Faced with the disuse of a local nntp server (leafnode-2), and given a need for others to access content, I stumbled across FUDforum last week. In a few hours I found that FUDforum 3.0.5 could import messages from the server.

In some cases, however, a newsgroup had missing messages. Say message 1 was there, 2 was not, and 3 was. FUDforum import of the newsgroup would halt with:

Importing #n from a.b.cCannot fetch #n: 430 No such article: n

This is a serious problem. The import should be able to ignore messages that are missing on the server.

Fortunately, in my case, I was administrator of the server, and could create dummy messages on the server side (using administrator powers and hackery) to fill the holes and proceed with import. If nntp support is at all serious, this issue needs to be corrected.
