Replace front page with something INN-focused


INN (InterNetNews), originally written by Rich Salz, is an extremely flexible and configurable Usenet / netnews news server. Netnews is a set of protocols for exchanging messages between a decentralized network of news servers. News articles are organized into newsgroups, which are themselves organized into hierarchies. Each individual news server stores locally all articles it has received for a given newsgroup, making access to stored articles extremely fast. Netnews does not require any central server; instead, each news server passes along articles it receives to all of the news servers it peers with, those servers pass the articles along to their peers, and so on, resulting in "flood fill" propagation of news articles.

This site is the coordination site for INN development, used for source code browsing and bug tracking. Also see:
