>No, he needs to have *root* on the news group:
Why are you doing this? root already can read uucp-owned files.
I don't have to include any other user in my uucp e news groups:
-rwxr-sr-x 1 root news 20901 Apr 13 1996 /usr/bin/rnews*
-rwsr-xr-- 1 ifmail news 72648 May 4 18:50 /usr/lib/ifmail/ifmail*
