Since there are a lot of repeating issues in regards to support for CIDER, I figured that adding a section to https://cider.readthedocs.io/en/stable/about/support/ might be an idea. Such as: - what was your previous/current version of Emacs, OS, deps/lein/boot, CIDER, nREPL, piggieback, figwheel, clj-refactor… with examples on how to obtain those version numbers, that should be provided when asking a question. That way it speeds up the whole troubleshooting process. But while looking at that page, there is talk of a mailing list on Google Groups. When I try to access that URL: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/cider-emacs I get:

This group either doesn't exist, or you don't have permission to access it. If you're sure this group exists, contact the Owner of the group and ask them to give you access.
1. I can create the PR for the information that should be provided, if you think that it’s a good idea, but is the intro to the Support section the right place for this information to be placed the correct place to add it? 2. Does the Google Group exist or is it just a relic of a bygone era? (If it doesn’t exist and the idea is for it to exist, can we create it at some more liberal minded solution, like https://www.freelists.org/? ) Thanks

The link works for me. That’s weird.

I’m always open to improving the docs. The support docs are basic indeed and I wanted to extend them to encourage more people to provide support for others. I was also thinking of adding Zulip and Clojureverse there.

bozhidar08:06:55

Generally I don’t really pay attention to anything except Slack and GitHub, but I also can’t support everyone, so I’m hoping to get to a point where more people are answering the questions of others (as most support requests are about trivial things).

It never gained much traction, and I’m open to killing it. Google Groups are super lame anyways. Clojure was using Google Groups a lot back in the day, so at the time this made sense. Now - not so much.

dotemacs08:06:00

This is what I get for the Google group. I tried changing my profiles, but that gives me back the same result. I’m definitely logged into my Google profiles…

dotemacs08:06:23

Reloading does not change anything.

bozhidar09:06:12

Works for me. A mystery. 🙂

manuel10:06:53

I get the same message as @dotemacs when I try to open the Google Groups link. Mystery indeed.

practicalli14:06:39

I am not able to access the google group either. Perhaps its best to delete the google group

bozhidar14:06:56

That’d be fine by me.

dotemacs14:06:21

But some important, historical data could be lost. So maybe make sure that it really is world readable and just make it read only, rather than deleting it. After all, it is on Google’s servers…

bozhidar14:06:50

I don’t see any setting implying that the group is private. There’s not much in the mailing list - on average it got 10 threads per year.

is anyone getting this:

skrat23:06:21

cider-version = 0.22.0-snapshot

skrat23:06:04

GNU Emacs 27.0.50 (recent build)
