In your experience, that's enough to catch messages cross-posted to
several mailing lists?
If I understand correctly, -c will make mailpost sleep for that
time. Gmane receives quite a lot of messages, and I'm a bit wary of
"blocking" the mail delivery system in this manner. Could run out
of processes very easily...
Perhaps a different approach would be to spool messages, and then
have a cron job go over them every 30 seconds and do the cross-post
checking thing. On the other hand, waiting for half a minute to
deliver mail doesn't really appeal to me; I want stuff to be
delivered immediately. :-)
So, back to my original question -- would it be possible to hack up
something to retroactively cross-post an article, or would that just
break down all the invariants in inn?
