We have INN 2.x - that should work.
Sorry about the delayed response... Playing catch-up today.
We lost our feed and our ISP won't let us do anything through
inn -- we need to use suck or something (which I don't want to
Hm, I think we have at least some of that but it would not make sense to
create an innfeed from Germany to Illinois ;-)
Anyhow, here's how I did it... By adding this to my newsfeeds file:
:/usr/bin/procmail -m /etc/news/procmailrc.news
Basically, each message gets pumped into procmail, using the specified
procmailrc file as a filter. In my case, I'm only searching certain
groups for URLs and saving them in a flat text file, so my procmailrc.news
* ^Newsgroups: (.*rec\.gardens|.*botany|.*herbs)
* ^.*\/http://[^>< ]+
* ! ? echo $MATCH | fgrep -i -f /var/spool/news/urlcache
OUTPUT=`echo $MATCH >> /var/spool/news/urlcache`
| /usr/lib/news/bin/mail2news urls
It's not perfect (because it only matches the first URL), but it's
sufficient for what I'm doing. And, as I mentioned earlier, I don't
have a newsfeed anymore anyhow, so there's really no point in cleaning
it up. :)
In your case, you could do something like:
:/usr/bin/formail -s /usr/local/bin/mhonarc -add
in your newsfeeds file (you may not even need formail), or if you want
to use a procmailrc, figure out the archive date and pump to MHonArc
Does this make any sense?
P.S. Remove the !mallorn reference in your case; that's just what
our local groups start with.
