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.

tripoint.kitware.com blocked from gmane

It seems one of my coworkers tripped gmane's automatic blocking
mechanism (downloading from LKML no less, which I mention from seeing
the recent thread that apparently that group has seriously high
traffic). I've talked to him about it and sent mail to Lars last Monday,
but haven't heard back; trying gmane.discuss also in case that gets
better readership.

Can someone (Lars?) please unblock us (tripoint.kitware.com or
66.194.253.20 or 66.194.253.16/28)? I'd really like my gmane back!

Thanks,
