;; Also know as the "wish list".  Some are done. For the others, no
;; promise when to be implemented.

* gnus-topic-kill-region
  From Colin Marquardt <colin.marquardt@usa.alcatel.com>
  
  I noticed that when re-arranging topics, C-k yanks a topic just fine
  (runs gnus-topic-kill-group).

  However, my habit is to do marking and the yanking the region, so I
  would run C-w on the marked topic. But C-w runs
  gnus-group-kill-region and doesn't yank the topic (for groups it
  works fine).

  So could we have a gnus-topic-kill-region, or a
  gnus-group-kill-region which handles topics as well?

* Speed up sorting in summary buffer if there is a limit.
  
  Suggested by Daniel Ortmann <ortmann@isl.net>.

* Investigate the memory usage of Gnus. 

  But it does seem strange that Gnus would use some 15meg for this.  I
  think that is worth investigating.  I suspect that bugs or bad
  design are causing waste; they could be in Gnus, or in Emacs. -- RMS

* Google group digest
  
  The result of Google group search return a thread. Is it a digest
  format?

* NOV caching.
  
  Implement NOV caching with Gnus Agent.

* Multiple charsets for topic names.
  
  [Done]

* Allow specification of server in Newsgroups header
  
  [Kai wrote]

  WIBNI I could put `Newsgroups: nntp+quimby:bla' into a message and
  Gnus would know to post this message on my server `nntp:quimby' into
  the group bla?  I think this would be way cool.

  But Gnus would have to rewrite the Newsgroups header before actually
  sending the posting.

  Thanks for Micha Wiedenmann for this suggestion.

* Understand mail-user-agent. Maybe gnus-mail-user-agent.
  
  [Done]

* Emphasis delimiters show when `W W c'.

  [Fixed]

* Parsing of the common list confirmation requests so that Gnus can
   prepare the response with a single command.  Including LISTSERV
   periodic ping messages and the like.

* Parsing of the various List-* headers to enable automatic commands
   like "send help message," "send unsubscribe message," and the like.

   [done, see gnus-ml.el]

* Parsing of the subscription notice to stash away details like what
   address you're subscribed to the list under (and automatically send
   mail to the list using that address, when you send mail inside the list
   group), what address to mail to unsubscribe, and the list info message
   if available.  Hitting the "get FAQ" command inside a mailing list
   group should display that stashed copy of the info message.

* Some help in coming up with good split rules for mailing lists, as
   automated as possible.  Splitting on To and Cc is almost always not
   what I want, since it can misfile messages and since if I'm cc'd on
   list mail I want to get both copies, one in my personal mailbox and one
   in the list mailbox.  I know other people handle it other ways, but I
   prefer it that way.  Accordingly, some way to semi-automatically
   generate split rules based on Sender, Mailing-List, Return-Path,
   X-Loop, and all of the other random headers that often work would be
   very cool.

* Support for zipped folders for all backends this makes sense for.
  Most likely using jka-compr. (It has been suggested that this do
  work but I think it should be verified for all backends.)

* Support for RFC2015, PGP-MIME. Probably has to involve the people in
  the Mailcrypt project.

  [done]

* Agent (Can someone write some subtopics here? I don't use it myself
  so I don't know what is lacking.)

* Support for encrypted folders. Even if the mail arrives unencrypted
  Gnus should be able to encrypt the *folder* for added safety. This
  should go for both Gnus' own folders and the folders Gnus reads from
  (e.g. /var/spool/mail/${USER}). All backends this makes sense for.

  [John Wiegley's article <200011030445.VAA08277@localhost.dynodns.net>,
   posted on gnu.emacs.gnus does this.
   Also, gnus-article-encrypt `K E' encrypts the article body.]

* The stuff on "Newest Features" in the manual should be implemented
  and the node updated (it maybe is?).

* Splitting .newsrc.eld so the history is in one file and the
  configuration is in another. To help those that reads at two
  locations (e.g. work and home) and want to have the same
  configuration.

* gnus-uu-decode should complain if one or more parts of a series post
  (ie, "part N of X") is missing, and optionally tick what parts are
  there for decoding in a later session.

