Please stick to the topic.  In this thread it is about mailing lists.

While I admit that my primary goal was actually doing such statistics
and it might also an interesting topic what result we finally can
publish this is also a different topic.  So I tried to clasrify the

The thread is about publishing mboxes of the mailing lists at
lists.debian.org which are containing the information which is also
available via the HTML archive.  It was also about the listmaster
attempt to strip some information from the archive.  Some reasoning
about stripping names was given by you, but
