Problem with snews

Hello,

When I'm trying to connect to snews.gmane.org, Thunderbird closes the 
connection and displays 'snews.gmane.org received a message with 
incorrect Message Authentication Code. [...]'. Similarly, OpenSSL gives 
an handshake failure:

$ openssl s_client -host snews.gmane.org -port 563
CONNECTED(00000003)

/C=NO/ST=Norway/L=Oslo/O=Gmane/CN=snews.gmane.org/emailAddress=postmaster <at> gmane.org

I'm not sure if it's just me. Any idea how to fix this?

Best wishes,

Bruno.

Ask Lars to restart the tunnel.

Hello!

Since I personally find the encryption of email addresses quite
annoying, it bothers me that it's enabled by default on
<http://gmane.org/subscribe.php>. So when I handle the subscription
requests I don't know if the list admin or subscriber really wants
encryption or just forgot to unset it on the subscription page. I
think it should be unset by default and only be used when really
wanted.

+0 from me.

On a related issue, I suggest to apply similar "valid group name"
heuristics to the subscription page as the ones being used in
gmane.el.  While I understand that many people don't know which list
software is used, all should be able to suggest a quite good group
name that needs to be modified only slightly, if at all.

Tschö,
Torsten.

-1 here.

While there are certainly times I'd prefer unencrypted email in the 
groups I use that encrypt it, IMO if gmane makes that the default, it's 
likely to attract abuse... and ultimately damage gmane's reputation.  
Additionally, it'd be much easier for a list admin to decide they'd 
rather not be on gmane.  The existing default makes it MUCH harder to use 
the "gmane's leaking addresses to the spammers" excuse.

IOW, while having the unencrypted email addresses is nice, I'd a whole 
lot have the lists available on gmane with encrypted addresses, then not 
available, and I believe if the default changes, it'll ultimately cause 
rather more list admins to say "No, gmane may not carry my list", 
regardless.  I don't want that to happen, so I in turn prefer the default 
to stay at encrypted addresses.

It's no big deal to uncheck the horrible encryption option in a
subscription request, but of course that only works if I'm first
to propose a list.  And I'm often interested in lists where
discussing mail and news headers is the topic.

IMO lists not available on GMaNe are by definition irrelevant ;-)
