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.

    2012-11-15 - Magnus Holmgren <> lyskom-server (2.1.2-13) unstable; urgency=low * New maintainer. * Rename debian/lyskom-server.copyright debian/copyright as a source package should have a debian/copyright file. * Create /var/run/lyskom-server in the init script instead of shipping it with the package (Closes: #689898). Thanks Thomas Goirand. * Drop the $startonboot variable, which is rather pointless since lyskomd is actually started via cron, is disabled there by default, and will start regardless of $startonboot because the status file won't exist. * Fix LSB header in the init script: add $remote_fs and move $local_fs to Required-Start/Required-Stop; delete commas. * Add dependency on rsyslog | system-log-daemon, since the LSB header indicates that lyskomd requires a syslog facility. * Rework and simplify lyskom-server.postinst: * Use dpkg-statoverride to set ownership of data and log directories. * Don't nullify errors; the package should be left in an unconfigured state in such cases. Remove sanity checks. * Simply call adduser with --quiet instead of checking whether the lyskom user already exists. * Set stricter modes on the directories. * Don't delete /var/run/lyskom-server/status in the init script. It is created by komrunning when shutting down lyskomd to keep updateLysKOM from starting lyskomd again. * lyskom-server.postrm: As recommended by policy, don't delete log files until on purge. Also, simply rm -rf /var/lib/lyskom-server /var/log/lyskom-server. * Add dependendy on cron | cron-daemon, since that's how lyskomd is started. * debian/rules: Add build-indep and build-arch targets.
