I've finished (I think) getting the Xref correct in the rslight news server.

Until now, it would list each article as a standalone. So, if there was a crosspost to alt.test and another.test, each would have an Xref line for just that specific group.

Now it works properly and both would have a line like:

Xref: alt.test:100 anothertest:232

This was done to help external newsreaders to take advantage if the newsreader supports the info. I try to make the rslight news server as compatible as I can with news readers. It was finished in it's ability to support the web interface quite a long time ago, and all modifications since then have been to become as standard a nnrp server as possible.

So far it seems to be working properly.
