in order to improve the leafnode package (see pkg/13830),
I have some questions:

- Remembering some emails on tech-pkg, I will undo the patch
  which modifies /etc/leafnode to ${PREFIX}/etc/leafnode.
  Is /etc/leafnode the desired location for the configuration

- How can I put /etc/leafnode/config.example into the PLIST?
  (I think that this file should be uninstalled. The "real"
   config file shouldn't.)

- The package will not delete the spool directory during
  pkg_delete but instead display a message indicating that
  the contents of /var/spool/news can be removed manually.
  Is this acceptable?

- With which uid/gid should the news server run? At the
  moment, it runs as news:news. Should it be uucp:daemon,
  news:daemon, or something like that?
