Unidel          Unix Citadel-like BBS                   Source included

[I'm simply including the front end of the release notice from its
posting to alt.sources last year. - gww]

Archive-name: Unidel/part01

If I keep saying I'll wait until I get this cleaner before I post it,
it may never get posted.  And prompted by yet another thread of "Where
can I get a UNIX BBS with UseNet news?" I figured more fuel for the
fires can't hurt :-).  What we have is this:

     * UseNet news reader
     * UseNet/UNIX/Internet mail reader (w/multiple mail areas)
     * Looks like a Citadel room-based BBS system
     * Secure shell (controlled access to external programs, uses rsh)
     * External editors, file-transfer, chat/talk, CB
     * Newsgroup and file permissions (r, r/w, hidden and invite-only)
     * Freely-redistributable
     * Has compiled once or twice each on SVR2 (Microport), SVR3,
       SunOS 4.1 and UHC SVR4
     * Can be used with CNews, BNews, SMail, Deliver, talk, rz/sz,
       kermit, vi, emacs and more
     * still contains a few, uh, unnecessary, uh, features  yea that's it.


  You can play with it and download the source from Bitsko's Bar &
Grill BBS, +1 801 566 6283 (Telebit), login 'guest', type RETURN for
password.  Source and discussion is in the Unidel room.
