I have added access control lists for newsgroups in INN. It depends on
my own user handling using Berkeley DB 4. I also wrote a Perl module,
News::INNAdmin and a CGI script, NAF, to make it easier to handle.
You can hand off responsibility ALCs for separate newsgroups to
special users, so you won't have to change all access rights yourself.

Also included is From rewriting based on authentication, turned on by
inspired by nnrpdauthsender.
NOTE WELL that all this is in active development and that the

The News Administrator's Friend CGI and the News::INNAdmin Perl
