Hello, Katsuhiro Kondou.

I'm sorry for posting directly, but I'm so confused about my INN.

I started to use INN-2.3.1 on BSDI 4.0 box.
I have an old news spool, and I don't want to loose old acticles.
But old articles are not visible for readers, as soon as they are not listed
in overview database
(inn.conf - ovmethod:   tradindexed).

Previous release of expireover  (inn-2.2) had option -a to initialize
overview database according the current state of spool. But now it hasn't
such option.

Question: how can I add into overview database information about existing
articles (not reseived by innd normally) ?
