Report is used to report the problems and status of the news system,
normally by mail.
subject is a single argument (normally enclosed in quotes) summarizing what
the message is about;
the message text itself is supplied to
report on standard input.
If the message text is empty,
report does not send anything.
-u option indicates that the message is urgent,
which may affect how it
is mailed or to whom.
Report consults a control file,
/var/lib/news/report.ctl, to determine the destination(s) of mail.
The control file is syntactically a shell file,
which should assign to the shell variables
nonurgentto. The values should be one or more mailing addresses,
in whatever form the local mailer wants,
separated by commas (and possibly white space as well).
They should not contain material other than addresses,
e.g. RFC822 comments containing full names etc.
Report is supplied as a central handling facility for error messages and
status reports for C News,
so that changes and customization
in this often-system-specific area
can be done in a single program.
