	This is a package for INN version 1.7.2 with Insync 1.1d
	patches.  While INN 2.x is the latest and greatest, it has
	added considerable bloat that is either unnecessary for a
	small (leaf) site, or even gets in the way, and overall
	appears to be less stable.


	Install INN 2.3, fight with it, then sit back and remember how
	in ancient times things were simpler.

	Get package from
	and install.

	From 2.x the package adds the script to make 1.7.2
	stoppable in a proper way, and the 'mailpost' script (slightly
	patched) for setting up a mail2news gateway.

	This is my first package submission.  ;)
