[rslight] Where is the setting for the history range for pulling messages?

I configured some Usenet test groups to watch the synchronization. It
seems that rslight pulls only 1000 messages from a group with 10K+
messages and does not pull any further back in the history. It
continues to update newer messages that come into the groups but does
not finish synchronizing the entire history.

Example here:
https://sybershock.com/forum/random/thread.php?group=alt.anonymous.messages&first=1201&last=1400

Is there a configuration option to change this and make rslight pull
older messages from a peer? I want it to update the past three years of
messages then ignore older ones. I can't find anything relevant in the
config so some help would be appreciated.

This is set in $maxfirstrequest rslight/scripts/spoolnews.php:

if(!isset($maxarticles_per_run)) {
$maxarticles_per_run = 100;
} if(!isset($maxfirstrequest)) {
$maxfirstrequest = 1000;
}

if(!isset($CONFIG['enable_nntp']) || $CONFIG['enable_nntp'] != true) {
$maxfirstrequest = $maxarticles;
$maxarticles_per_run = $maxfetch;
}

There is currently no configure option to change it, it's hard coded, but you can change
it in the file around line 38:

if(!isset($maxarticles_per_run)) {
$maxarticles_per_run = 100;
} if(!isset($maxfirstrequest)) {
$maxfirstrequest = 10000;
}

if(!isset($CONFIG['enable_nntp']) || $CONFIG['enable_nntp'] != true) {
$maxfirstrequest = $maxarticles;
$maxarticles_per_run = $maxfetch;
}

<snip>

I did find this:

scripts/spoolnews.php: $maxfirstrequest = 1000;

If I increase this number does that pull further back in history?

And is there a date setting rather than a number? I'd prefer to set it
for 3 years back from whatever the current day is. This way when I add
a new group it will just start syncing 3 years of history.

That should work.

> If I increase this number does that pull further back in history?

Yes, it just takes the highest number from the server and subtracts
$maxfirstrequest and starts requesting from that number.

There is currently no setting to pull by date.
