LLVM Server Back Up

Dear All,

The LLVM server is back online. If you find something that isn't working, please let me know.

Thanks for your patience.

Looks like some clocks are wrong, as shown by the timestamp
on <http://lists.cs.uiuc.edu/pipermail/llvmdev/2008-April/
013731.html>.

Cheers,
   Gabor

The LLVM server doesn't run the mailing list software, so it's not an llvm.org problem.

I think it's my laptop. I sent the mail from it, and it had AM/PM confused. It's fixed now.

FYI, the mailing lists are handled by separate UIUC servers and are not hosted by the llvm server. All web, svn, etc are on the llvm server.

John - Can you find out why the mailing list archives have incorrect time stamps?

I'm pretty sure it was my laptop. The time was correct: 11:28. The problem was that I sent it at 11:28 am and not 11:28 pm.

I'm guessing that the timestamp is whatever the email client said it was. Is this incorrect behavior?

-- John T.

Short answer:
There is no such thing as correct behaviour for mail. The only thing
that's really well-defined is the machinery that will make sure that the
mail will arrive, everything else is optional.

Long answer:
It depends on what the mail clients shows.
Usually it shows the Date: header, which IIRC is set by the mail client
and can be any timestamp.
Each mail forwarder adds a Received: header, which includes a timestamp
and which *should* be correct. The mailing list handling software is one
of the mail forwarders in the chain.
It's possible that the mailing list software should add a List-Date:
header, but I'm not sure whether such a convention exists or whether
mail readers use it (Thunderbird certainly won't, it ignores all List-*
headers); also, dcs-maillist.cs.uiuc.edu doesn't add List-Date:, and
it's unlikely they will replace their listmailer software for LLVM
(reconfiguring *might* be an option, provided such a thing as List-Date
exists).

Jo
