OK, I'll keep that in mind.

It's definitely not what you'd expect to see in the archive pages. The
end of the message is cut off. I reported a similar issue not long ago,
occuring in the same thread as it happens!

Yes, the copyright assignment was completed yesterday. You can add the

[lists.sr.ht] Message body cut off at attachment in archive 4 months ago

From Gregory Chamberlain to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

Hi,

I noticed a potential bug in the archive view of my mailing list. In the
third message of the thread (linked below), there is a text/plain
attachment in the _middle_ of the message body.

https://lists.sr.ht/~chambln/public-inbox/%3C87wnf5bqv5.fsf%40posteo.net%3E#%3C87pmkjyig7.fsf@posteo.net%3E

On the archive page for that thread, the presence of an attachment is
not represented in any way. What's more, the remainder of the body is
cut off so you can't read the entire message. Notice the message is cut
off after this line, where the attachment begins:

Thanks, I've now sent the CA.

Hi Philip,

I'd be delighted to see Aircon added to GNU ELPA. How can we do that?

(Sorry for the duplicate message, I forgot to CC the list!)

If vim-ipa is what you’re comfortable using, that’s great.

It looks like it works by converting a selected region of the buffer,

Re: How to Pronounce Any English Word 1 year, 12 days ago

From Gregory Chamberlain to ~chambln/public-inbox

I had been a Vim user for quite some time before trying Emacs, but I
avoided evil-mode and the like because I wanted to learn Emacs "the
Emacs way."  I wanted to give standard Emacs key bindings a fair chance.

Modal editing has its advantages but, after the initial learning curve,
I’ve come to appreciate the Emacs way.

By the way, I had an idea about inputting IPA symbols that could be used
with editors like Vim and Kakoune.  What if we had a program that reads
from standard input and writes to standard output, doing exactly what
the ‘ipa’ input method does in Emacs.  It may even be possible with a
simple sed program.

Thanks for writing in!

At the time, I did not have an elegant way to input IPA symbols.  I was
mostly copy-pasting from Wiktionary, which was cumbersome.  Recently I
discovered Emacs has an input method for IPA -- several, in fact!  I've
now posted an article I was working on which goes into more detail on
this.[1]
