A long time ago I started looking at mbnntp and played with using a newsgroup client to access the various echo's on my system, but unfortunately most of my work was lost with a hard drive crash on my development workstation about a year ago. Now that I'm starting to
look at things again, I'm reminded that mbnntp barely supports the
basics when it comes to NNTP commands. It doesn't implement much of
RFC 977, only AUTHINFO and XOVER (barely) from RFC 2980, and RFC 3977 wasn't even published when it was written.
My question: Is anyone doing any work on mbnntp? If I do get around
to actually reading the RFC's and attempting to get them implemented
in mbnntp, is anyone willing to look over my code to make sure I don't introduce security issues?
I've got a strong history as a SysAdmin (which includes debugging developers code), but my coding is more of a hobby. It seems that I
have to re-teach myself C every time I do work on MBSE. :-)

I started learning C to fix issues with MakeNL, and then as I got more
comfortable with it I tackled MBSE. There are still a bunch of
things I want to work on with it. The interBBS chat needs to be overhauled and upgraded to support IPv6, the BBS won't fall back to displaying the ASCII file if the ANSI file doesn't exist, etc.
There are only so many hours in a day...
I am completely out of this discussion, although I'm considering
to use MBSE in the near future; my question in this topic is:
Isn't it easier just to use Jamnntpd instead of mbnntp?
Aside from all those RFC-related issues,
JAMNNTPD functionality allows you to effectively reply TO people...
