Bionet Checkgroups message

This article provides a script to ensure that your site carries
all of the "approved" bionet newsgroups. It should be used by the
local Usenet administrator to verify that all of the standard
bionet groups are in the "active" file or the equivalent thereof
on the local system. If you do not receive all of the bionet
groups or you are not sure whether or not you do, you should
ask your Usenet administrator to execute this checkgroups
message.

NOTE: the moderated bionet newsgroups follow the convention that
articles can be delivered to the moderator by forming an address
consisting of the newsgroup name with the dots changed to dashes
@net.bio.net (i.e., bionet.software.sources articles go to
bionet-software-sources at net.bio.net.) If you run INN, you can
add "bionet.*:%s at net.bio.net" to /usr/lib/news/moderators to
achieve the same effect.

---------------------- For Usenet Administrators ---------------------

Recent versions of news support a "checkgroups" control message that
can be used to help keep your active file in sync with the "standard"
bionet groups.  What follows is a skeleton checkgroups control message
that you can customize and run locally to check your active file.

The following should be extracted and then passed directly to your
checkgroups script on standard input.   It can also be posted locally,
with a distribution set to keep it internal to your local
organization.  This is NOT the preferred method of operation, however,
as some distributions "leak" to a wider distribution of machines.

Also note that versions of C news prior to the performance release of
July 1992 do NOT handle checkgroups input properly and you should not
attempt to use the checkgroups feature.  If you are running C news,
you are strongly encouraged to get and install a recent version so as
to take advantage of the checkgroups fix as well as many other
performance enhancements.
