No updates since 2011 for gmane.editors.oxygen.user?


the gmane archive of the mailing list for the oXygen XML editor [1] is
stuck at 2011.

The mailing list is still active as it can be seen in the official
archives [2] and in the mirror at [3]. It looks like
the address did not change, nor the mailing list software or the URLs.

Maybe the gmane mirror got somehow deactivated? Could it be reactivated?

I submitted a request for this group a week or two back which has now 
been actioned - Thanks :-)

Since the nifi lists also had "user" and "commits" (like many apache 
lists) this time I just added a request in the comments that they be 
added to, though I don't see them yet

Do I need to re-submit individual requests for these 2 other groups?

Many thanks

I wonder if this just a single glitch or a more widespread problem.

The future of Gmane


With the repeated hardware and configuration breakage over the last
few months, and the even longer than usual hiatus periods between your
visits here, it is beginning to fell like Gmane is somehow not in the
right hands.

Quite frankly, I cannot shake off the feeling that Gmane is headed for
destruction the way things are now.  That would be a pity, because I
think it's a magnificent resource.  Some parts of the functionality is
duplicated elsewhere, but as a whole, it is a system of considerable
utility and brilliance.  There is a community of volunteers -- yes, a
small one, but still -- who would be happy to take over some of the
burden of maintenance if you could only spend a bit of time to support
us properly.

Not sure where to go with this.  I'll just mention for the record that
I managed to get my employer to commit to paying for the bandwidth I
use (disguised as a "monthly donation", only to have the offer turned
down by you.  I don't know -- I'm thinking if we could get paid
support for some of the routine stuff with that money, that would help
you focus on the things which matter to you.

Would you be open for discussing changes in the Gmane ownership or
administration arrangements?  What are your plans for the site and for
your personal involvement, and your intentions for the governance of
the existing infrastructure?

No matter where Gmane is going, you have put in an enormous amount of
work, ideas, and dedication -- thanks for taking it this far!  But

Bug tracker for Gmane?

Lars, as you have been relatively active on Github recently, how would
you feel about using the Github issue tracker for Gmane problems?

Since you are hard to reach, and there are some problems only you can
fix, it would at least help create an illusion that somebody still
cares about keeping Gmane up and running; and hopefully would also
reduce the amount of "me too" and "lost the ball" issues here in


If this were my real .signature, it would suck less.  Well, maybe not.

NNTP through different port than 119?

Would it be possible to provide NNTP access also through a different port
than 119, preferably port 80 (maybe through different hostname, like the
guys at eternal-september did:

Background: After change of firewall supplier requests to port 119 get
filtered out currently (to 563 as well; this will likely last for some weeks
until person in charge is available again to open up respective channels,
ports 80 and 443 were open by default).

"Followup" on web interface is broken

Others have posted about this issue.  In my case it's affecting 
gmane.os.cygwin so it may well be happening with many/all groups.  After 
clicking "Followup" in the frames-based reader the following appears in my 
Chrome browser address bar...

...and the text "No such file" appears as the only page content.

'No such file' on followup

Thanks for getting the Gmane web interface up and running again.
However, the problem mentioned in
of 'no such file' appearing on followup is still there.  I would follow up
in that thread, but...

Gmane mailing lists moved

I moved gmane-test, gmane-announce and gmane-discuss to a new host.  I
copied over the subscription lists, so there shouldn't be much of a
