The purpose of this newsgroup is to give the community a place to discuss InterNetNews, or INN, the news transport system. The newsgroup news.software.b has been where most the discussion of INN has taken place up to this point. As INN becomes installed at more and more Internet connected sites, the level of questions, answers, and general discussion about it is increasing. News.software.b has been, for the most part, where B news and C news discussions have taken place while news.software.nntp as been used for NNTP software related discussions. INN is a complete Usenet system. It provides for both NNTP transport and UUCP support integrated into a single package. As such, the discussions should to be focused in a single group instead of having to be constantly split between the two existing groups. The creation of news.software.inn also benefits n.s.b and n.s.nntp in that those groups continue to serve the same areas of interest they did prior to INN's release.
