pgpmoose is a program that cancels invald messages from moderated Usenet groups. All messages to a specific group are assumed to have a PGP signature added at injection by the newsgroup moderator; if no such signature exists, or if the signature is invalid for the stated moderator of the group, then the message is assumed to be invalid. This program takes care of actually issuing the cancels for those messages.

Papercut is a multi-threaded NNTP server written in Python. Its main objective is to integrate existing Web-based message board software (Phorum is one of the supported ones) with a Usenet front-end. However, its extensibility enables developers to write their own containers for the storage of the Usenet articles (messages). That means that the code is extensible enough that you could write new containers to integrate the news server with other Web message board projects or even other ways to store the messages.

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.

Net_NNTP is a PHP/PEAR library for communication with NNTP servers. Net_NNTP handles connection and protocol-level commands (RFC977), including many non-standard commands (RFC2980), via a user-friendly API which hides the actual NNTP commands/syntax. Some knowledge about NNTP and general knowledge about email and MIME is required, since parsing of content and headers is left up to the user. Net_NNTP allows advanced users direct usage of NNTP commands via the separate protocol implementation. Net_NNTP includes a fully-functional NNTP to HTML gateway demo application.
