locked Encoding bug (wasGroup transfers)


 

fyi, I've fixed the encoding bug that Marlin's post triggered. 

<nerd explanation>It actually had nothing to do with encoding or decoding the email itself. Instead it was an issue with how we were sending the raw email between the various services that make up Groups.io. We use JSON to encode messages that we pass between the services, and in the process of encoding and decoding the raw email into the JSON message, the original encoding was getting stomped.</nerd explanation>

Mark, I love your ‘nerd explanations’.  It always makes sense to me, especially since I’m not a techy.  Thank you.
