[kde] Knode no longer supported!




Yes, OK, I realise it has been years since there has been any semblance
of support for it but now it's official - sort of.

The following bug has been around since the end of the last millennium
and my last comment was made three years ago but now it has been
"resolved" by declaring knode unmaintained.

The bit that made me chuckle was the advice for knode users to switch
to kmail. Now it has been a while since I have used kmail (not long
after the introduction of kmail2 decided me to look elsewhere) but I did
a check and can see no evidence that NNTP functionality has been added
since my departure. Mind you, my eyesight isn't what it was so perhaps
I missed something.

I see from other knode topics that "pan" has been recommended as a
replacement for NNTP-users and I'd go along with that for those who
don't want to use e-mail with NNTP. Otherwise, Claws is the most
reliable mail+NNTP system I've used.
