I appreciate your explanation, but I am aware of how many messages a
very active group can have per day ("hundreds of thousands of posts a
day" seems a bit exaggerated to me in the LKML example, but I get your
point).  And that is why I choose to fetch things every 10 minutes: it
seems a good cost/benefit to me.

Fair enough.  As I said when I replied to his message, I remember doing
this at least once before, without being banned.  But of course I may
have triggered some special rule this time...

IP blocked

Hi there,

My current IP is blocked: 201.82.64.252.

I have this IP for a few months now, and I don't remember doing anything
nasty with Gmane to deserve a ban.  Could you clarify this for me, and
also unban my IP?

Thanks,

weft didn't produce an output.

I get this message:

weft didn't produce an output.

when browsing to:

http://news.gmane.org/gmane.linux.ubuntu.user

I'm sure it's temporary, but if anyone didn't know, well, now you do :)

is this the correct way to let you guys know?

Gwene issue: "A feed with this internal ID ... is already subscribed"

Hello,

I'm trying to subscribe to the feed http://ergoemacs.org/emacs/blog.xml
with gwene.org, but when I do so I get an error "A feed with this
internal ID (blog.html) is already subscribed as gwene.fr.kanis.blog."
Unfortunately that feed is unrelated to the one I'm looking for.

Is there a way to add this feed to gwene?

Thanks a lot,

Alan

Please remove me from denial list

I am sorry that I switched newsreaders  ( the old one was suddenly
segfaulting ) and I accidently set it to download all messages ( body and
headers )  from 

gmane.comp.gnome.announce.ftp

My IP is 24.138.116.170

I noticed later I could not get in and got error 480.  I then noticed that
my IP was on the denial list.

I have used gmane for a while and this is an honest mistake.

Please remove ; I promise to be more careful :)

Gmane search via nov.php does not work

Gmane search does not currently work from gnus (e.g., nnir or nnweb).
Both of these interfaces use the following url:

http://search.gmane.org/nov.php

nnir, for instance, constructs queries as follows.:

http://search.gmane.org/nov.php?query=nnir+group%3Agmane.emacs.gnus.general+&HITSPERPAGE=999

If I attempt to access that url (browser, wget, etc.) or even a simpler
url, such as http://search.gmane.org/nov.php?query=nnir, I get the
following message:

"No CGI parameters specified"

Thanks,
Matt

Funky escaping of at character in subject in web interface

Please see <http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.perl.perl5.porters/139389>

The subject of the thread contains an 'at' character.  When hitting followup
this gets oddly escaped into lt; at gt;.

Ideally the at character should be left alone, but if it is escaped, that
needs to be done just once and not double-escaped so that the HTML entity
names end up in the subject.
