[REBOL] Indexing the Mailing List -- an update

From: SunandaDH:aol at: 12-Jun-2006 4:27

About two years back there were some messages on the ML about producing an index of the Mailing List{85B062 C981ACA0A2DBFA70C0CCDF16971C4B1038} As I think we all realise by now from experience with RT, just because things go quiet on a REBOL-related subject doesn't mean nothing is happening. The Tag Team is proud to announce the completion of the first stage of the Tagging!!! **** Every thread on the ML archive has been eyeballed by hand (and / or some semi-automated tools) and many threads have been tagged as to their "purpose" / semantic content (whatevs). Those tags enable us to publish the Topic index.... which is a structured way of browsing the ML archive. Along with the other indexes (by date, author, subject) and the full-word search, this helps turn the ML archive from a 75-meg pile of words into a rich resource. *** Note also when you are viewing a thread, you may see a navigation bar that offers you related messages, eg the "see also" on this sample message: *** You can also use the tag groupings to refer people to collections of threads on a specific subject, eg: For more discussions on favorite text editors, see: *** Much praise is due to the main tag team members for quietly chugging along and adding the tags: Christian Ensel who pioneered the effort, and then Peter Wood who stepped in and did nearly 50% of the total. *** There's sill work to be done -- mainly reviewing the indexes for consistency. And there are still seats on the Tag Team if anyone has a few moments to lend a hand. Sunanda.
