I think it'd be really neat to have a mutt-ot <at> mutt.org list, so we have a
natural place to take any thread that strays from Mutt-relevant material.
A lot of guys on both mutt-users and mutt-dev get very annoyed when
threads get off-topic, but there's no official place for people to take
those discussions (unless you wanna tell 'em to "take it to the <whatever>
list" and that's simply not practical, as all those who want to follow
the conversation don't really want to subscribe to yet another list
(and then worry about unsubscribing), just to follow one thread).

Having an official "take it there" list keeps everybody happy, since those
who want to follow the thread can subscribe to the -ot list.  Those who
like to follow all threads can remain subscribed to the -ot list all the
time.  Those who want nothing to do with any of it can avoid subscribing
to the -ot list, and heckle people with "take it to the -ot list!"

Thanks for hearing me out,
 - Dave

If you need to take a discussion elsewhere, go to #mutt on
irc.freenode.net.

The problem there is that we lose all the advantages of a mailing
list.  (There's a reason, after all, why we don't use IRC for all Mutt
discussion.  That same reason applies to those who get off-topic in the
opinion of most - since "off-topic" is really a democratically defined
concept, after all - during a discussion on one of these lists.)

[payal <at> hotpop.com: urlview]

----- Forwarded message from Payal Rathod <payal <at> hotpop.com> -----

Date: Tue, 29 Apr 2003 10:55:28 +0530
From: Payal Rathod <payal <at> hotpop.com>
Subject: urlview
To: Michael Elkins <me <at> cs.hmc.edu>

Hi,
I am using urlview 0.9 have trouble with it. I use it with mutt. I have
installed urlview from a tarball.
When I press ctrl-B to see the urllist and go to some url say,
http://sed.sf.net/local/scripts/yahoogroups-kill-sig.sed.html

urlview adds/deletes some characters from the url and thus the url is
not reachable. Also in mutt I do not get any prompt to edit the url when
I press ctrl-B and then "ENTER". 
This does not happen for all urls but for few ones.

This never happened before with
previous install. But all the time before I was installing from an rpm
itself.
Is there any config file which I am missing?
Presently I have no ~/.urlview file but I have tried a few sample files.

As an test I made an example,
$ cat url.dat
http://www.hotmail.com
www.hotmail.com
www.ditants.com/mail

bug#1558: mutt-1.5.4i: OPT_MAX is not max, and mutt_expand_fmt off-by-one error

Package: mutt
Version: 1.5.4i
Severity: normal

-- Please type your report below this line

In trying to hunt down the cause of an intermittent coredump when a new
message arrives in an empty folder, I built mutt with gcc-3.2.3
-fbounds-checking.  I've found two bugs so far, neither of which seem
to be causing my crash:

1) In mutt.h, OPT_MAX is no longer the last value in the enum list. 
   This means the QuadOptions array to be too small, which causes a
   bounds check when OPT_BOUNCE is used.

2) In muttlib.c, a pointer is incremented by 2 instead of one when
   skipping %s expandos in mutt_expand_fmt.  This means that expanding
   "%s%s" results in only the first s being expanded, and also causes a
   bounds check if the last two characters in fmt are "%s".

Fix:
