List reply in mutt

September 12th, 2009
email, tech  [html]
Mutt has a nice feature where when you have set it up properly, you can press 'L' for 'reply to list'. I use this a lot, but I'm on a good number of mailing lists and don't like that each time I need to go and add "subscribe listname@host.tld" to my ~/.muttrc. This is annoying. If you invoke 'reply to list' on a mailing list message that you've not marked in the ~/.muttrc, you get the error "no mailing lists found". So, given that such a high percentage of lists are listid setting gnu mailman lists, what if we replace that error logic with:
  1. if would raise 'no mailing lists found error' and
  2. if the message has a list id header and
  3. if the list id header contains an email address and
  4. if the email address is in the to, cc, reply-to, or from field then
  5. reply to list with that address otherwise
  6. raise the error as we were going to

git-subtrac: all your git submodules in one place

Long ago, I wrote git-subtree to work around some of my annoyances with git submodules. I've learned a lot since then, and the development ecosystem has improved a lot (shell scripts are no longer the best way to manipulate git repos? Whoa!). Thus, I …
