Well, it's a list about Majordomo development. That would point to a very
large probability that it's run by Majordomo software. So the evidence
would tend to suggest that requests would be answered at

I recently saw the following Procmail/formail solution. I can't use it
because I don't run an NNTP server; I wish there was a lightweight one that
was better suited to this kind of thing. There was work on the nndb
backend to the Gnus newsreader that would serve personal mail via a small,
private, authenticated NNTP server but it didn't get very far.
Note that a more Majordomo-ish method of implementing the following would
be to stick a pipe to the script in the outgoing alias.

Here is what we did. If anyone can see problems or suggest
improvements to this, please let me know.
Create the moderated group `group.foo' in the news server, with the
mailing list `email@example.com' as moderator.
Add `foo-news' as subscriber to the `foo' list.
foo-news: "|exec /pack/dnews/mail2news group.foo"
The mail2news script looks like this:
( $FORMAIL -I "Newsgroups: $NEWSGROUPS" \
-a "Approved: firstname.lastname@example.org" \
-R "From " "X-Mail-From: " \
-R "Received:" "X-Mail-Received:" \
-R "Path:" "X-Mail-Path:" \
-I "Path: slist" \
| $INEWS ) || exit 42
We use the minimal inews that is distributed together with lynx.
