The ausadmin project is designed to automate the maintenance of USENET newsgroup hierarchies (such as aus.*) and provide end-users with useful online information regarding all the newsgroups in the hierarchy as well as proposals (Request For Discussion and Call For Votes). It consists of a software package and a Web site package. The software implements Perl classes which maintain data structures representing existing newsgroups and proposals for new newsgroups, and the Web site is mostly dynamically generated by Perl CGI and PHP code which reads the data structures mentioned above. The Web site is intended to provide the user with as much information as possible about the newsgroups which are under management.

Release Notes: Some minor improvements were made. Most changes are in the calculating of newsgroup vote states from the available information. A state config file was added to all votes, then dropped when it was found to be causing more problems than it fixed. So right now the system calculates the state by looking for which of the many config files exist. Some other cleanups were made.
No changes have been submitted for this release.
