This bug reply: Re: kern/55179: ipfilter ip_state.c's problem
For anyone wondering what happened in this reply:
- GNATS can't recognize the response as a reply because it starts with
a UTF-8 charset encoding and is base64 (=?UTF-8?B?...)
First I edited the subject line to be not-base64 and bounced it to
- The text is base64-MIME, which GNATS also can't parse and also mangles,
so I swapped it for the plaintext extracted by my mail client.
- GNATS can't handle non-ASCII whitespace, so I had to iconv and swap
it out for ASCII equivalents.
Conclusion: GNATS bad, and non-ASCII spaces are a quick way to make it
fail. It would be nice if at least the web server didn't force
non-UTF-8, but not the real concern because we mangle the mail even
