not that I am aware of...not muc.*...but there is another gateway:
-> A lot of our mailing lists can be browsed as newsgroups, in the
-> linux.debian.* hierarchy. This can also be done using a web
-> interface such as Google Groups or Gmane.
gmane (http://gmane.org) claims to leave original Message-ID: and
Reference: headers intact. I am unable to experiment with it by
starting my newsreader on nntp://news.gname.org because I don't run
any nntp server-type software. My ISP's nntp server subscribes [me]
to the bofh.it gateway (which does rewrite those headers).
This recent thread on debian-devel has some discussion about posting
news2mail using the gmane gateway.
I wonder if using gmane to post back to mail munges headers _at all_,
since that would presumably bork PGP signed mails/articles?
I feel someone should contact Marco d'Itri who runs the bofh.it
gateway, and ask his opinion about automating that small message about
the gateway being Read-Only. I am happy to do this (in the next week
or two) and get back to the list. How does that sound?
I don't know what, if anything, to do about posting a similar
automated message to gmane.
