Subject: [PATCH 4/8] doc: lei blob: wording fixups, describe --remote
Date: Thu, 28 Oct 2021 11:14:57 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

There's no current way to retrieve blobs by OID directly
from remote externals.  Maybe the $INBOX_NAME/$OID/s/raw.eml
endpoint could be overloaded for that.