* Additional article marking, and an ability to affect marks placed
  during e.g. mail acquisition.  I want to be able to notice the
  subject "fast money" or "web traffic", automatically mark it with a
  `$', and score it into oblivion.  (But I fear that wanting to change
  marks with mail-source-* and nnmail-* functions will represent a
  philosophical conflict with the rest of Gnus' management of article
  marks.  mail-source-* and nnmail-* currently hack around with files
  under ~/Mail and leave traces in ~/Mail/active, but don't affect
  things stored in .newsrc.eld.)

* A much better interface to nnmail-split-methods.  I don't know how
  I'd like this done, but I know that the current method of manually
  hacking regexps is pretty untenable for new users.  My boss, who is
  tenured faculty at CMU and CEO & CTO at JPRC, and whose research
  work has involved Lisp for the last 25 years, is trying to implant
  himself in a Gnus mail environment, and this is a big sticking point
  even for him.

* PGP-supported encryption of entire nnml & nnmh groups.  There are
  people with whom I exchange mail routinely who don't send w/PGP, but
  I'd really rather that the content not be left lying around
  unencrypted.  Hook into article acquisition the way jka-compr
  supposedly does, to auto-decrypt every message read.

  [See Support for encrypted folders.]

* Baby's First Mail In Gnus.  Some set of functions that the
  new-to-mail-in-Gnus user can invoke which will query the user
  appropriately for the basic information required to establish mail
  handling, leaving the appropriate traces in .gnus.  Perhaps a
  customize buffer would be appropriate.
  - Where does your mail come from?
  - If some server, what is your POP/IMAP protocol identity?
  - What is your identity when sending mail, as opposed to posting to
    Usenet?
  - Here are some basic concepts of mail groups (list a few:
    personal mail, company-wide mail, mailing lists, garbage dumps,
    receptacles for outbound copies of what one sends; which ones do
    you want to instantiate, and what mail should land in each?
    [/viz./ problem of nnmail-split-methods interface.]

* Full integration of nnir into Gnus.  Generic hooks for adding new
  external nnir sources.  I use a couple experimental, in-house tools
  (JPRC is a research lab, occupied with document analysis and machine
  learning) and adding new search engines to nnir by hacking the main
  nnir.el module is rather clunky.

* Manual ordering of articles in an nnml folder.

  That is, keystrokes to move articles (or whole threads) up or down
  in the *Summary* buffer relative to the other articles.  The order
  would be persistent (e.g., across gnus sessions).

  With this ability, an nnml folder would make for a good to-do list.

* Since many uses Gnus to store to do lists I think it is time for an
  nntodo. (I know Kai already written one, maybe use that for a start?)

* nnsql backend, which would allow messages or folders to be imported
  in a local (My|Postgre|?)SQL RDBMS.

* "posting profiles" ideally accessible from a popup menu; allowing
  choice between predefined profiles of
  from,name,organization,etc. Example: I'm at home, but need to reply
  to a work mail; i can hit 'R', then use this command to switch to my
  'work' profile for purposes of this one reply. (This might already
  be possible with current Gnus, but I don't think so.)

* Better handling of the mail retrieving / splitting feature:
  - the variables <backend>-get-new-mail should not exist anymore. Mail
    retrieving should be a separate matter.
  - we should be able to split mails to groups AND backends at the same time.
  - meanwhile, we should still be able to associate certain mail sources with
    certain backends.

* A better interface to the agent download scoring rules, like the one
  for the other scoring rules.

* Editing of messages in the agents cache.

* More article marks (like '!' or '?').
  Maybe user defined marks that can be displayed as any choosen charakter,
  so one could do things like limiting on, to do whatever one likes with
  these articles.

* A possibility to add notes to messages. If thouse could include links
  to other (stored) messages this would be very practical.

* A nnfolder like backend with .overview files.
  This would not only speed up things, but also allow nnir to work on it.

  [done]

* Allow article editing in groups which do not support it, but
  emulating it via deleting the old article and entering the new one
  into the group.  This would be very useful to support `T ^' (say) in
  nnimap groups.

* Allow user to specify which kinds of groups should be displayed.
  For example, I want to display all the groups that are displayed
  now, plus those which have cached messages in them.  (Gnus does
  display those with ticked messages but not those with
  cached-but-unticked ones.)  This would become even more important
  when we allow labels.

* Go through the todo list and remove items already done.

