Hey all, I've been busy with public-inbox work this year.
I started working on a read-only IMAP/IMAPS server, and I expect to eventually host a v2 copy, too; and hopefully
other folks get interested in mirroring.

For now, you can access git@vger archives through 8 IMAP
mailboxes sliced into ~50K messages to not overload clients.
They go from 0..7, with 7 being the most recent:


When more messages show up,
should exist.

I've tested with mutt, offlineimap and mbsync (isync).

It's not yet complete (when is software ever?), but it's a
usable start, I think.  Some more info about it over on
And maybe JMAP is coming, too...
