The ausadmin project is designed to automate the maintenance of USENET newsgroup hierarchies (such as aus.*) and provide end-users with useful online information regarding all the newsgroups in the hierarchy as well as proposals (Request For Discussion and Call For Votes). It consists of a software package and a Web site package. The software implements Perl classes which maintain data structures representing existing newsgroups and proposals for new newsgroups, and the Web site is mostly dynamically generated by Perl CGI and PHP code which reads the data structures mentioned above. The Web site is intended to provide the user with as much information as possible about the newsgroups which are under management.
The WaMCom project tries to create versions of Mozilla that are more stable and correct than official Mozilla milestones. In order to achieve that, stable Mozilla releases are extended with backported correctness fixes from the ongoing Mozilla development. In addition, it contains some selected enhancements not yet available in the official Mozilla project, mostly in the areas of security and cryptography. Examples are APOP authentication for POP3 mail, SMTP/SSL, and support for crypto.signText().
YAJNGI (Yet Another Java NewsGroup Inspector) is a client-side service that allows you to keep tabs on a set of newsgroups without having to read constantly. You will be alerted only when the configuration finds your match. YAJNGI inspects a set of Usenet newsgroups using a perfect keyword, a regexp, or any phrases that you choose. It is multi-threaded and permits a different scan interval and actions for each group. It could be used to monitor newsgroups for your name, product, your favorite arguments, for downloading your favorite newest pictures or binary files, or any other topic of interest.
