sysnews - program to display system news…  more info»


As described in the README, this program should be added to the shell rc
files of users who want to see news (or added globally). This is not done
automatically by this package; you should do it manually.

This package installs a cron job that deletes news articles after 30 days.
It never deletes files named WELCOME, POLICY, or NEWUSERS.

Past users of this package should note that you should put news items in
the shiny new, FHS-compliant directory, /var/lib/sysnews/, instead of the
old directory, /var/news/. If you find this annoying, I suggest a symlink.
