Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-9562) Excessive moderation of Groovy mailing list?
Date Fri, 01 May 2015 08:23:06 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-9562?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14522929#comment-14522929

Gavin commented on INFRA-9562:

[~melix] Yes gmail does give access to headers, use the 'More' link (down arrow) whilst looking
at a mail and select 'View Original' and you get a mass of header info.

Yes it is VERY relevant how you approve moderation emails. You have demonstrated that you
are 'approve' -ing an email for delivery, that email only, you are not approving the sender
email address to be able to send any more emails, thus not adding them to the ml allow list.
Most of the time you should 'Reply All' which both accepts the mail and allow the sender to
send future mails without moderation.

Now having said all of that, yes the list was configured incorrectly :) So now it should work
like a normal dev list .

> Hi!
> I am sincerely wondering if there's not something wrong with the way the dev@ list for
Groovy is configured. Basically I have to validate *all* messages that come to the list, independently
of the fact I was the sender or not, or if any of the senders is a member of the PMC.
> There's interestingly good traffic on the dev@ list (much more than users@, which is
kind of expected now that everybody seeks support on StackOverflow) but it also means I'm
getting tons of notifications.
> I wonder if we can disable moderation at all. I've been told about HTML emails that could
cause trouble, but we're in 2015, I simply cannot tell everybody who is sending a message
to send a plain text one (and GMail doesn't make it easy anyway).
> The thing that makes me wonder is that I don't seem to have the problem on the user@
