Hmm, I forgot about emacs and the command line tools, since I have stopped
using them long time ago.
It would probably be a lot of work to to fully support mime in the emacs
mode and the command line.
I have another suggestion: don't include the attachments in the pr.
Why not simply store them along with the pr and make the attachment
directory read/write accessible to the web server?
The attachments could then be extracted by gnatsweb and replaced by URLs to
the files on the web server.
The URL's could then be replaced by hrefs when presented through gnatsweb
to the user.
And most email clients convert http://... text into clickable URLs anyway.

Check the gnats-adm/locks directory. There might be some left-over lock
files there.

Unfortunately, no. However, since most people who are currently active on
this list are from Europe, I believe we all feel the need for this. But we
are in dire need of active developers. The drip-feeding of single patches
now and then is too little.

Anyone care to do some thinking on how GNATS should be redesigned to handle

MIME? And how should attachments be handled? Where should they be stored,
and how should they appear when viewing GNATS reports in Gnatsweb? in
Emacs? in plain command-line edit-pr?
