Here is an overview of the issue:
        Key: JAMES-63
    Summary: Assorted NNTP Protocol Bugs
       Type: Bug

     Status: Closed
 Resolution: FIXED

    Project: James
             NNTPServer & Repository

   Reporter: Peter M. Goldstein

There are a bunch of outstanding NNTP protocol bugs.

1. Use of STAT, ARTICLE, HEAD, or BODY with an article number argument does 
not properly set the current article pointer to the current value.

2. For empty groups the current article pointer is set to 0 rather than being 
left invalid when the LISTGROUP or GROUP commands are used.  This is contrary 
to RFC 2980.

3. For the NEWNEWS or NEWNEWSGROUP commands an absent or ill-formed date 
parameter is improperly handled.  A response indicating data will be sent is 
delivered to the client, and then a NPE is generated, resulting in a close of 
the connection.  Instead, the server should return a 501 syntax error

4. OVER/XOVER is provided by the server, but the LIST OVERVIEW.FMT is not 
supported, contrary to the strong recommendations of RFC 2980

I've got fixes for all of these - am waiting for the current discussion of 
server architecture to resolve before I post them.
