       ah, so that's what those web listing sites are called  ;-)
          I guess I've run across these through Rootsweb, while
genealogically searching  ;-)

Hi :)
Do you remember Usenet newsgroups?  or even still use them?

Gmane is one of 3 main "front-ends" for this mailing list.  It presents all
the posts to the mailing lists in the way that posts were presented in
newsgroups.  You can probably use it to make new posts to the mailing list
or respond to previous ones.  It's VERY good at threading, often even
showing where threads sometimes go off on several different tangents.

Nabble is another front-end for this mailing list.  Nabble arranges the
posts into a structure a lot like a forum, with a pretty gui and nice&easy
for people to use.

The only way to really understand these things is to see them and maybe try
using them for a few posts.
Regards from
Tom :)

Hi :)
That is weird.  GMane is meant to work well with this mailing list.

In GMail Anne-ology's replies do appear to be part of the same
conversation/thread.  Gmail doesn't break it out into a new thread.  So
Gmail must be using the subject-line then surely?

Should we be posting a bug-report about this mailing list or about GMane?
Regards from
Tom :)

Most emails appear correctly threaded to me, using SeaMonkey (based on
Thunderbird). Some messages break threading, because those sending them
use a mail client which doesn't include the relevant headers.


All replies by anne-ology start a new thread (gmane on Thunderbird).
