    Thanks for that hint. I already wrote Korallenriff (also available at freshmeat) what fetches NNTP postings and saves them in a MySQL database. In WendzelNNTPd-2.0.0 I will probably add a full forums backend feature.

    nice one
    What would cause this project to be widely used is plug-able backends;

    That is the solution to the terrible web forums about these days - an NNTP interface to each one.

    The higher levels of the newsgroup hierachy can map to a particular php-phorumz type configuration.

    Along with your RSS it may help replication of ghastly forums and a new life to NNTP.

    Anwyay.... I thought I'd just share some of the ideas I'm too busy to work on.

    Great that you like it. I don't say that I will add PAM but I added it to the wishlist file that includes feature request I will possibly implement.

    Yeah, a cool NNTPd with SQL support at early stage. Yes I know this isn't feature request forum, but PAM support are welcome. :-)
