We need a newsgroup to discuss Pork, Dehydra, rewriting and static analysis projects
Where do such discussions currently happen? Have that outgrown that group, or are they considered offtopic? Is static-analysis a future-proof name? As in, is it possible or likely that you may end up wanting to talk about runtime code analysis tools (for example)? Gerv
The discussion mainly happens on #mmgc currently. We want a group so that people who are not mozilla hackers (GCC devs, etc) can have a place to discuss tools such as gcc-dehydra. And yes, the name is future-proof because we're explicitly limiting discussion to static analysis tools. Runtime analysis would be handled elsewhere.
Fair enough. Thanks for the clarification :-) Reassigning to justdave. Gerv
Emailed giganews for group, waiting for confirmation.

I assume this needs to be re-opened, with "waiting for Google" in the Whiteboard. :-) The group does not exist yet on Google Groups. <http://groups.google.com/group/mozilla.dev.static-analysis>
Dave, shouldn't this have been automatically created? I see it listed at https://lists.mozilla.org/newsgroups.txt but I'm not sure how to ping Google to read that file.
check the access logs and see if they've been hitting it recently. They usually hit it once daily, right about midnight pacific.
yup. (google ip) - - [05/Mar/2008:00:02:06 -0800] "GET /newsgroups.txt HTTP/1.1" 200 2621 They're hitting it, so if it was there this morning at midnight, something's broken.
I mailed Google to find out what's up.
Has any post been made to the newsgroup yet? I thought Google didn't start showing the group until somebody actually posted to it...
Looks like the Google Groups is up.
I posted a message to the list yesterday and it still hasn't shown up in the newsgroup.
I see two messages from you in both the newsgroup and the Google Group. <news://firstname.lastname@example.org> <news://email@example.com> You're probably experiencing this <http://groups.google.com/group/mozilla.support.thunderbird/msg/7d4dea05b5060a31>. If you close Thunderbird, and delete the mozilla.dev.static-analysis.msf file from your profile directory, that should fix it.
Message from today actually made it on the newsgroup. Looks like it's working.
I never heard back from Google, but it looks like it's all there and working now. The timing on when it started working is in line with when I mailed them so they probably just forgot to reply to say they fixed it.
