No. People consistently sign up to digests and then reply to them, spamming the list with a day's worth of messages for a second time and blowing away any hope of threading. You can get a feed from http://grokbase.com/group/[EMAIL PROTECTED] (which being a Catalyst-powered site is probably going to archive this list pretty much indefinitely :) or you can configure your mail setup to siphon the messages off into a folder. Both approaches will give you all the advantages of digests without leaving us with the traffic/noise disadvantages. A mailing list lives and dies by the quality of its postings (and for every one digest user there are dozens more people searching the archives), so disabling digests was a conscious choice to optimise for signal/noise ratio. If you don't have a useful mail client and don't want to take a feed, I have a (somewhat hacky) script I use to handle sorting that needs nothing but an IMAP connection to talk down (and some perl :); I'll send a copy on request. -- Matt S Trout Need help with your Catalyst or DBIx::Class project?
