- Another note regarding groups.io 40 posts per 30min limit -
My previous big series [5] involved 79 patches, and groups.io banned
me for some time after the 40th post. On [5] Laszlo suggested to test
the following git-send-email options to see if we can work with big
series and groups.io:
--batch-size=<num>
Some email servers (e.g. smtp.163.com) limit the number
emails to be sent per session (connection) and this will
lead to a failure when sending many messages. With this
option, send-email will disconnect after sending $<num>
messages and wait for a few seconds (see --relogin-delay)
and reconnect, to work around such a limit. You may want
to use some form of credential helper to avoid having to
retype your password every time this happens. Defaults to
the sendemail.smtpBatchSize configuration variable.
--relogin-delay=<int>
Waiting $<int> seconds before reconnecting to SMTP server.
Used together with --batch-size option. Defaults to the
sendemail.smtpReloginDelay configuration variable.
So I'm sending this series using git-publish [7] after setting the
following values:
$ git config sendemail.smtpBatchSize 33
$ git config sendemail.smtpReloginDelay 1848
Replying to self after 66 in an hour to verify that I'm not banned ... :)
