I note that the Digest for this list is running several days behind, in
a rather strange way. Yesterday (Saturday) greatcircle emitted a Digest
(V10 #183) consisting of messages from the previous Tuesday, including
Brent's explanation which I had assumed by now must have been dropped in
the changeover. This morning (Sunday) there arrives another digest (V10
#184) containing only messages from last Wednesday. An inspection of the
half-functioning Archives shows me that messages were also posted on
Thursday and Saturday, but are not present in this morning's Digest.
What's puzzling is that whether Digests are emitted daily or "on volume,"
one would have expected these some days ago.
Configuring Mj2 digests is an arcane art, lemme tell ya. There are so many
things you can set -- maximum age of oldest post, minimum age of newest
post, maximum size, minimum size, whether each permitted run generates a
single digest or how many it takes to clear the queue, hours at which
digests can be generated -- that one really has to work the combinations
till one finds one that works for the list.
