NOTE: The maintainers of the INN FAQ stopped publishing in December 1997.
An important update to this topic is provided by Mib Software in the Usenet RKT for Subscribers.

Subject: (6.23) Fill different types of control messages in different directories?

half a day you can do the following:

Create the groups control.newgroup and control.cancel

ctlinnd newgroup control.newgroup
ctlinnd newgroup control.cancel

Add the following to expire.ctl:


so all control messages typically expire after 2 days, but sendsys and
newgroup messages are normally kept for 15 days.
You should also change newsfeeds appropriately to reflect the changes that
