    Log Message:
    Update to version 1.11.3


    - Fetchnews did not detect timeouts while it was downloading an article
      header, which malicious upstream servers could exploit to mount
      a denial of service attack against the fetchnews client. See
      leafnode-SA-2005-02.txt.  CVE Name: CAN-2005-1911

    ### BUGFIXES
    - Bugfix sed expression in makesubst script.  (Reported by Jeff Zacharias.)

    ### CHANGES
    - texpire now tags the expired count with "" rather
      than "total:" to avoid misleading the user who assumes that "total:"
      would have to be the sum of the group counts. See also the FAQ change
      below.  SourceForge bug #1215453.
    - When debugmode and verbose mode are set, leafnode programs now print a
      warning to stdout that the user should check syslog.conf and the
      syslog output rather than the screen print for debugging and sleeps for
      three seconds.

    - Add FAQ entry to explain discrepancies between texpire group counts
      and expired articles counts.
    - Add FAQ entry to explain influence of Gnus' gnus-read-active-file
      setting on lost subscriptions, and extend stop fetchnews from
      unsubscribing FAQ.  Debian bug #307685.
    - Drop FAQ entry on license issues as some parts of leafnode are in fact
    - Drop FAQ entry on why old articles aren't posted, obsolete since
    - INSTALL and INSTALL_de have been polished.
    - Add a hint that syslog.conf must be edited to config.example.
    - leafnode(8) mentions that LIST ACTIVE keeps an existing subscription
