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.
