Description

In discussion in news.software.nntp a while back, some people wanted a way to tell INN to honor all newgroup messages for a hierarchy such as alt.*, but ignore newgroup messages for existing groups that change the moderation status.

Attached is a patch that implements this via a new updategroup parameter in control.ctl, although I'm not sure that's the right approach. (The parameters right now are names of control messages.) A better approach may be another keyword besides doit or verify, but that also gets into a bit of combinatorial explosion.