* Create new data type `article identifier' and use that instead of
  article numbers.  A first implementation could offer something like
  (num . 4711) but this could be extended.  This would be useful for
  using servers with *really* large numbers -- there we could have a
  bignum type.  It might also be useful for the nnweb and nnultimate
  thingies where article identifiers are not really numbers.

* Allow use of digests to keep related articles.  Normally, you use
  groups to group together articles which are thematically related.
  But sometimes, you have so many themes that this becomes
  impractical.  WIBNI I could have digests in a group, and there was a
  way to add a new article to one of the digests in that group?

  Or maybe what I really want is a way to tell Gnus that a specific
  thread should always be hidden (as in `T h') by default, while most
  other threads are not hidden by default.  Hm.

* New backend between nnfolder and nnml: have more than one article
  per file, but more than one file per group.  With .overview files.

  [done. nnfolder has .overview.  Backward- and forward-compatible
   between 1.0 and 2.0. (setq nnfolder-nov-is-evil t) disables the
   feature]

* .overview files for nnfolder?
  
  [done]

* New backend nnbabylfolder.  There is also nnbabyl which is like
  nnmbox but uses babyl format, but there is no babyl format
  equivalent of nnfolder.

* Make movement commands in summary buffer independent of `move after
  mark' behavior when marking articles.  Currently, if you don't want
  `E' to move to the next unread article, you have to set
  gnus-summary-goto-unread to nil, and then there is no way to move to
  the next or previous unread article.

  This one has two sub-tasks.  Providing the commands is one thing,
  finding out useful key bindings for them is another.  I think we
  could provide the commands first while not changing the behavior of
  the key bindings; then different people can experiment with
  different key binding schemes until we find something which suits
  many people.

* `Move to next/previous/first article' is a misnomer, since ticked
  articles are also unread but not moved to by these commands.  Should
  the terminology be fixed or the documentation, or what?

* Allow sorting of threads by newest article rather than by root of
  thread.  Consider the following thread structure:

    root1       Jan 1
      leaf1     Jan 4
    root2       Jan 2
      leaf2     Jan 3

  These two threads are sorted this way because root1 is older than
  root2.  I want an option to sort them the other way round because
  leaf1 is newer than leaf2.

* Improve editing of MIME messages.  I would like to use html-mode to
  edit the body of a text/html message, and enriched-mode for
  text/enriched messages, and so on.  This should go for multipart
  messages as well.  This is probably a hard one since Emacs currently
  does not allow several major modes per buffer.  But maybe it would
  be nice to hack Emacs to provide this infrastructure so that Gnus
  can make use of it?  This would also make it possible to provide
  nifty commands for editing the headers, for example, rather than
  relying on commands which do the same thing everywhere.
  message-x.el is really just a half-assed attempt at doing it, and
  while it is useful, that's not the way it should be done.

  I think Francisco Potort,Al(B already did something like this?

* Provide commands for editing MML tags.  For example, there could be
  a command mml-add-tag-attribute which prompts me for an attribute
  name (with completion, from the set filename, type, ...), and then
  for a value.  (This is like `C-c +' in psgml.)  Or there could be a
  command which showed me all the attributes in an MML tag and allows
  me to use TAB to move between them, and then to edit each attribute
  value.  (This is like `C-c C-a' in psgml.)

* Have Gnus automagically set group parameters for mailing list
  groups.  For example, if I have a splitting rule that automatically
  sorts ding@gnus.org into mail.ding, then Gnus should clue in, set
  the to-list parameter to 'ding@gnus.org', and set total-expire.
  (This is probably Hard (TM).  And of course the user should be able
  to configure what parameters exactly get set.)

* Along the same lines, automagically detect broken reply-to's.  (But
  don't auto-detect users legitimately setting a reply-to header that
  points back to the list.)

* Make it easier to change parameters on a set of groups,
  e.g. set/clear gcc-self on process-marked groups.

* Make it easier/possible to migrate between primary select-methods,
  if that concept is going to be kept.  Right now I have only one
  group on my primary server, and I'd kind of like to change from nntp
  to nnml, but apparently this doesn't work well.

* Make it possible to refer to uniquely-named groups without
  select-method prefix (e.g. mail.misc instead of nnml:mail.misc).

* Allow a user-defined picons directory for personal groups.

