Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 171567
mailto: links in archives incorrect
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:15 EST
See http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-mtd/2005-October/013960.html and
Observe the mailto: links at the top of each:
In each case, the In-Reply-To: header specified in the mailto: link is actually
the In-Reply-To: header of the mail being displayed. But if the reader wants to
reply, their In-Reply-To: header should actually be the Message-Id: of the mail
being displayed, not the same as its In-Reply-To: header.
Created attachment 120286 [details]
This fixes the In-Reply-To: header, and also fixes the fact that the '<' and
'>' signs were being stripped from it before. It also fixes the Subject header
of the reply to contain 'Re: '.
However, I'm not sure it'll behave correctly in the case where the Message-Id:
is absent from the archived mail. There's a special case for In-Reply-To:
being empty, but not for Message-Id:. That doesn't affect me since I don't let
any messages without a Message-Id into my system anyway.
Also, the addition of 'Re:' would need to be done in all languages if we do it
this way. We only strip 'Re:' from subject lines when we archive, so if that's
done in other languages we'll repeat it ad infinitum if people keep replying
through the archives without fixing it up manually.
Stripping of "Re:" in other languages has always been a problem. Did you submit
your patch upstream to http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=103&atid=300103 ??
Upstream bug tracker:
This patch appears to be applied locally to FC-4 and above.
We'll be closing this bug next week as it's targetting a version of Fedora Core
that is no longer maintained. If you'd like to keep this open to aid in
tracking upstream's progress, please take it out of NEEDINFO and move it forward
to a current release.
