    To help NNTP users, I have quoted the above so that it can be seen in
    the suse-studio thread area. After I confirm this post makes it through
    the NNTP gateway, I will delete this on the web side (but leave it on
    the NNTP side). I hope this admin action of mine makes the thread more
    readable in the NNTP suse-studio area.
