NAME

       snnewgroup - create a new sn newsgroup

SYNOPSIS

       snnewgroup newsgroup [server] [port]

DESCRIPTION

       snnewgroup  creates  newsgroup  assigning it an upstream NNTP server of
       server:port.  If port is not specified, defaults to 119.  If server  is
       also  not specified, newsgroup is created as a local group which is fed
       only by articles POSTed to it.

       You will need to be root or own  /var/spool/sn  in  order  to  add  new
       groups.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       SNROOT If  this  is set and is not empty, the value is used in place of
              /var/spool/sn, the default news spool directory.

FILES CREATED

       /var/spool/sn/newsgroup
              Directory where articles will be stored.

       /var/spool/sn/newsgroup/.created
              Empty file for the newsgroup creation time.

       /var/spool/sn/newsgroup/.serial
              Where snget gets its idea of the new starting serial number  for
              newsgroup on server server:port.  The value is initialized to 0.

       /var/spool/sn/newsgroup/.outgoing
              If    server    is    specified,    is    a    symlink    to
              /var/spool/sn/.outgoing/server:port,   which   is  a  directory,
              created if  it  does  not  already  exist.   If  server  is  not
              specified,  no  file  /var/spool/sn/newsgroup/.outgoing  will be
              created.  See also snsend.
