There are a couple parts to this message.

Please read and respond.

In the last couple days there have been some new fixes added to the baseline that cleaned up a couple problems and sped things up quite nicely.

   Comparing two archives is complicated by the fact that each message is    marked by the time at which it's archived. Attached is a script that    standardizes that date, if weakly, useful for such comparisons.    

   Feed messages from an mbox into hypermail one at a time so as    to test the incremental mode of hypermail.

Scott's been busy. ;) Thanks Scott!

My checklist is getting a bit smaller.

I wanted to know what others still have outstanding that we need to wait on before a release ? Does anyone know about the issues below or other issues we should address before the release of 2.0 ???

Subject: Problem with incremental updates Message-ID: <>


        I'm having problems with incremental updates using the msg2archive.c program. I think the problem is thread.html(?) (index.html in my config) is being written the same as date.html - at least I can't find any differences between the two. Everything seems to work perfectly when using a mailbox as input, and all other views seem to look okay using stdin, but thread view is the same as date view.

My current setup:

RedHat 6.0
Sendmail 8.9.3
Listar 0.125a
Hypermail 2a24

Any ideas?

I don't suppose this just happened with 2b25, but I just happened to notice it (while trying out Peter McCluskey's new

8-bit characters encoded to 7-bits with MIME quoted-printable are getting decoded back to their 8-bit source, and pushed into the HTML view of the message in that form. I'm not sure of chapter and verse, but this isn't legal in HTML, is it? I thought 8-bit characters were supposed to be mapped into the &NNN; or &special-name; things for HTML.

As it is, what I see is what was intended with Netscape v4.51 on either NT or hp-ux, but I imagine some (compliant) browsers aren't going to like the particular mapping...

Is this an issue that should be addressed for v2?
