No, the description is wrong of course the messages are /received/ as
attachments, they are received as everybody else does. There are no
special messages crafted for gmail users, the original source is the
same for all.
But gmail /*displays*/ them as a single message. Whether you consider
this as a bug or feature is up to you :-)

I'm a gmail user as well, And I cannot reproduce the problem. So there
is no point in requesting the original mail anymore. When I reply to a
digest mail, the whole digest mail is quoted, all is included. Nothing
is missing as e-letter repots. I have my preferences set to
plain-text, not rich-text. That is the only default setting that I can
think of that would affect the reply/text-entry box.

And this is the only way of not breaking the thread with gmail. That's
the other reason why it is pointless to try to "fix" something here
that is not broken on our end.

Yes, and as written: I cannot see any reason to subscribe to a digest
version when using gmail. I am subscribed to two digests - one is
gnome-announce that I've been subscribed to before using gmail, and
then never bothered to change my subscription, but that doesn't matter
as this is a list where I only receive stuff, never post myself, and
the other one is the test-list that I subscribed to in order to check
this problem-report.

Using gmail for mailinglists were you reply to is anti-social as
written before, as you don't have a chance of keeping the thread. You
will always break the thread on reply, messing the lists up for
everyone, those who read it later in one of the archives, anyone who
uses a threaded reader (and that also includes gmail, where "threaded"
is more like "collected by summary).


PS: I very much dislike the change in focus/scrolling behaviour gmail
introduced in the last weeks (index view jumps to where you scrolled
to while reading, when you scroll down to read a message and get back
to the index, you are at the bottom/scrolled down view of the index,
previously it restored the view of the index independend where you
were when reading.
I mention this as a prove that I'm really using gmail to read my mail,
and I'm sure e-letter knows what I'm talking about here)
