Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9680
rnews doesn't retry batch if server returns "436 Retry later" in response to "ihave"
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
If the NNTP server returns code 436 to rnews in response to an "article"
command, rnews correctly concludes that the batch needs to be retried
later. However, it does *not* do this if the 436 code is returned in
response to the "ihave" command, and this could cause articles to be lost.
I'm going to attach a patch which fixes this. This patch should be
submitted back to the INN maintainers.
