Caching for builds.sr.ht? 3 months ago

From Sean Whitton to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

Hello,

Is there caching set up for the Debian images on builds.sr.ht?

I think something is going wrong with it:

    E: Failed to fetch http://deb.debian.org/debian/pool/main/o/ocrmypdf/ocrmypdf-doc_9.6.0+dfsg-1_all.deb  Hash Sum mismatch

Right.  But it has that established meaning in people's minds so could
cause confusion.  "Wait a minute, don't pluses in e-mails mean that part
isn't really part of the address?"

Possibly useful: 'mailscripts' package 8 months ago

From Sean Whitton to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

Hello,

The new 'mailscripts' package in Debian and its derivatives has a number
of useful scripts for people interested in e-mail-based git workflows.
I thought it would be useful to share them with the sr.ht & aerc
communities.

For aerc users: maildir-import-patch(1) might be useful to you:
https://manpages.debian.org/maildir-import-patch

For aerc+notmuch and emacs+notmuch users: notmuch-import-patch(1) is
likely to be useful to you: https://manpages.debian.org/notmuch-import-patch

For emacs+notmuch users: the new Emacs commands

I wonder if you've considered git-annex-shell support too?
