For those of you wondering about the context of this message, I forgot

Mutt handling of in-reply-to in mailto links 1 year, 8 months ago

From Sumner Evans to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

I have noticed a lot of posts to this and other mailing lists where the
in-reply-to header is set incorrectly causing the thread chains to
become disconnected. I want to share one reason that may be the case
and a solution (for mutt users).

By default, mutt is configured to only allow the Subject and Body
headers to be specified in mailto links [1]. Thus, if a mutt user copies
the mailto link from the "Reply to thread" button on the website, and
runs mutt with the mailto link:

    $ mutt 'mailto:~sircmpwn/public-inbox@lists.sr.ht?cc=Drew%20DeVault%20%3Csir%40cmpwn.com%3E&in-reply-to=%3CCAEDVDIBZ5PX.1YXHCZQG995MC%40taiga%3E&subject=Re%3A%20openring%20license%20clarification'

mutt will ignore the in-reply-to part of the URL causing issues with
thread continuity. (Mutt also ignores the CC field as well, but that is

openring license clarification 1 year, 8 months ago

From Sumner Evans to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

Is openring licensed under GPLv3-or-later, or GPLv3-only?

For context, this distinction matters for packaging GPL-licensed
software for Nixpkgs. See relevant discussion here:

I don't think that the AUR registers changes unless you increment either
pkgver or pkgrel, so please update the pkgrel version.

Migrated to sr.ht 2 years ago

From Sumner Evans to ~sumner/public-inbox

Recently, I completed a migration of offlinemsmtp to sourcehut (sr.ht).
This is due to a few reasons:

1. I like the speed and simplicity of the sourcehut interface.

2. GitLab keeps getting bloated with unnecessary features (dev ops,
   security/compliance features) that clutter the interface and make it
   difficult to use.

3. (This is the real catalyst for my decision to migrate) GitLab
   recently added a new "feature" that focuses the GitLab search bar
   when you type slash (/) anywhere on the webpage (besides when focused
   on a text box). This is totally unacceptable since I use an
   extension (Tridactyl) which adds Vim bindings many browser features

[PATCH git-send-email.io] Make the output of step 4.4 closer to what users actually see 2 years ago

Mentioning src/main.c with a diff that is different than what the user
