OT: google groups bug, or worse?

    I'm concerned that google groups is not correctly reflecting the
    python lists. A month ago I announced the xsdbXML framework to the
    python list and the python-announce list. As you can see from the
    links
    below the python announce submission was approved by the moderators
    (thanks!)
    and the python list submission also went out, but the messages cannot
    be found at google groups.

    http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-announce-list/2004-December/003583.html

    Is it a google bug? Or is it something darker, like an anti-Python
    conspiracy at google?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    What did you google with? Is this it?
    http://groups-beta.google.com/group...ll defined infrastructure"&qt_s=Search Groups

    I.e., searching for one of the first lines in your references

    "The xsdbXML framework provides a flexible and well defined infrastructure"

    in google groups.

    You didn't post via Google, right? Just sent to the mailing list?

    I believe that Google knows nothing about mailing lists, but
    watches a news feed, so if the list/Usenet gateway failed to
    deliver those messages, Google would never see them.

    Furthermore, news delivery is not necessarily guaranteed.
    (Actually, I don't recall how reliable the protocol is,
    but I doubt it's foolproof.) If any one of the news
    servers between yours and Google's happened to drop some
    messages, it's quite possible Google would never see
    them.

    Given the "architecture" of Usenet, I wouldn't be surprised
    if Google missed messages consistently, a very small percentage
    of the time.
