Ruby Forum > Ruby Talk > comp.lang.ruby?

so it seems like Google created Ruby T. and anything posted to Ruby
Talk will post to comp.lang.ruby.

but then people replying on the comp.lang.ruby will not get the answer
through to the Ruby T. poster…

and then, Ruby Forum is even on top of Ruby T. and comp.lang.ruby…
so people replying in Ruby T. or comp.lang.ruby will not get the
answer through to Ruby Forum…

So… what is the good method? Start a new post in Ruby Forum so that
it can get to the biggest audience group. But then, check answers in
all 3 places?

I dont know but I rarely check on the mailing list these days with this
forum here available.

Looks like

Ruby Forum > ( Ruby T. = comp.lang.ruby )

posting to Ruby Forumwill post to all three

posting to Ruby T. or comp.lang.ruby will automatically post to the
other, but won’t go to Ruby Forum.

so if you ask a question here, there might be answer in comp.lang.ruby
waiting for you which you didn’t know about, unless you subscribe to
Ruby T. or comp.lang.ruby by email.

so if you want an answer or a new posting to get to the widest audience
group, always use Ruby Forum to post…

let’s see where it will get to…

there.
You are right. The only issue I am aware of ATM is that the news->email
gateway has some delays on the news side. We probably can’t do much
about it but you should be aware of this.

Kind regards

I’m pretty sure ruby-forum and ruby-talk are inter-changeable (so long
as
you’re subscribed) and I’d imagine with the ruby-talk <-> usenet gateway
that the same goes for usenet, though I’ve not seen messages marked as
from
there.

The gateway between Ruby T. and comp.lang.ruby ferries messages
both ways, so I don’t understand what you are saying here either.

Ruby-Forum is connected to the mailing list. All posts from the forum
are sent to the mailing list; the other way round is a bit more
difficult. The gateway was a bit flaky in this direction, and in case of
a temporary outage the mails from that period wouldn’t be processed
automatically when the software came back up. I’m importing all the
missing posts that have accumulated right now, which will be quite a
flood…

The good news is that I have completely rewritten the gateway software
today, it’s much more robust now, and I am confident that problems like
this won’t happen anymore. Sorry for the trouble.

Regards,
Andreas

So, can I assume that

Ruby T. == comp.lang.ruby ?

and then Ruby Forum post its messages to Ruby T./comp.lang.ruby
but never get the posts from there back to Ruby Forum?

Perhaps you should tell the ruby-forum maintainer to check for
possible problems, with the same info as you provided to James? For me
it seems to be a problem on their (receving) side (unless it’s settled
already).

It’s suppose to. There are a small percentage of messages that
aren’t gated, for practical reasons. But, on the whole, yes.

Can you point me at the message you are referring to so I can see
what happened to it? Thanks.

Here you go:

I see this message on Ruby T.:

http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/ruby-talk/269262

I also see it on comp.lang.ruby:

http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.ruby/msg/9c0b3b288942c147

Everything seems OK to me. Am I missing something?

so is it that Ruby T. was first created by Matz… and then Google
just makes a mirror of it?

Someone created the Google mirror, yes.

Where is the official place for Ruby T.?

What’s the source of them, do you know? Just a slow news provider?

I swear it wasn’t there before… maybe it’s the gateway slowness.
