Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-14953) Add support for mod_mbox Permalinks to lists.a.o
Date Sat, 30 Jun 2018 01:02:00 GMT


Sebb commented on INFRA-14953:

This issue is about ensuring that Permalinks currently handled by mail-archives/mail-private
can be handled by lists.a.o.

The way I see it, existing mod_mbox URLs will need to be forwarded to lists.a.o, possibly
with some limited rewriting. Lists.a.o then parses the URL to extract the Message ID, list,
and month and searches for match(es) in its database.

I don't see a need for a mapping file here, because the mod_mbox Permalink format uses immutable
attributes of the mail messages.

data that can be used to search lists.a.o:
> Message-ID
> List name
> month (though lists.a.o originally used local time and it believes the Date: field rather
than the arival time so the search may need to ignore the date)

> However note that such conversion is not likely to be possible for historical Permalinks
generated by PonyMail/lists.a.o because the message id generators are very sensitive to the
exact form of the input (and the software environment).
