Hi --

Fingers crossed (bzw. Daumen halten) -- Dennis and I have just had an
intensive debugging session and it appears that the gateway is now
working.

I'm almost too superstitious to admit it's OK... but anyway, hopefully
not premature thanks to Dennis, daz, Dave, and all the other denizens
of the deep who have helped and kept the faith.

Please keep an eye out for problems, though, just in case there are
scenarios that still aren't working.


David

And I can even reply to messages that already exist! Yee-haw!

We are dying to know: what did you change? What was the problem?

Guillaume.

Well, premature or not, I'd just like to thank you guys for the
intense effort over the last few days. I lost track of the details a
while ago, but it was great to see the detective work in action.

Cheers,
Gavin

Hello Guillaume, hello ruby-talk, hello c.l.r,

<excuse>
The main problem was that I had almost no time to debug the problem
due to lots of work.
</excuse>

I'm not absolutely convinced that the problem is solved 100%. The bug
we solved today was that messages with an 'In-Reply-To'-header, but
without a 'References'-header were rejected by the NNTP host, because
it is a violation of the corresponding RFC. The solution was as simple
as the problem - adding a 'References'-header with the same msg-id as
the 'In-Reply-To'-header solved at least _this_ problem.

The reason why this went undetected for such a long time is that the
logging of the original rubygate script was quite limited, and in fact
it implied that the message went through, even if it didn't.
The other problem was that at the time David and I debugged the problem
for the first time it seemed like all of his postings appeared on the
local NNTP host, either because the problem was of a different nature at
that time, or because the Postings we checked were all valid ones.

I am quite sure that there are other scenarios which would prevent
postings go through to c.l.r, but either we will just not hit them, or
they will catch my attention due to the advanced logging i have now.

Anyway, I feel very sorry that I did not comment this problem in the
last days, and was not able to spend more time on it during the last
months (yes, months! *sigh*), because I usually do not like problems
accumulating to an unbearable state.

One Question which David brought up: I could re-feed the postings which
got lost because of the header-bug to the rubygate so they would
(at least I hope so!) finally appear on the newgroup, is there a general
need for that?

Kind regars,
Dennis Oelkers

Personally I don't feel that need but it might be good to have them on the
news side in order to give Google a chance to index them and complete its
thread storage of c.l.r.

Kind regards

robert

The only tool I trust in this kind of situation is tcpdump

The (Ruby) world is united once again! Lets rejoy!

Moin!

It's very great to finally have this fixed. Thanks for all the work you
guys did to solve this.

Sounds like a very good idea -- I'd love to see what I have missed.

Well done, top work, congratulations.

I would vote yes on this. Google does index ruby-talk at
http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/ruby/ruby-talk/, but, as has been mentioned,
there are advantages to the newsgroup mode.

Cheers,
Dave
