Asheesh: Sounds like you got a feature request for Debexpo!


Currently we got a list of "unanswered" list emails at [1]; though it has a couple of issues (not limited to it not updating regularly). It also creates a number of false-positives (e.g. "nanoblogger-extra" was also handled in the reply to the "nanoblogger" email, but detecting this is non-trivial).

I can try to extend this script to be more suited for this purpose.

So I have no idea why this script isn't running properly.

/me looks into it

Oh, hey, I fixed it. It'll run every night and update now. The problem was that my cron job called "make -q" not "make --quiet".

I think that, as far as false positives: we should just reply to all the messages. For better or for worse, people will look at mailing list archives and get a feel for what our community is like. (That's my opinion, anyway.)

It's clear to me that the source code to this cron job should be somewhere public. Let's see...

Okay, published: http://gitorious.org/debian-mentors-mailing-list-summary/debian-mentors-mailing-list-summary

Anyway -- that's all for that from me for now!

A tall, dark stranger will have more fun than you.
