moderators - mail addresses for moderated Usenet newsgroups


   The  GetModeratorAddress(3) routine reads the file /etc/news/moderators
   to determine how to reach the moderator of a newsgroup.  This  is  used
   by  inews(1)  when  an  unapproved local posting is made to a moderated

   The file is read until  a  match  is  found.   Blank  lines  and  lines
   starting  with  a  number  sign  (``#'')  are ignored.  All other lines
   should consist of two fields separated by a colon.

   The first field is a wildmat(3)-style pattern.  If it matches the  name
   of  the newsgroup, then the second field is taken to be a format string
   for sprintf(3).  This string should have  at  most  one  %s  parameter,
   which   will   be   given  the  name  of  the  newsgroup  with  periods
   transliterated to dashes.

   Here is a sample file:

   Using the above file, postings to the moderated newsgroup in  the  left
   column will be sent to the address shown in the right column:
