I agree - links to search tools or at least explanations of how to use them would be very welcome.
It's 2014, not 1998. Do we really need to teach people how to use the Internet? Not just people in general, for that matter, but programmers?
The other thing to keep in mind is that we're actively trying to remove barriers to entry to participating in the core development process, while still respecting the perspectives of long term community members. That's a long, slow, process with very few quick fixes available, but providing pointers to useful tools (like gmane) to help make them more discoverable is certainly something we can do in the meantime. (We do already reference it from https://docs.python.org/devguide/communication.html#mailing-lists, but that page has its own discoverability issues)
