Hi,

A draft of a new Git Rev News edition is available here:

  https://github.com/git/git.github.io/blob/master/rev_news/drafts/edition-18.md

Everyone is welcome to contribute in any section either by editing the
above page on GitHub and sending a pull request, or by commenting on
this GitHub issue:

  https://github.com/git/git.github.io/issues/170

You can also reply to this email.

I tried to cc everyone who appears in this edition but maybe I missed
some people, sorry about that.

Thomas, Nicola and myself plan to publish this edition on Wednesday
August 17. Sorry for the late draft again.

Thanks,
Christian.

I am not sure that is to be recommended, as that ends up going to
the list, but anyway, these

 - Michael's "finding better -/+ assignment in diff using indent
   heuristic"

 - Philip Oakley's updates to revision range notation documentation

 - Kevin Willford's rather clever optimization on internal patch-id
   computation that is done to exclude already-applied commit while
   rebasing

are interesting/noteworthy topics that may want to be covered in the
discussion/review section.

I see you mention in passing (weel in the small headings near the bottom) 
that gmane web interface has gone away. It may be worth noting a few of the 
alternatives, and in particular Eric's newly updated public-inbox 
https://public-inbox.org/git/.

I've found it very useful and probably easier to use. (now I've seen 
https://public-inbox.org/design_www.html)

Thanks, I will also add that existing gmane links can be looked up
in instance I maintain via:

	public-inbox.org/git/?q=gmane:123456

It might be worth it to convert numeric links to Message-IDs in older
editions, as I also published a mapping at:

   https://public-inbox.org/.temp/gmane.comp.version-control.git-300599.txt.gz

> I've found it very useful and probably easier to use. (now I've seen
> https://public-inbox.org/design_www.html)

Based on closer reading of RFC3986, section 3.3, I deployed a
change to URL generation last night so the "%40" escape for '@'
no longer shows up in generated URLs (along with a few other
characters):

   https://public-inbox.org/meta/20160814105152.21925-1-e@80x24.org/

It might be worth updating this edition to avoid the percent
escaping since it might confuse users about what the Message-IDs
are (and to avoid users passing "%40" into their MUA)

Old URLs will always continue working, of course.

Would including a 'help' link on the main pages be possible? Maybe to the 
www-design page or whatever, just to make the users aware of the wider 
resourses, and a few key ways of entering search queries (such as the 
"gmane:123456" which gets that msg, while "gmane/123456" will get all 
messages that refered to that message (pure text search)..

Yes, there'll definitely be online help with generic
instructions and also instructions specific to each instance
so things like "gmane:N" can be documented.

There's also bunch of search prefixes I need to document, like
"s:" for subject and whatever the built-in timestamp/date range
parser for Xapian is.  I keep forgetting the Xapian query syntax
myself!

Yeah, I agree that we really needed to add something about
public-inbox, so I added the following:

Yeah, these are great topics and I would be glad if they could be

It would be nice to turn it into mini-story rather than just putting
a link.

It's a great pity that https://public-inbox.org/ is just
directory index, not a true home page.

+Cc meta@public-inbox.org

I'm not sure one could do better while staying true to the
minimalist nature of plain-text email.

In the spirit of decentralization, there may not be /a/
homepage, but many.   Everything is meant to clonable with each
public-inbox, so maybe every public-inbox will have a code
branch attached to it with the source+docs bundled.


At least for now, other pages are more easily discoverable[1]
but one day I hope to have repobrowse[2] running there (and
maybe everywhere).


For now, I am prioritizing user/admin/hacker documentation so
more instances can exist.  I'll probably get some online help
stuff up tomorrow.


[1] at least the top-level of public-inbox.org already has more
    content than both YHBT.net and bogomips.org combined :)

[2] git clone -b repobrowse https://public-inbox.org/ ...
    (idle the moment: think cgit|gitweb with the same (lack of)
     style as public-inbox, +search, +mail thread integration)

It'd be nice if it had a prominent list of all lists available; as far
as I can tell, the main page has no link to /git/.

Yeah, it would be also very welcome if someone could send a patch or a
pull request for a mini-story about it.

Thanks for this. Maybe you could just add those in a pull request or a
patch to the "Git tools and sites" sub section just after the item
about public-inbox?

Thanks anyway!

I'm not sure that's necessary; most of the traffic seems to come
from /git/MESSAGE_ID/ links posted by others.  So it's
probably more inside-out exposure than anything.

As for other projects, I'm not aware of anybody else using it,
yet.  I have some small projects using it, but most of those are
one-off throwaways and I'm not comfortable promoting those along
with public-inbox.  I admit: I'm not comfortable promoting
anything I do, really.

I do wish more people would start using the .onions, though...

If someone hears about public-inbox, it's nice to know what other lists
they can use it for.

Please take this as encouragement to do so.  I'd love to see the
public-inbox equivalent to the main page of https://lists.debian.org/ ,
as an example.  (And I'd love to have public-inbox archives of Debian
mailing lists.)

Finally added https://public-inbox.org/git/_/text/help/

I actually totally overdid some things and trimmed it down before
publishing because I felt like it was becoming it's own wiki :x

  https://public-inbox.org/meta/20160818095150.17118-1-e@80x24.org/T/

Anyways, I'm still thinking there might be too much or too little
detail.  I don't know how well-known Atom feeds are, even.

Just pushed out some POD (which should build to manpages),
so maybe early adopters can start hosting mirrors themselves(*).

   https://public-inbox.org/meta/20160907004907.1479-1-e@80x24.org/

I hope public-inbox-overview(7) is a good starting point
(along with the existing INSTALL) and there'll be more docs
coming at some point...


Writing documentation tends to make my attention span drift all
over the place; so maybe parts don't make sense or were glossed
over, but I'll be glad to help clarify anything.  (Responding
to emails is generally easier for me since I can answer things
specifically, tough to do for generic docs)


I'll try to get a tarball release out soonish,
but my schedule is unpredictable.


(*) None of the code has had any security audit, yet;
    and there's no warranty of course.
