Hi, I've been scouring the inn-workers archives for an answer
but only came up with one cryptic suggestion:

I searched elsewhere on the net for renaming instructions, in
the 2.x FAQ and in the Managing Usenet book but this seems
to be a seldom task for news admins. Help...
INN server situation: Standalone INN 2.3.1 server [Solaris 5.7]
using tradspool, whose current purpose is to act as an archive
for Listproc lists injected through mail2news. There are no feeds
in or out, and only a few postable "local" groups. Occasionally
the Listproc mailing list names are changed with a corresponding
need to change the newsgroup name.
My situation: couple of months of INN experience (who till now
missed this opportunity in 13 years of UNIX admin fun), and not
at all sure how to "recreate overview data".
Could I get a detailed procedure?
