See Linux-Kernel Archive: By Thread as usual… but
The same thing a week later gives just a 200K file of zeroes, with no HTML at all…I’m sure there’s a rational explanation but the site which bears a mirror of the Linux Kernel Mail List which I scan regularly for news of the development of the Linux kernel had a “null” week. No HTML in the index.html file, just zeroes. I even checked it with a binary editor and wrote a snippet of PASCAL code to double check. There’s nothing there.
Now, I can see some script failing to download/copy/permission, etc. which could give a null result or even 404 but why a file of zero-bytes? A zeroed buffer unfilled is my best guess but this thing should have updated periodically or by polling and put something in there. Why did that not happen, for precisely one week? The last bug report for the application was August 2015… so it’s not as if this thing was broken for a new release. The version running is from June, 2006… The only relevant bug-report seems to be 5439 – Period setting for catch archive is fixed but that’s from 2003… It must have something to do with system administration. Oh well, it’s working again…
