Subject: (1.10) Can I run NNTP with INN?

There's a confusion here. NNTP is a protocol, defined in RFC 977. There
is also an implementation of the protocol, NNTP1.5, that many people call
NNTP. When there was only one implementation of the protocol, that was
okay, but now that there are other implementations (for example, INN) it
is getting confusing. It would be as if "sendmail" were named "smtp."
Please try to be clear -- do you mean the NNTP protocol, or the NNTP
reference implementation currently maintained by Stan Barber?
