Hi,

My various email providers (my public mail address is forwarded to two 
destinations) appear to have some aggressive spam protection which deletes 
valid emails from the git list.

Is there a way of seeing the most recent git list emails in strict 
date -time order, so I can see if I have missed any threads or authors?

I didn't see anything in the help.


Also, is there a way of providing a gmane id number in the URL (rather than 
via the search box), for easy reference to old thread.
e.g. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/45195/ (used in 
the Git documentation).

I did not see anything in the help about how to include a search term in the 
URL.

regards

Philip

So "strict date-time order" is dependent on when public-inbox.org
receives the mail, not according to the Date: header?

If so, the Atom feed is chronological:
https://public-inbox.org/git/new.atom

There's also https://public-inbox.org/git/new.html which is the
default landing page for admins who don't run Xapian search.

NNTP article numbers on news.public-inbox.org are also
chronological according to time received at public-inbox.org

If you want to go according to the Date: header, you can use
an empty search query:

	https://public-inbox.org/git/?q=

> I didn't see anything in the help.

I'm not sure if new.html is linked, anywhere.  It's only the
default view for non-Xapian users, I'll see about making it more
visible.

All the search terms use "q" as the query parameter name,
similar to how existing search engines work (at least DuckDuckGo
and Google).

I think escaping the ':' is safer, so that becomes '%3A':

	https://public-inbox.org/git/?q=gmane%3A5

But maybe the following works for most people:

	https://public-inbox.org/git/?q=gmane:5

However, you can expand the "thread" view with an extra "x=t":

	https://public-inbox.org/git/?q=gmane%3A5&x=t

(or x=A for Atom feed)


Hope that helps!

I think that's OK, as long as it's within a few hours (normally) of sent 
time then that's OK.
My work email is very bad for removing emails from senders with high end 
UTF-8 chars (or it feels like that). I missed a whole 16 patch series late 
last week - it was only the reviews that cued me to its omission.

That looks useful.

Interesting. My MUA missed the '=' of the end of the link when highlighting! 
Without it it wasn't what I was hoping for. With it it looks quite 
acceptable.

I also see that I can add /q=gmane:<num> as well (should have seen that 
earlier).

If you can add to the help page that the search terms can be added at the 
end of the https://public-inbox.org/git/?q=<search_term> link, it may help 
folk like me who didn't quite make the leap.

Very useful!
