Thread: NOTICE: Discontinuation of the NNTP interface

    Default NOTICE: Discontinuation of the NNTP interface

    Is this true?

    On June 19th, the NNTP interface integration to this community will
    be discontinued and the NNTP servers taken offline. This is part of
    the SUSE (openSUSE) split from Micro Focus. The web interface will
    continue without interruption.

    Yes, that is true.

    There is a community effort underway to replace it, but it won't be ready
    in time by the 19th - but the way the gateway between the two systems
    works, we'll be able to preserve message history very easily.

    Anyway, I'm glad there are people working on it because I find the webinterface absolute horrible to get a quick overview of new posts, not to mention it's soooo slow. (small rant, sorry)

    Yes, of course we'll post an announcement, but it will take some time to replace it.
