+Cc: Heiko

I guess it was dropped by vger, first.

If you check
and follow the links to or,
it's missing in those places, too.

Same with nntp://
(should load in w3m or lynx)

It might've also coincided with vger downtime, so perhaps
Heiko's server failed to retry.  vger has had quite a few
failures, recently (or perhaps I'm only paying attention more
now that I'm mirroring git@vger).

Based on his other messages and the Message-ID, it looks like he
used mutt; so it's unlikely to be a problem with HTML (but
perhaps it was some taboo attachment, but also unlikely).
Anything interesting from looking at the raw message +headers?


In general, these things happen (and happened in the heyday of
Usenet, too); and quoting is helpful for this.
