Description

https://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org says:

There is also an RSS feed and a mailing list for those interested.

The URL is http://lists.bbpress.org/mailman/listinfo/bbdev, which redirects to a 404 page: https://bbpress.org/mailman/listinfo/bbdev.

Any chance to revive that mailing list? Having an archive like that in Gmail is quite handy as a quick search tool.

There are active "firehose" lists for WordPress and BuddyPress, but not for bbPress. There were bb-trac and bbdev in the past, but the latest activity in both is from 2009.

@Otto42 Is this something you'd have time to look into?

No idea where to even start. We retired all the mailing lists years ago. I never subbed to the bb one, so didn't know it existed.

You'd probably have to ask systems what servers those were on and where the content for the archives lived, to see if the data is still around anywhere. Mailman isn't hard, but finding the data in the first place would be the tricky part, since it was not in our main DBs.

  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

Just noting that I've removed the link from bbpress.trac.wordpress.org to the defunct mailing list.

This ticket is now an enhancement request for a mailing list, if one is really needed (Moving bbPress to Github for example could mean it's not needed, etc)

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
