, specifically with SMAPI library,
so why not using the fidoconf to read out groups.

Best Regards, Nil
