} INN's return codes for service temporarily unavailable currently are not

} right and INN is wrong.

Could you point where it is?

btw, if innd is set up not to allow readers, we've got;

# telnet localhost nntp
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
200 server InterNetNews server INN 2.3.0 (20000711 CVS prerelease) ready
mode reader
500 Syntax error or bad command

This is not compliant that draft also, and I think this
needs to be fixed to return 502.
