I was recently soundly castigated for "messing up the list threading" by
replying to digest items by just doing a cut and paste that preserved the
subject.  Someone on the list was kind enough to point me to:


Which provides a threaded web interface for a number of mailing lists including
this one (linux.centos.general on gmane).  I've been happy with the
functionality although not being able to just hit reply takes some of the
spontaneity out of list conversations.
