MODERATORS(5)							 MODERATORS(5)

NAME
       moderators - mail addresses for moderated Usenet newsgroups

DESCRIPTION
       The	GetModeratorAddress(3)	    routine	reads	  the	  file
       /var/spool/news/data/moderators to determine how to reach the moderator
       of  a  newsgroup.   This	 is  used by inews(1) when an unapproved local
       posting is made to a moderated newsgroup.

       The file is read until a match is found.	 Blank lines and lines	start‐
       ing  with  a  number  sign (``#'') are ignored.	All other lines should
       consist of two fields separated by a colon.

       The first field is a wildmat(3)-style pattern.  If it matches the  name
       of  the newsgroup, then the second field is taken to be a format string
       for sprintf(3).	This string should have	 at  most  one	%s  parameter,
       which  will be given the name of the newsgroup with periods transliter‐
       ated to dashes.

       Here is a sample file:
	      foo.important:announce-request@foo.com
	      foo.*:%s@mailer.foo.com
	      gnu.*:%s@prep.ai.mit.edu
	      *:%s@uunet.uu.net
       Using the above file, postings to the moderated newsgroup in  the  left
       column will be sent to the address shown in the right column:
	      foo.important	  announce-request@foo.com
	      foo.x.announce	  foo-x-announce@mailer.foo.com
	      gnu.emacs.sources	  gnu-emacs-sources@prep.ai.mit.edu
	      comp.sources.unix	  comp-sources-unix@uunet.uu.net
