#433 new defect

mailing list archives are threaded weirdly

Reported by: warner Owned by: zandr
Priority: minor Milestone: undecided
Component: dev-infrastructure Version: n/a
Keywords: pipermail archive Cc:
Launchpad Bug:


http://allmydata.org/pipermail/tahoe-dev/2008-May/thread.html shows a number of messages in a hierarchy that suggests one is a response to another, when in fact the messages are unrelated. In particular the "announcing the tahoe-announce list" message is *not* a response to "[ANN] Foolscap-0.2.6 Released". I checked the headers fo the tahoe-announce message and there is not a In-Reply-To: or References: header at all. My local MUA does not show these messages as being related.

I think that pipermail is doing something screwy. This is a minor thing, but Zandr, I know you did some work recently with mailing-list archive displayers, could you take a look at it? I usually like pipermail (clean, fast, googlable, easy to follow threads, no javascript), but if you've got something else that you like better, feel free to switch us over to it.

Zandr is trying out the "lurker" mail-archive tool, and it looks nice.
