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 (2.1.2-13) 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
* Add dependendy on cron | cron-daemon, since that's how lyskomd is
* debian/rules: Add build-indep and build-arch targets.
