Log Message:
Update "inn" package to version 2.3.3. Changes since version 2.3.2:
- pgpverify now supports using GnuPG to check signatures (rather than
  PGP) without the pgpgpg wrapper.  GnuPG can check both old-style RSA
  signatures and new OpenPGP signatures and is recommended over PGP 2.6.
  If you have GnuPG installed, pgpverify will use it rather than PGP,
  which means that you may have to create a new key ring for GnuPG to
  use to verify signatures if you were previously using PGP.
- An item that was noted in NEWS below but was inadvertently left out of
  nnrpd has actually been added this time:  users can no longer post
  articles containing Approved: headers to moderated groups by default;
  they must be specifically given that permission with the access:
  parameter in readers.conf.  See the man page for more details.
- Two bugs in repacking overview index files and a reliability bug with
  writing overview data were all fixed in the tradindexed overview
  method, hopefully making it somewhat more reliable, particularly for
- If exists in the INN binary directory, it will be run
  with the start or stop argument whenever is run.  This is
  available as a hook for local startup and shutdown code.
- The default history table hash sizes were increased because a
  too-small value can cause serious performance problems (whereas a
  too-large hash just wastes a bit of disk space).
- The sample control.ctl file has been extensively updated.
- Wildmat exclusions (@ and !) should now work properly in storage.conf
  newsgroup patterns.
- The implementation of the -w flag for expireover was fixed;
  previously, the value given to -w to change expireover's notion of the
  current time was scaled by too much.
- Various other more minor bug fixes, standards compliance fixes, and
  documentation improvements.
