Thanks. (And thank you to T. Klausner for sending the original,
unformatted PR to me.)
I see a README-NOT-UPDATING file says "These mail archives are no longer
being updated. We are fully aware of this problem and are working on it."
(Aug. 14, 1999)
So in this case (since the PR was a couple years old), it was available
note that one can also send email to firstname.lastname@example.org (or used to be
able to; i've not done this for years) with query-pr(1) arguments in the
Subject: line. eg:
Subject: --full 7366
will get that PR. sending `--help' in the subject should return a help
lists of all available commands (some query-pr(1) arguments are not
available via the email interface.)
