overview
--------

    public-inbox uses Message-ID identifiers in URLs.
    One may look up messages by substituting Message-IDs
    (without the leading '<' or trailing '>') into the URL.
    Forward slash ('/') characters in the Message-IDs
    need to be escaped as "%2F" (without quotes).

    Thus, it is possible to retrieve any message by its
    Message-ID by going to:

	$base_url<Message-ID>/

	(without the '<' or '>')

    Message-IDs are described at:

	$WIKI_URL/Message-ID

EOF

	# n.b. we use the Xapian DB for any regeneratable,
	# order-of-arrival-independent data.
	my $srch = $ibx->search;
	if ($srch) {
		$$txt .= <<EOF;
search
------

    This public-inbox has search functionality provided by Xapian.

    It supports typical AND, OR, NOT, '+', '-' queries present
    in other search engines.

    We also support search prefixes to limit the scope of the
    search to certain fields.

    Prefixes supported in this installation include:

EOF
		_srch_prefix($srch, $txt);

		$$txt .= <<EOF;

    Most prefixes are probabilistic, meaning they support stemming
    and wildcards ('*').  Ranges (such as 'd:') and boolean prefixes
    do not support stemming or wildcards.
    The upstream Xapian query parser documentation fully explains
    the query syntax:

	$QP_URL

message threading
-----------------

    Message threading is enabled for this public-inbox,
    additional endpoints for message threads are available:

    * $base_url<Message-ID>/T/#u

      Loads the thread belonging to the given <Message-ID>
      in flat chronological order.  The "#u" anchor
      focuses the browser on the given <Message-ID>.

    * $base_url<Message-ID>/t/#u

      Loads the thread belonging to the given <Message-ID>
      in threaded order with nesting.  For deep threads,
      this requires a wide display or horizontal scrolling.

    Both of these HTML endpoints are suitable for offline reading
    using the thread overview at the bottom of each page.

    Users of feed readers may follow a particular thread using:

    * $base_url<Message-ID>/t.atom

      Which loads the thread in Atom Syndication Standard
      described at Wikipedia and RFC4287:

	$WIKI_URL/Atom_(standard)
	https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4287

      Atom Threading Extensions (RFC4685) is supported:

	https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4685

    Finally, the gzipped mbox for a thread is available for
    downloading and importing into your favorite mail client:

    * $base_url<Message-ID>/t.mbox.gz

    We use the mboxrd variant of the mbox format described
    at:

	$WIKI_URL/Mbox
