That is excellent news - thank you for letting me know!

Just one question: Where do you run gate_news?

My ISP has copied gate_news to /etc/cron.hourly so that cron can run it
each hour. There are no errors in the cron logs, no output at all,
actually, which should be good news. However it is not picking up messages
from the newsgroup - I haven't had it pick up one yet.

I'm hoping that the global python parameters are set so that it can pick
up the correct home directory - I'd have expected errors if it didn't.

My thought had been to provide a wrapper to put in /etc/cron.hourly that
cd's to the mailman home directory and runs gate_news from there. Is that
likely to help?
