A text-only version of that page can also be retrieved for a control access file, PGP keys and a checkgroups. Full files are also available.
# # The control.* hierarchy is reserved by RFC 5536 and MUST NOT be used # for regular newsgroups. It is used by some news implementations, such # as INN, as a local, special hierarchy that shows all control messages # posted to any group. #
