Subject RE: maling list archives and bug tracker dumps for academic research evaluation
Date Thu, 03 Sep 2009 12:22:59 GMT

Dear Mark,

I have question regarding the Tomcat-dev mailing list. I was looking at the archives of tomcat-dev
mailing list and found that whenever a new bug is logged on bugzilla bug tracker or a commit
has been done on SVN, an email is sent to the tomcat-dev mailing list ( please correct me
here if i am wrong ). I would like to know, if the tomcat developers discuss the development
issues also on this mailing list or if tomcat has any other mailing list or discussion forum
for developers for that ?

Regarding the archives of mailing list, it would be very easier to parse the archives, if
i get the monthly archives in .mbox format. The reason is, i have a parser which parses email
of type .mbox extension. The archives hosted at Apache looks like they have monthly archives
stored in .mbox format e.g. []

NOTE: I am not familiar much with the differences of other archives extension

looking forward for your kind response.
Aftab Iqbal

It would be even nicer if i can have 1 compressed file for one month instead of 1 compressed
file for all 12 months, if it is possible.

you upload it somewhere and let me download it from their.

OK. Give me a couple of days and I'll get that sorted for you.
