Question about llvm-dev's moderator?

Hi all,

Previously I sent a mail to llvm-dev. And I received following:

Is being held until the list moderator can review it for approval.

The reason it is being held:

Message body is too big: 130414 bytes with a limit of 100 KB

Either the message will get posted to the list, or you will receive
notification of the moderator's decision.

This is the first time I received this. I think the email I sent is not big . There is no pictures or anything would enlarge the size. All of the contents are texts.
And my question is what is the mechanism of list moderator?
What should I do? Should I cancel this email and reduce the size and send again? Since it is a reply mail, there are many contents belongs to others. I worries if it would affect others who prefer to use mail to work.

Thanks,
Chuanqi

Probably not a huge deal - it’ll probably get approved relatively quickly. But in the future/a thing to think about is pruning the quoted portions of an email to contain the relevant details to your reply/branch of the conversation, but not reams of mostly-unrelated quoted text.

Thank your reply very much!

You can try to cancel and reduce, but if you wait a bit I end up approving when it seems legit: I would get in touch with you if it was a very large image that you could downsample, or if you include a large zip archive or something like this, but a long thread with HTML/multi-parts answers can easily reach the limit.
(I think we should raise the limit by the way).

Hi,

luckily it is sent in https://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/llvm-dev/2021-August/152152.html.
I agree that we should raise the limitation since we could find that there is no graph or multi-parts in above links.

Thanks,

FWIW, I've forwarded this concern to the LLVM list administrators,
along with one I have as cfe-commits list moderator about the limit on
"too many recipients". Thank you for raising the concern!
