The searchlists script is in the lists-archives package.

I don't need them badly :>, but while lurking through the debian
publicly available internal infrastructure got curious to be able
to see the code and wondered why the scripts were not public, and
if backups were made of them.

Do anyone know if there are more programs that are not public, or
backups not being made of them?

I suppose some of those may be trivial to write but if another accident
happens (remembering satie) and there are a lot of those trivial programs
it may get hard to recover fast or entirely.

Oh sorry about that, I felt that more infrastructure may not be public,
may be interesting for people without access to the debian machines,
and for restoring purposes.

So can the web team commit these scripts to cvs, please?

kind regards,
