Hi Eric,

As far as I know, there is only one news client currently implementing COMPRESS: flnews.
INN and flnews implemented that extension during the writing of the RFC.
Thanks for your work to also implement it in the Perl Net::NNTP module!

Objet : NNTP COMPRESS clients? RFC 8054 

Hey all, wondering if there's clients which support COMPRESS, yet.
It's on the TODO for tin (it reads the capability, at least).
But otherwise I'm not aware of any I haven't been able to find any,
and I couldn't find anything in the inn test suite.

Anyways, the reason I'm asking is I've prepared a patch to the
Perl Net::NNTP module and am hoping I got everything right...
I've only lightly tested it against news.gmane.org which runs inn:


I also implemented it server-side in public-inbox-nntpd[1],
which powers news.public-inbox.org, but there's a danger I'm
implementing something wrong on both ends in that case :x

Thanks for reading and all your work on inn!
