==Where to get sources==
I have hijacked this spot to communicate about the Eclipse Newsreader project known as "Salvo". This project has not yet been accepted by the Eclipse community and therefore the EPL does not apply. Until this, all IP rights belong to me, Wim Jongman (let the wiki log be my witness), and even though I am posting code to this site, this does not mean that it is EPL or will ever become EPL.

The Salvo project can be used to communicate through newsgroups or any other medium that provides a Q&A type structure (like mailing lists). It provides and underlying decoupled API to access information (e.g. news servers) and provide offline storage of newsgroup articles. Asking questions and receiving answers are integrated into the workbench.
