hi wesley,

i got this email as wishlist bug, and it seems like you already
discussed that topic. i wonder why martin doesn't use upstream bts
tracker then?

please keep [email protected] in the Cc header, so that
the debian bts can record any discussion.

Package: lurker
Version: 1.2-3
Severity: wishlist

Would it be possible to add a function to display a single thread on
a single page, thus have one post follow another, kinda like the
forum thingies do... Otherwise I always find myself juggling with
too many tabs...

Here is some more info from personal communication:

I want the bodies there too! One after the other. Like web forums or

No frames, please! But yes, this functionality with a side pane
would be nice.

All in all, if you are going to read an entire thread, it's going to
be less bandwidth... so the option should probably be made available
somewhat hidden ;)

and the thread lines would not be needed, i think. work with
indentation of the boxes (one post per box), and allow boxes to be
collapsed (DHTML or ECMAscript, like gmail).

I thought lurker is a software of its own, not just Debian...

I would favour ECMAscript over DHTML anyway. But I think even CSS
can do this.

Not really. Do you need a machine? What are the requirements? How
much mail does this puppy spool?
