Subject: 2 problems with listid matching
Date: Mon, 21 Sep 2020 14:01:52 -0400
Message-ID: <20200921180152.uyqluod7qxbwqubo@chatter.i7.local> (raw)


Attempting to subscribe has highlighted two 
problems with list-id matching. When the email comes in from the mailing 
list, the header is set as:


Public-inbox doesn't find this because the above list-id header is not 
compliant with the RFC (it should be inside angle brackets). However, 
even when <> are added, the match still fails due to capitalization: the 
List-Id value from the email header is lc'd first before it is compared 
with the listid= value in the config file (which isn't lc'd). So, if the 
config file value is using capitalization, the match will never succeed.

I think public-inbox should recognize this list-id header even though 
it's not compliant, and it should lc both values before comparing them, 
since the canonical value uses capitalization.

Best regards,
