To allow only certain posters to approve articles, you can employ the
$user variable in the nnrpd filter (if it is set), or examine
NNTP-Posting-Host: or X-Trace: to restrict use of the Approved: header
to certain hosts.

[The INN 2.4 branch has a new readers.conf option to accomplish pretty
much the same thing, but it is still expermental and subject to change.]

Another possibility would be to use rnews for final injection just
like in the nnrpd SPOOL option.
