#51 fixed Support Injection-Info eagle eagle

nnrpd should fill out Injection-Info as specified in the current USEFOR draft to supplement the current trace headers. Eventually, it should replace all of them (NNTP-Posting-Host, NNTP-Posting-Date, X-Trace, X-Complaints-To).

#105 wontfix Reply codes other than x9x used for private extensions XBATCH and XGTITLE eagle Julien ÉLIE

RFC 3977, section 3.2:

Response codes not specified in this standard MAY be used for any installation-specific additional commands also not specified. These SHOULD be chosen to fit the pattern of x9x specified above.

INN uses quite a few response codes that do not fit this pattern for various extensions. XBATCH and XGTITLE should have used response codes in the x9x range.

Impact: Additional ambiguity over the meaning of reply codes, as those reply codes could later be standardized as the reply codes for other commands.

For XGTITLE and probably XBATCH, there is no way to fix this now. Changing the reply codes would break all existing implementations.

#96 fixed Remove crosspost backend program eagle Julien ÉLIE

The crosspost backend program has not been installed since INN 2.3.0; it does not work any longer, even with traditional spool, because the storage manager code does not have access to the "DoLinks" (-L) flag setting of innd.

According to Russ Allbery in an inn-workers posting, "the idea is that with a tradspool spool, you can offload the process of creating symlinks to a separate process and do a bit more work in parallel. However, at this point, anyone who cares a lot about performance is probably using a different storage backend for most of their groups. At this point, I think we can just delete it."

The program still existed in the source tree in case someone would want to clean it up and make it useable again. It does not seem to be worthwile.
