sn is a small news system for small sites serving perhaps a few
dozen newsgroups, and with a slow connection to the internet.
It is similar to leafnode (, by Arnt Gulbrandsen).
The target user is a home or SOHO with a single modem connection
to the Internet, maybe running IP masq or similar, and serving a
few workstations.
