#310 closed defect (fixed)

Compressed list archives unreadable

Reported by: dmorissette Owned by: sac@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: SysAdmin Keywords:


It has been reported, and I have verified that the compressed list archives on are unreadable. The .gz can be uncompressed, but the contents is not plain text as you'd expect.

To reproduce the issue, visit and try to download and open any of the .gz archives.

They seem to be doubly gzipped. Gunzip the gunzipped and you get the text at the end of a long path (/var/lib/mailman/archives/private/sac).

I can confirm the same problem occurs with archives of other lists like geos-devel or ggl

Would it be possible to fix it?

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Current list archives appear to be generated properly and extract using zcat to plain text as expected for at least and

Marking as resolved - if old broken archives have been stored elsewhere and need to be fixed, a new ticket should be opened for that purpose.
