How quickly. Uh, this time... Yes, completely useless archives-on-web
is just waste of it, while Gmane is surely kick-ass in reading
everything, including backlogs/archives.

Should i reopen/post/close? Or additional info just not needed for
"thousands of users and indexing search engines"?

While policy problems i left out, subject, to, or other header magic
would be fine technically.