* Annotations as discussed last autumn. Be able to make comments to
  articles for all bakends. The comments amybe should go into a
  seperate "backend", like nndraft.

* Catchup on a topic and all its subtopics. I.e. do "c y" when on a
  topic line in *Group*.

* Better/more advanced subject washing in *Summary*, see my
  js-gnus-simplify-subject-function I posted earlier this winter.

;; From Newest Features node. Some are not done.

* I would like the zombie-page to contain an URL to the source of the
latest version of gnus or some explanation on where to find it.

*  A way to continue editing the latest Message composition.

*  I like the option for trying to retrieve the FAQ for a group and
 I was thinking it would be great if for those newsgroups that had
 archives you could also try to read the archive for that group.
 Part of the problem is that archives are spread all over the net,
 unlike FAQs.  What would be best I suppose is to find the one
 closest to your site.

 In any case, there is a list of general news group archives at
 ftp://ftp.neosoft.com/pub/users/claird/news.lists/newsgroup_archives.html

*      From: Jason L Tibbitts III <tibbs@hpc.uh.edu>
      (add-hook 'gnus-select-group-hook
	(lambda ()
	  (gnus-group-add-parameter group
	     (cons 'gnus-group-date-last-entered (list (current-time-string))))))

      (defun gnus-user-format-function-d (headers)
	"Return the date the group was last read."

*  tanken var at n,Ae(Br du bruker `gnus-startup-file' som prefix (FOO)
 til ,Ae(B lete opp en fil FOO-SERVER, FOO-SERVER.el, FOO-SERVER.eld,
 kan du la den v,Af(Bre en liste hvor du bruker hvert element i listen

* LMI> Well, nnbabyl could alter the group info to heed labels like
 LMI> answered and read, I guess.

 It could also keep them updated (the same for the Status: header of
 unix mbox files).

 They could be used like this:

      `M l <name> RET' add label <name> to current message.
      `M u <name> RET' remove label <name> from current message.
      `/ l <expr> RET' limit summary buffer according to <expr>.

      <expr> would be a boolean expression on the labels, e.g.

      `/ l bug & !fixed RET'

 would show all the messages which are labeled `bug' but not labeled
 `fixed'.

 One could also imagine the labels being used for highlighting, or
 affect the summary line format.

* Sender: abraham@dina.kvl.dk

 I'd like a gnus-find-file which work like find file, except that it
 would recognize things that looks like messages or folders:

 - If it is a directory containing numbered files, create an nndir
 summary buffer.

 - For other directories, create a nneething summary buffer.

 - For files matching "\\`From ", create a nndoc/mbox summary.

 - For files matching "\\`BABYL OPTIONS:", create a nndoc/baby
 summary.

 - For files matching "\\`[^ \t\n]+:", create an *Article* buffer.

 - For other files, just find them normally.

 I'd like `nneething' to use this function, so it would work on a
 directory potentially containing mboxes or babyl files.

* Please send a mail to bwarsaw@cnri.reston.va.us (Barry A. Warsaw)
 and tell him what you are doing.

* Currently, I get prompted:

 decend into sci?  - type y decend into sci.something ?  - type n
 decend into ucd?

 The problem above is that since there is really only one
 subsection of science, shouldn't it prompt you for only descending
 sci.something?  If there was a sci.somethingelse group or section,
 then it should prompt for sci? first the sci.something? then
 sci.somethingelse?...

* Ja, det burde v,Af(Bre en m,Ae(Bte ,Ae(B si slikt.  Kanskje en ny variabel?
 `gnus-use-few-score-files'?  S,Ae(B kunne score-regler legges til den
 "mest" lokale score-fila.  F. eks. ville no-gruppene betjenes av
 "no.all.SCORE", osv.

* What i want is for Gnus to treat any sequence or combination of
 the following as a single spoiler warning and hide it all,
 replacing it with a "Next Page" button:

 ^L's

 more than n blank lines

 more than m identical lines (which should be replaced with button
 to show them)

 any whitespace surrounding any of the above

* Well, we could allow a new value to `gnus-thread-ignore-subject' -
 `spaces', or something.  (We could even default to that.)  And then
 subjects that differ in white space only could be considered the
 "same" subject for threading purposes.

