"Not a valid feed"

Bring out the Urqells!

I can't sign up this feed:

Curl works.  I tested this command:

curl ''

XML::FeedPP->new works.  I tested this script:

use XML::FeedPP;
my $url = "";
my $feed = XML::FeedPP->new($url);
print $feed->to_string();

Anything else I can do?  I really miss my feed a loooooot!  (See all
those 'o's?!?)

Password required on NNTP to, have I been blocked?

Hm... suddely required a username/password combination
from me (and when I gave it the one I have, let me in).

Does this mean I have been blocked?

Catching up

I've been neglecting my Gmanely duties for a while -- I haven't handled
mail to Gmane since, er, March.  So there are 680 messages in the
"please delete me"/"Gmane is down"/"How do you install R on FreeBSD"

I'm dedicating this night to watching TV series, drinking Urquell and
going through this list.

Wish me luck!

gmane.linux.gentoo.licenses missing articles in summary

Something seems inconsistent with that group. I can access e.g. the
following article posted today:

However, following the link in the article's Subject
will report "No such article".

Neither does the article show up in the summary of the group:

Message sent, but not listed in GMane - why?

I have this problem:

Whenever I post a message to "" 
(public-webapps <at>, my message seems to get posted to the mailing list 
(well, I do receive replies in my e-mail inbox, that's my hint) but my 
message is not getting listed on GMane.

So my newsreader won't echo my message nor does it show any reply to my 
messages, because GMane simply doesn't provide the corresponding thread.

Looking at I 
can't find my message, too. Nor can I find any replies there. The last 
message listed there is dated Nov. 3rd, but my message was posted Nov. 12th!

What's going wrong? How can I have this issue fixed?

Any help is appreciated.

Denied removal


It seems I have tripped the denial trigger, I actually don't know what 
caused this. I hadn't used my client (gnus) in a while and when I entered 
a group it was downloading eternally, still no idea what is wrong yet, but 
I will attempt to debug on smaller groups.

My ip is (, it 
would be super-cool if you could remove me from the blocked list.

Message taking many days to appear on the list

When I send a message to the group (at
sqlite-users <at> the messages take from many hours to many days to appear. I currently have two
message posted there from a few days ago but they have yet to show up. Some previous messages I sent did
eventually appear but they took a long time also.

Perhaps the pipes in there have a blockage?

Group on gwene not updating

The group has not been updated since July 2013,
even though the blog and feed have been updated many times since then
(e.g., there is a post as recently as October 30, 2014).

Checking the X-Feed header, I notice that the group is based on the
following url:

This link still works just fine (though it does redirect to https).
Moreover, the feed validates:

Gwene rejects Atom feed URL (HTTPS issue?)

I tried signing this feed up at Gwene only to be told that it was not a
valid feed:

Perhaps this might be an HTTPS issue. When I change the https:// to
http:// in my browser, Lonely Planet's website insists on forwarding me
to https:// anyway. Does Gwene choke on HTTPS?

What's wrong with gmane.comp.python.rope ?

It is a Google Groups group 
(!topic/rope-dev/), and nothing 
changed there, but it doesn't get messsages now. Any idea, 
what's wrong?
