Earlier today I added gwene as a backend for gnus.
(add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods '(nntp "news.gwene.org"))
I then added a few feeds that I wanted to read and keep up to date on. One of which was
gmane.emacs.devel. This group has over 200,000 articles/messages and every time I want to read an article it seems to download all 200,000. This takes an incredible amount of time.
I read about how gnus can cache articles and that seems very promising. The manual though said that it was bad practice, but I went ahead and tried the code that they suggested
(setq gnus-use-cache t). This had no effect though.
Long story short my question is: how can I save an offline copy of a mailing list for fast access and offline use, using gwene or something else.