* Modes to preprocess the contents (e.g. jka-compr) use the second
 form "(REGEXP FUNCTION NON-NIL)" while ordinary modes (e.g. tex)
 use the first form "(REGEXP . FUNCTION)", so you could use it to
 distinguish between those two types of modes. (auto-modes-alist,
 insert-file-contents-literally.)

*  Under XEmacs - do funny article marks: tick - thumb tack killed -
 skull soup - bowl of soup score below - dim light bulb score over
 - bright light bulb

* Yes. I think the algorithm is as follows:

      Group-mode

	 show-list-of-articles-in-group
	      if (key-pressed == SPACE)
		      if (no-more-articles-in-group-to-select)
			      if (articles-selected)
				      start-reading-selected-articles;
			      junk-unread-articles;
			      next-group;
		       else
			      show-next-page;

	       else if (key-pressed = '.')
		      if (consolidated-menus)         # same as hide-thread in Gnus
			      select-thread-under-cursor;
		      else
			      select-article-under-cursor;


      Article-mode
	      if (key-pressed == SPACE)
		      if (more-pages-in-article)
			      next-page;
		      else if (more-selected-articles-to-read)
			      next-article;
		      else
			      next-group;

* My precise need here would have been to limit files to Incoming*.
 One could think of some `nneething-only-files' variable, but I
 guess it would have been unacceptable if one was using many
 unrelated such nneething groups.

 A more useful approach would be to, in response to the `G D'
 prompt, be allowed to say something like: `~/.mail/Incoming*',
 somewhat limiting the top-level directory only (in case
 directories would be matched by the wildcard expression).

* It would be nice if it also handled

 <URL:news://sunsite.auc.dk/>

 which should correspond to `B nntp RET sunsite.auc.dk' in *Group*.

 [done]

*    Take a look at w3-menu.el in the Emacs-W3 distribution - this
 works out really well.  Each menu is 'named' by a symbol that
 would be on a gnus-*-menus (where * would be whatever, but at
 least group, summary, and article versions) variable.

 So for gnus-summary-menus, I would set to '(sort mark dispose ...)

 A value of '1' would just put _all_ the menus in a single 'GNUS'
 menu in the main menubar.  This approach works really well for
 Emacs-W3 and VM.

*  nndoc should take care to create unique Message-IDs for all its
 articles.

*  gnus-score-followup-article only works when you have a summary
 buffer active.  Make it work when posting from the group buffer as
 well.  (message-sent-hook).

*  rewrite gnus-demon to use run-with-idle-timers.

*  * Enhancements to Gnus:

 Add two commands:

 * gnus-servers (gnus-start-server-buffer?)-enters Gnus and goes
 straight to the server buffer, without opening any connections to
    servers first.

 * gnus-server-read-server-newsrc-produces a buffer very similar to
    the group buffer, but with only groups from that server listed;
    quitting this buffer returns to the server buffer.

*  add a command to check the integrity of an nnfolder folder - go
 through the article numbers and see that there are no duplicates,
 and stuff.

*  `unsmileyfy-buffer' to undo smileification.

*  a command to give all relevant info on an article, including all
 secondary marks.

*  when doing `-request-accept-article', the backends should do the
 nnmail duplicate checking.

*  allow `message-signature-file' to be a function to return the
 value of the signature file.

*  In addition, I would love it if I could configure message-tab so
 that it could call `bbdb-complete-name' in other headers.  So,
 some sort of interface like

 (setq message-tab-alist       '((message-header-regexp
 message-expand-group)         ("^\\(To\\|[cC]c\\|[bB]cc\\)"
 bbdb-complete-name)))

 then you could run the relevant function to complete the
 information in the header

*  cache the newsgroups file locally to avoid reloading it all the
 time.

*  a command to import a buffer into a group.

*  nnweb should allow fetching by Message-ID from servers.

*  point in the article buffer doesn't always go to the beginning of
 the buffer when selecting new articles.

*  a command to process mark all unread articles.

*  `gnus-gather-threads-by-references-and-subject' - first do
 gathering by references, and then go through the dummy roots and
 do more gathering by subject.

*  gnus-uu-mark-in-numerical-order - process mark articles in
 article numerical order.

*  (gnus-thread-total-score  (gnus-id-to-thread (mail-header-id
 (gnus-summary-article-header)))) bind to a key.

