Summary: The InterNetNews (INN) system, an Usenet news server
Description: 
INN (InterNetNews) is a complete system for serving Usenet news and/or
private newsfeeds.  INN includes innd, an NNTP (NetNews Transport
Protocol) server, and nnrpd, a newsreader that is spawned for each client.
Both innd and nnrpd vary slightly from the NNTP protocol, but not in ways
that are easily noticed.

Install the inn package if you need a complete system for serving and
reading Usenet news.  You may also need to install inn-devel, if you are
going to use a separate program which interfaces to INN, like newsgate or
tin.
