Subject Script to generate mail archive URL from message
Date Tue, 12 Jul 2011 20:44:57 GMT
Hi,

Seen that every message to the mailing list can be retrieved from the
archive using an URL of the form
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-ooo-dev/YYYYMM.mbox/%3CMessage-ID%3E
I hacked a script that parses a message from stdin to generate the
corresponding URL, attached. In Mutt this can be invoked as pipe on
a message with

|apache-mail-archive-url.pl

Using Thunderbird you probably have to save the raw message as file
first unless there is an add-on to invoke arbitrary commands on
a message.

Best of course would be if the mailing list software would insert
a header X-Archive-URL before distributing the message that could be
copied to the clipboard.
