I'm sorry for having to ask this question. I've perused the FAQ, skimmed
the index message titles, and looked at the documentation, and while I'm
sure the answer to my question is somewhere, I wasn't able to find it.
I want to have an annotated index file. I went to the trouble of putting
this in my rc file:
<!-- Annotation begin -->
<!-- Annotation end -->
The obvious problem is that when I add new messages, apparently the index
list is overwritten rather than appended to, so I lose all my annotations.
How can I keep them?
With a great bit of difficulty. Mhonarc currently does not
support annotations. Since the index pages are rewritten each time
an update occurs, annotations will either need to be stored in
the database, or in a separate file, to provide preservations of
the annotations by mhonarc.
For now, you will have to do some ugly work to do what you want.
