Re: Digest of test@documentfoundation.org issue 58 (247-271)

The previous guidance to use the command '[mailing list
 name]+get-[mailing list message number] is good for digest mode
 messages of small quantities of messages. However, the failure to add
 the message number to each message is not good. For example, the
 appearance of a recent 'discuss' digest-mode message is as follows:

 Topics (messages 7328 through 7339):

 Hello,
 ...

 In this example it would be easy to understand that the first message
 corresponds to message '7328'. However, this is weak when digest-mode
 messages contain many messages. For example, a recent digest-mode
 message for R shows the following initial contents:

 Send R-help mailing list submissions to
       [hidden email]

 To subscribe or unsubscribe via the World Wide Web, visit
       https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-help
 or, via email, send a message with subject or body 'help' to
       [hidden email]

 You can reach the person managing the list at
       [hidden email]

 When replying, please edit your Subject line so it is more specific
 than "Re: Contents of R-help digest..."

 Notice how each message in the digest-mode starts with the message number:

 ------------------------------

 Message: 30
 Date: Fri, 22 Jul 2011 08:55:54 -0700
 From: Peter Ehlers <[hidden email]>
 To: Bert Gunter <[hidden email]>
 Cc: "[hidden email]" <[hidden email]>,      marcel
       <[hidden email]>
 Subject: Re: [R] Lattice: place ticks only on y-axis
 Message-ID: <[hidden email]>
 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed
 ...

 Now if I wanted to retrieve message 30 is the LO mailing list manager,
 without the message number shown before each message, I would have to
 count manually where I think each message begins and ends, in order to
 retrieve the correct message, so I can reply and avoid breaking the
 message thread.

 If possible, please add the message number as the first line of each
 message in digest-mode.
