|One additional thing to keep in mind is that our flightgear-commitlogs<br/>
mailing list has a maximum message size configured to 160Kb. Messages<br/>
larger than this get sent over to the list moderator. That may be why some<br/>
of these messages are delayed. I mentioned this to Torsten offline and it<br/>
sounded like he had some ideas for ensuring that extra long diffs get<br/>
trimmed to a reasonable size for a mailing list.

|Both the post-commit-email and<br/>
git-multimail scripts have an option for this (hooks.emailmaxlines and<br/>
multimailhook.emailMaxLines respectively). Maybe 10,000 lines would<br/>
be a good limit? The interesting part of the diff might be preceded<br/>
by a lot of 'noise', especially if multiple files are touched, so long<br/>
messages are not a bad thing. And as this is a read-only list, users<br/>
won't be attaching large binary files to their messages. So would it<br/>
be good, in addition to setting these line limits, to increase the<br/>
size limit a little? It will be hard to match line number to a KB<br/>
number, so it might save admins from having to check and accept<br/>
messages via the Mailman web interface. It could be a good long term<br/>
time saver.<br/>

|The default mailman option is 40kb, so we have doubled the allowable size<br/>
twice now. :-) I don't have a big emotional attachment to the current<br/>
limit, but I suspect that it's starting to get close to being big enough.<br/>
I don't think too many people are going to spend the time to review a 160Kb<br/>
diff in an email browser ... at that point there are probably better tools<br/>
for evaluating the differences. I think Torsten is planning to experiment<br/>
with limiting the message sizes as a first step. But going forward we can<br/>
certainly tune the numbers on both the sending side and the mailing list<br/>
side and move towards a more optimal balance.
