This and other issues dealing with the mailing list archives are being
addressed.  There's been recent messages on -www about there (where most of the
web related stuff is discussed).   We're looking at a few systems that would

1) reduce the number and/or size of files to make mirroring easier
2) make indices of -devel and -user (and others) easier to handle
3) not have a problem with mime encoded pgp signed messages from wichert ;)

It will not (hopefully) take into the year 2000.  In the meantime...

Please cc all mailing list replies to me, also.
