to let the insects in

Sunday, 2 December 2007

My migration to mercurial is now complete. I've completed the last step, which was the migration of all the $foo-commits mailing lists.

It is at times like this that I remember two things:

  • All mailing list software sucks. (here we go again.)
  • All the mailing-list-archive-makers suck.

Right now I'm using ecartis for my mailing lists, primarily because it isn't mailman. (Long story).

For making archives of mbox files I'm using hypermail.

The latter I intend to change as soon as I can find something else to use. It isn't attractive, but it is in the Debian archive and seems reliable.

Since I was changing things around already I've centralised the list-archive making, and started using the haschanged tool to avoid rebuilding the archives i there are no new posts. That works nicely.
