Description

On the left of individual messages is supposed threading. This one is obviously incomplete compared to the messages delivered to my mailbox (the entire thread):

https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-kde3/2019-08/msg00002.html claims no further messages. The rest of the thread's messages seem to be in a new thread, which is not the case, only caused by the change in month:
https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-kde3/2019-09/msg00000.html continues the thread with unbroken references in headers, including the OP 848bc5fd-75b9-b413-aa1e-c8e926b0736b@....

I've been stymied by artificial thread breaks by month to month transitions many times. :(

History

#1 Updated by pjessen about 1 year ago

  • Subject changed from please stop the list archive threading lies to the list archive does not work with threads that span multiple months.
  • Category set to Email
  • Assignee set to opensuse-admin
  • Private changed from Yes to No

It would appear our current mail archiving software (mhonarc) does not deal correctly with a thread spanning two months. I agree this is unfortunate.

#2 Updated by bmwiedemann 6 months ago

https://lwn.net/Articles/638472/ suggests that https://gitlab.com/mailman/hyperkitty might support displaying threads across months.

#3 Updated by hellcp 2 months ago

  • Parent task set to #19900

Will be fixed with move to hyperkitty
