Gmane discussion about RSS feeds for mailing lists

Luistxo Fernandez 2004/05/27 15:48

Gmane. A great resource. They arhive mailing lists, and offer that content as searchable web pages or Usenet newsgroups. It's creator Lars is weighing the possibility to offer also RSS feeds, but he doesn't seem much convinced... After seeing the way another list archiving system, Mailbucket, uses to provide feeds (example feed for list ASRG ), Lars from Gmane says:

> Hm. I had imagined presenting excerpts or something, but these are > full mails. Does anybody really read mail in this manner? It seems > really... odd. >

My own opinion, was posted at Gmane.discuss and here it goes:

Yahoo provides the first 100 characters (quoted text left aside) of Yahoo Group messages in its almost hidden rss feed. Check this example for instance. offers no content in its feed, just the title line as this example for coreblog-en. That is a Mailman list that actually is being archived also at Gmane

I feel the YG feed is better than Mailbucket's and that Mailbucket's is better than's

However, the feeds provided by Google Groups 2 Beta are the best.

Each GoogleGroups 2 Beta has two feeds, one message per message, the other for threads. I would love Gmane to provide such a double feed. As a matter of fact, our basque Mailman mailing list being channeled to Gmane ( here ) and it is also being stored at Google Groups 2 Beta, just to provide another channel for potential readers:

This way, thanks to Mailman, Gmane and Google Groups 2 Beta we offer potential users all channels available from our archive page

And yes, there's people reading mailing lists through feed-readers...

bye bye Movable Type, hello Coreblog

The big affair with Movable Type, its new licenses and pricing structure, has ignited a debate in Internet. Many are weighting alternatives to MT to migrate their blogs to a free open environment... I think it could be a good moment to publicize Coreblog.

Here there are a couple of table comparisons for people willing to leave MT: one , two

Coreblog doesn't appear at those comparisons. Well, I leave this point here for comment... Maybe Atsushi at Webcore will take note.

If Coreblog had more users, we'd have a stronger community, and a stronger product as well.
