List-Archive URL for private archives broken
Last modified: 2009-03-31 05:30:11 EDT
Description of problem:
If you have a list with a private archive and you follow the mail header present
in the list mails
the URL does not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a mailing list.
2. Set its archive to private (`archive_private').
3. Try to browser the List-Archive URL.
4. Click the `[ Thread ]' button.
Message: No such list 2008-may
The right content.
The problem is on the public archive it is a regular directory where httpd
automatically gives a redirect with a trailing slash.
The private lists are handled by CGI /usr/lib/mailman/cgi-bin/private which does
not give such redirect.
The link from the listinfo page works fine as it has the trailing slash.
(1) The List-Archive mail header should also have the trailing slash.
(2) /usr/lib/mailman/cgi-bin/private should return the redirect.
Even 2.1.10 has the same bug. Will look into that.

the removal of the trailing slash seems to serve no purpose, after consultation with upstream I'll discard it
Created attachment 337282 [details]
a new patch: be better and cleaner: we don't care about the slash at all...
fixed in mailman-2.1.12-3.fc11
