Ah, okay.  I didn't realize it was intentional.

I don't see anything wrong with what you have (although I wouldn't use the
ME feed entry as it tends to be confusing).  I assume that the article was
posted to a group that matches the feed pattern you have for your outgoing
best feed?

Have you checked news.notice and seen if innfeed is having any trouble

Note that because you're using innfeed, you won't see any sort of outgoing
batch show up in the outgoing directory; innfeed will instead send out the
article immediately.
