NNTP status

Just a quick note about this, for those who are curious. We are still working on the next draft of the NNTP standard. We almost were ready to publish, including a specification for STARTTLS and SASL, but some good issues came up at the last minute, and we're currently working on revising how the new extension mechanism will work to deal with those issues. But most of the text is done, and the remaining changes should be minimal.

I hate to predict any timeframe given what's happened so far, but I have hope that a few more months will do it. (Of course, that means I have to find time to read and comment on all of the messages and direct traffic on the mailing list....)
