I'm using leafnode,, for nntp (usenet) 
reading/posting.  I would like to have some newsgroups as e-mail, as so:

6.1. Feeding Usenet news to email

In CNews, this is trivially done by adding one line to the sys file, 
defining a new outgoing feed listing all the relevant groups and 

I cannot find cnews in aptitude, and further searching on it makes me 
think that it's defunct.  (It's usenet, after all.)

Is there a package out there, which I'm just not finding, which sends 
usenet to e-mail?  This all just on my machine, no outside connections 
(only leafnode is actually sending/receiving messages).
