This is a Request For Discussion concerning creating the newsgroup 
news.software.inn. 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.
