Hello, all.

This isn't really linux kernel related but I wrote this to track LKML discussion threads better and I hope this can make following LKML a little bit easier for others too.

What matchreply does is to enable procmail to deliver a message into the folder containing its associated thread. So, when you find an interesting thread on LKML, just move the thread into your 'interested' folder, and then all follow-up messages will be delievered there.

matchreply assumes Maildir format folders and uses inotify, so you need kernel version >= 2.6.13.
