They don't work because they are constructed using the
Archiver.GetBaseArchiveURL() method which doesn't use
Site.get_archpath(). For public archives, assuming you haven't changed
PUBLIC_ARCHIVE_URL = 'http://%(hostname)s/pipermail/%(listname)s'
I think you can put
(watchout for wrapped line) in mm_cfg.py to fix.
For private archives, you will need to edit the definition of
GetBaseArchiveURL() in Mailman/Archiver/Archiver.py or possibly you
can make the old URL work with a rewrite rule in your web server.

The links in the archive itself are all relative, so that should be OK.
I think you're probably OK in general if you fix the stuff in 1), but
I haven't really looked hard enough to verify this. Of course, if you
patch Archiver.py, you have to maintain the patch across upgrades.

Brad has addressed your basic solution and suggested ways for further
reducing the size of the archives/private and archives/public
directories. Of course, you eventually have the same issue with the
