From IRC:

jackr: We actually have two attachments-related changes; do you care
about both? Prolly.
jackr: On the matter of "attachments sometimes disappearing," this has
been scheduled for the next release ("Indus"), target end of 1Q09
jackr: On the matter of "long plain messages being turned into
attachments," this is still in the support team; they suspect they
know the fix but are at the point of verification

If the first means "Hyrum's attached patch was dropped, and sub'd with
the message body", the end of Q1 is NOT acceptable.

If it means something else, then okay. But I'm not familiar with that
bug, so some further explanation would be handy, and a third bug
should be filed for Hyrum's problem from earlier today.

The second bug: where large patches, or large commit messages become
unusable email messages? Yah. That would be good to have fixed. I'm
not sure why that one is difficult. Somewhere in the code, there is a
decision point on what "message too big" means, so it should just get
commented out and redployed to the site. Are there other, systemic
problems with that? Well, possibly, but a little clarity would be
helpful.
