Subject Configuration change for cvs@httpd?
Date Wed, 31 Dec 2008 14:48:03 GMT
A while back, we made a configuration change to all of our commits@
(aka cvs@) lists across the foundation so that they are unmoderated.
As a side-effect, it means that all posts require
addresses or you get a bounce back from MAILER-DAEMON.

The side-effect of this (for at least Thunderbird and GMail) is that
you can no longer hit 'reply all' to our commit emails without
automatically also snarfing in cvs@httpd as a recipient.  So, if you
hit 'reply all' and send from a non address, you will get
a "nice" bounce message each time you reply to the commit message
unless you manually remove the recipient.  From looking at the
archives, I know that myself, Paul, Philip, and likely Jim have all
hit this blowback to varying degrees over the last month.  In light of
this, Joe has suggested adding:

To: undisclosed-recipients:;

to headeradd for cvs@httpd, overriding the normal To:  That should prevent Reply-All from picking up
the commit list, since there won't be anything in the To: or CC:
fields for it to use.

This should restore the ability to hit 'reply all' with Thunderbird
and GMail for those of us who don't use from addresses.

Are there any objections to doing so?

Thanks and have a healthy and happy new year with all of your friends
and family.  -- justin