*  sorting by score is wrong when using sparse threads.

*  a command to fetch an arbitrary article - without having to be in
 the summary buffer.

*  a new nncvs backend.  Each group would show an article, using
 version branches as threading, checkin date as the date, etc.

*  http://www.dejanews.com/forms/dnsetfilter_exp.html ?  This filter
 allows one to construct advance queries on the Dejanews database
 such as specifying start and end dates, subject, author, and/or
 newsgroup name.

*  new Date header scoring type - older, newer

*  use the summary toolbar in the article buffer.

*  a command to fetch all articles that are less than X days old.

*  in pick mode, `q' should save the list of selected articles in the
 group info.  The next time the group is selected, these articles
 will automatically get the process mark.

*  Isn't it possible to (also?) allow M-^ to automatically try the
 default server if it fails on the current server?  (controlled by a
 user variable, (nil, t, 'ask)).

*  make it possible to cancel articles using the select method for
 the current group.

*  `gnus-summary-select-article-on-entry' or something.  It'll
 default to t and will select whatever article decided by
 `gnus-auto-select-first'.

*  a new variable to control which selection commands should be
 unselecting.  `first', `best', `next', `prev', `next-unread',
 `prev-unread' are candidates.

*  be able to select groups that have no articles in them to be able
 to post in them (using the current select method).

*  be able to post via DejaNews.

*  `x' should retain any sortings that have been performed.

*  allow the user to specify the precedence of the secondary marks.
 Also allow them to be displayed separately.

*  gnus-summary-save-in-pipe should concatenate the results from the
 processes when doing a process marked pipe.

*  a new match type, like Followup, but which adds Thread matches on
 all articles that match a certain From header.

*  a function that can be read from kill-emacs-query-functions to
 offer saving living summary buffers.

*  a function for selecting a particular group which will contain
 the articles listed in a list of article numbers/id's.

*  a battery of character translation functions to translate common
 Mac, MS (etc) characters into ISO 8859-1.

 timeout for all commands.

* When stading on a topic line and `t'-ing, point goes to the last
 line.  It should go somewhere else.

* I'm having trouble accessing a newsgroup with a "+" in its name
 with Gnus.  There is a new newsgroup on msnews.microsoft.com named
 "microsoft.public.multimedia.directx.html+time" that I'm trying to
 access as
 "nntp+msnews.microsoft.com:microsoft.public.multimedia.directx.html+time"
 but it gives an error that it cant access the group.

 Is the "+" character illegal in newsgroup names?  Is there any way
 in Gnus to work around this?  (gnus 5.6.45 - XEmacs 20.4)

 [It works in 5.8.8.]

*  When `#F', do:

      Subject: Answer to your mails 01.01.1999-01.05.1999
       --text follows this line--
      Sorry I killfiled you...

      Under the subject "foo", you wrote on 01.01.1999:
      > bar
      Under the subject "foo1", you wrote on 01.01.1999:
      > bar 1

* Allow "orphan" scores in the Agent scoring.

  [done?]

*          - Edit article's summary line.
	  - End edit
	  - Sort lines in buffer by subject

	  --> the old subject line appears in Summary buffer, not the one that was
	  just changed to.

* Remove list identifiers from the subject in the summary when doing
 `^' and the like.

* Have the Agent write out articles, one by one, as it retrieves
 them, to avoid having to re-fetch them all if Emacs should crash
 while fetching.

* Be able to forward groups of messages as MIME digests.

 [done]

* nnweb should include the "get whole article" article when getting
 articles.

* When I type W W c (gnus-article-hide-citation) in the summary
 buffer, the citations are revealed, but the [+] buttons don't turn
 into [-] buttons.  (If I click on one of the [+] buttons, it does
 turn into a [-] button.)

 [fixed]

* Perhaps there should be a command to "attach" a buffer of comments
 to a message?  That is, `B WHATEVER', you're popped into a buffer,
 write something, end with `C-c C-c', and then the thing you've
 written gets to be the child of the message you're commenting.

* Handle external-body parts.

  [done for some access types]

* When renaming a group name, nnmail-split-history does not get the
 group name renamed.

* Allow mail splitting on bodies when using advanced mail splitting.

	(body "whatever.text")

* Be able to run `J u' from summary buffers.

  [Done]

* Solve the halting problem.
