ok, I did that.
We're a fairly loquacious bunch, having generated 1.3 GB of list
archives through the years. debian-user is averaging around 135
messages/day so far this year.
It looks like I can save about 95 MB, not too insignificant, by
compressing debian-changes and debian-devel-changes from 1998. Old
postings from those lists aren't too interesting. Does anybody have
any problems with that? I wanted to ask before I did it because
undoing is expensive, bandwidth wise.
Compressing a list brings it down to about 1/8 the size, which is good
as it means we probably don't ever need to outright delete archives.
We can always compress to save space.
