newsflag - change active-file flag for newsgroup
/usr/lib/news/maint/newsflag newsgroup newval
Newsflag sets the fourth field of newsgroup’s entry in the active file
(see newsdb(5)) to newval, doing proper locking to ensure safe
modification of the file. For example, to change newsgroup x.y.z from
unmoderated to moderated:
newsflag x.y.z m
The effect is purely local; no control message (to propagate the change
to other machines) is sent.
