My idea was to use NNTP as a way to facilitate the development of a new git utility that would serve as the inverse of git-send-email (sort of like the relationship between git format-patch and git am), rather than using a IIRC, I had posted some proof-of-concept Perl code to do so back in August in <DM5PR17MB1353B99EBD5F4FD23360DD41D3ED0@DM5PR17MB1353.namprd17.prod.outlook.com> Looking at public-inbox now at the archives of this group, it appears that several of the messages I sent weren't archived for some reason (and I didn't see any more responses to what I posted at the time). The messages are accessible via NNTP when connecting to gmane though. Also, looking at the source of the message I referenced, it appears that my MUA decided to base64 encode the message for some reason (which may have resulted in it getting filtered by those who I sent the message to). I will look into this more now (given yours and Junio's responses). >> Getting back to the point I made when this thread was still active, I >> still think it would be better to be able to list the message-id values >> in the header or body of the cover letter message of a patch series >> (preferably the former) in order to facilitate downloading the patches >> via NNTP from gmane or public-inbox.org.

Perhaps, but should something like that not warrant a re-roll of sorts. That is, one should reply to the partial patch series stating that there is a bug that renders this particular patch (series) un-usable and the re-roll could be posted as a reply to the original cover letter? >> Alternatively, or perhaps in addition to the list of message-ids, a list >> of URLs to public-inbox.org or gmane messages could also be provided for >> those who prefer to download patches via HTTP. > > At this point, I am a little disinterested in a discussion without code.
