LysKOM has a lot in common with netnews, but LysKOM is
intended for local discussions (instead of worldwide).
LysKOM consists of a server process and several client
programs. The server process maintains a data base of
persons, conferences and articles. The clients connect to
the server and let the users browse the database for
unread articles.
LysKOM is much faster than netnews - almost as fast as irc
or ICQ! - but like in netnews the articles are saved so
that you don't have to be logged in to receive the news.

lyskom-server (2.1.2-14) unstable; urgency=low
* Switch to source format 3.0 (quilt) and use dh_autoreconf.
Build-depend on texinfo because rebuild makefiles demand it.
* Let dh_installinit install /etc/default/lyskom-server.
* Update VCS URLs.
* ignore_missing_python.patch: Ignore absence of python interpreter,
only used for rebuilding documentation.
* debian.patch: Don't patch db-crypt/db/Makefile.* and don't run
distclean in that directory separately since we exclude it from
* no_bundles.patch (new): Exclude bundled libadns and liboop from
build. Use new oop_signal_new_flags() in liboop 1.0.1.
* Use dpkg-buildflags, remove redundant configure options, and send
DESTDIR to make install on the command line, as usual, instead of
through the environment.
* yyerror.patch (new): Avoid error when compiling with
* Add Italian debconf translations (Closes: #778385). Thanks to Beatrice
Torracca and the Italian localization team.
* lyskom-server.postrm: Remove hard-coded path to deluser.
* Drop dependencies on flex and bison since we don't normally regenerate
any parser code.
* Add systemd service unit, which runs lyskomd directly as a simple
daemon.  For consistency, the SysV init script now does start lyskomd
rather than just signal that it should be started.
* On initial installation, prompt for and set an initial password so
that lyskomd kan be safely started right away.
* Add missing lsb-base dependency.
* debian/rules: Don't run dh_installinfo since "make install" installs
info documents already.
* debian/rules, lyskom-server.postinst: Also install initial number.txt.
* Switch to Debhelper compat level 10.
* README.Debian: Add warning about weak security.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.8.
