gmane address filter is mixmaster-aware?

The group gmane.comp.bitcoin.payment.channels has a gmane-masked
posting address:

  List-Post: <mailto:bmc@...>

so when someone posts using mixmaster, the /From:/ address (which is
anonymous and generally recognized as an address that cannot deliver
replies) is replaced with:

  Jack Ryan <noreply@...>

It was a pleasant surprise to see that the gmane address is prefixed
with "noreply-..." (without it, a reader might expect the gmane
address for Jack Ryan to be forwarded to a meaningful address).

Is the gmane email address filter really smart enough to recognize a
mixmaster address and act accordingly?  Or is something else going on
here?

Updating phpMyAdmin lists

Hello,

I'm with the phpMyAdmin team, and we have a number of lists [1] archived
on Gmane. We've updated our mailing lists to a new address since we're
now self-hosting the lists, and I'd like to update the Gmane records
accordingly. Is there a way to do that, or is the best way to create new
list entries directly and import the entire old archives?

Can you point me in the right direction to sort this out?

announce, devel, scm, and translators are the four lists we're looking
to modify; the user list[2] has been depreciated for some time now.

Thanks
Isaac Bennetch
for the phpMyAdmin team
(I'm the mail server/list administrator)

gmane search no longer taking "field:searchterm" style syntax

According to the gmane search front page, gmane search at  accepts syntax in
the format "author:name" or "group:groupname".

This post also suggests that that is the case:

http://article.gmane.org/gmane.discuss/10349

However, when I attempt to use such syntax, it returns strange or
no results. See, for instance...

http://search.gmane.org/?query=author%3ALundin+group%3Agmane.discuss&author=&group=&sort=relevance&DEFAULTOP=and&xP=ALundin%09Gdiscuss&xFILTERS=--A

Has the field:searchterm syntax been obsoleted? The reason I ask is that
nnir search in gnus depends upon it.

You can see the difference clearly by noting what these urls return:

http://search.gmane.org/nov.php?query=author:Lundin+group:gmane.discuss

http://search.gmane.org/nov.php?query=&author=Lundin&group=gmane.discuss

Schneier blog on gwene stopped updating

The following groups on gwene all stopped updating as of July 23, 2015,
even though the rss files have changed since then:

gwene.com.feedburner.schneier.rss => http://feeds.feedburner.com/schneier/fulltext
gwene.com.schneier.blog => http://www.schneier.com/blog/index.rdf
gwene.com.schneier.on.security.blog => http://www.schneier.com/blog/index.xml
gwene.com.schneier.crypto-gram-rs => http://www.schneier.com/crypto-gram-rss.xml

Some of these blogs redirect to other urls: e.g.,
https://www.schneier.com/blog/index2.xml. If I try to subscribe that
url on gwene, the website says "Not a valid feed."

So I ran a number of tests:

1) The urls validate (though there are some minor issues with the xml feeds):

- https://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.schneier.com%2Fblog%2Findex.rdf
- https://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Ffeeds.feedburner.com%2Fschneier%2Ffulltext
- https://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.schneier.com%2Fblog%2Findex.xml
- https://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http://www.schneier.com/crypto-gram-rss.xml
- https://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.schneier.com%2Fblog%2Findex2.xml

2) I downloaded them with curl on my machine using the -L option. I also
tried curl with "-A Gwene/1.0 (The gwene.org rss-to-news gateway)" to
ensure that the user agent wasn't being blocked. Everything worked fine.

3) I downloaded the gwene source from github ran the urls through the
validate-rss. That worked fine as well.

Any other ideas as to what might be going on? Does "Not a valid feed" on

LLVM lists move & partial rename

Hi all,

Last week, the LLVM-related mailing lists moved from cs.uiuc.edu to
lists.llvm.org (see [1]). It seems like Gmane didn't really bother with this
rename, despite the detailed information of most lists still pointing to
cs.uiuc.edu, except for the two lists which also got renamed: LLVMDev ->
llvm-dev and LLVMBugs -> llvm-bugs. These lists, respectively at
gmane.comp.compilers.llvm.devel and gmane.comp.compilers.llvm.bugs, aren't
getting any new messages.

I assume this needs a change which I can't perform in the list's edit
information page?

Best,
Tim

Posting not working

I posted an article to gmane.science.mathematics.logic.coq.club through
Emacs Gnus a few hours ago, but it hasn't appeared either in Gmane or in the
mailing list archives.  (I am subscribed to the list, and have been
authorised by Gmane a couple of years ago to post to the list through Gmane.)

To test this, I posted to gmane.testing, but that message too hasn't
appeared in the Gmane archive for the group at http://news.gmane.org/gmane.test/

Until a few months ago, I was able to post (to other groups), and see the
articles immediately on the Gmane Web site.  Can someone tell me what the
problem now is?

Thanks and cheers,
Raghu.
