This issue was resolved. Since I felt nobody was checking the savannah support request, I sent email to savannah-users for help.

See for the details.

did this get solved? i seem to remember looking into it and discovering a spam filter was erroneously discarding the mail, but i can't find that now, and i'm surprised this original ticket wasn't updated. please advise?

It was observed that the qemu-devel mailing list consistently drops certain emails for unknown reasons.

This was seen for below patch series emails sent to on qemu-devel and qemu-riscv mailing lists, both of which are hosted on

  • [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 00/28] riscv: sifive_u: Improve the emulation fid

  • [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 00/28] riscv: sifive_u: Improve the emulation fid

You can see from above archive that patch email [20/28] and [26/28] are missing.

These patch emails were sent using 'git send-email' via gmail's smtp service. To troubleshoot the problem, I resent these 2 emails to qemu-devel/qemu-riscv mailing list twice, but mailing list did not receive them. To verify whether it is related to gmail itself, I included a 'bcc' to my another private email address at the same time when I sent to these 2 mailing lists, and my another private email address did receive these 2 patch emails.

Note: patchew also reported that only 26 patches were received. See below:


So the problem seems to be with the qemu-devel/qemu-riscv mailing lists. This is really annoying. Please investigate what's wrong with the mailing list service. Thanks!
