motd.news - Message of the day information for readers
This file, found in pathetc/motd.news, contains local information for
news readers in a free-form format. The entire file is returned
verbatim to any client that issues the LIST MOTD command. This might
be used for new information, notification of upcoming downtime, or
Make sure that the motd.news file is encoded in UTF-8. It should also
be "dot-stuffed", that is to say that a line beginning with a dot
should have that dot doubled.
Be aware that use of the LIST MOTD command is not widespread and most
news clients will never ask for this file.
If this file is missing, it is not an error. The server will just send
the client the appropriate response for an unmaintained motd.news file.
