Hm...  do you remember whether rain used to be woody or sid?  It's
woody now...

I suspect woody, but I don't really remember.

But I've sussed out the problem.  I reuse stop_words.h from we_search but
it wasn't in the patch I'd made against the released version of Xapian.

I just copied the header over again when restoring the source trees which
were on the dead disk but forgot to remove the terminating NULL (I use
start and end pointers as iterators instead).  So it was segfaulting in a
static object constructor dereferencing NULL before main was even entered.

So now rain is back up searching the old database.  I'll see if I can set
a new build going next.

Thanks for installing the packages.

Cheers,
    Olly

sarge has been out for a while.  Unless there is something holding
back, I strongly suggests switching.

Take a look at this extension:

Thanks.  I'll have a look.  But wouldn't it be a good idea to also add the links
explicitly to the bottom of the page in Gmane?  Else all firefox users run into
the same issue (as well as users of some other browsers).

BATV on Gmane?

Gmane has been inundated by backscatter from spam lately.  Someone
has been sending spam with <non-existant-address> <at> sea.gmane.org as
the MAIL FROM.  These messages all end up in gmane.config, so they
don't really affect the mailing list archives per se, but they're all
handled by SpamAssassin etc, so they soak up resources.

So I'm thinking about starting to use BATV (which basically mangles
the MAIL FROM by using cryptography, but still leaving it valid) and
rejecting all bounce messages (i.e., from <>) at the MTA level.
Which will cut down on load and stuff.

A different approach would be to just drop any bounce messages, but
that's problematic as we wouldn't see bounce messages from the sign-up
process when we're sending subscription messages to the wrong
address...

Or I could make the system not pass bounce messages through
SpamAssassin, and then file them in a special gmane.config.bounce
group.  The problem here is still the same -- that group will be so
full of spam that it'll be impossible to catch "real" bounces...

Or I could do something else.  Any ideas?  I mean, this isn't a major
problem -- this is the exim queue length:
<URL: http://gmane.org/plot-queue.php>.  So perhaps doing nothing in
an option...

According to the list archives [1] there are new messages on the list,
but the groups [2] haven't been created on Gmane yet.

Could someone check what's wrong, please?

There was no response when signing up.  I've now sent new
subscription messages.
