What do you do to update your local copies of the files?

Since I run my own Usenet feeds, I have to copy and paste new information from Eli's network files into my own. If I don't, NEWS.EXE looks for 32767 via 1 which naturally, breaks news on my bbs.

I diffed the files in http://build.wwiv.us/job/wwivnet/1/label=windows/
with my \nets\wwivnet\ files and here's what I think is up, please double check my notes.

There are three files which come in wwivnet-#.zip which have to edited if you have your own Usenet news feed.

file what needs to be changed
BBSLIST.0 append a new line with 99
BBSLIST.1 remove the last line in the file @32767 *704-854-NEWS #14400 ! [ ] "WWIVNET Internet Gateway"
CONNECT.0 Modify the last line from @32767 1 to @32767 99

OK... we're rocking on the happy path to not have to do this.
If that fails for some reason, we'll re-open this

BBSLIST.99 containing the @32767 *###-###-NEWS #14400 ! [ ] "WWIVNET Internet Gateway" is still a requirement, correct?
As is CONNECT.99 ?
