Mailing list archives update note


The mailing list archives for DragonFly (lists.dragonflybsd.org) have been moved to new hardware.  (Yay!)  The patch that actually shows date in the listings needs to reapplied, cause Mailman is somewhat stale.  (Boo!)  I applied the patch and I’m regenerating all the archives now.  (Yay!)  There’s some garbled messages in the archives that cause a bunch of “no subject” partial messages to be dumped at the end.  (Boo!)  I’ll manually fix them if I can, someday.  (Yay?)

  1. Thomas Nikolajsen says:

    This is all dandy; but old mail archive system wasn’t moved to new machine, which is a pity as it had much better format: date sorted list was with newest at top, and replies uses Re:. Alas, this was to be expected; but fixing new mail archive to make format as nice as old would be nice!

  2. Mailman isn’t as flexible as I’d like. I have a patch to add the dates to the listings, which actually works now that Sascha reminded me to do it. I don’t have a way yet to reverse the lists, which I would like to do. That will either require diving into Mailman more than I have previously, or finding a solution someone already did…
